Eggscape is an arcade survival game made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 21, as part of team Make A Game. My first game jam! It got 10th place overall, and 5th most innovative game.
We all know you shouldn’t have taken the dinosaur egg, but who knew its mom would be around the corner? Aren’t dinosaurs extinct? No time for science, you gotta run!

Gameplay follows the familiar Tetris mechanics, having to keep your character alive makes you play in a whole new way. Making lines will clear the blocks and make your explorer go down.

What you want are stairs, platforms and ways for him to keep climbing up and up. What you want is for him to move out the way so you don’t drop a piece on his head.
What you want is that egg.
