one click pony

One Click Pony is a game jam game built for the Seattle Indies Game Jam in 2018! Inspired by simple, one-verb flash games like There Is Only One Level, we set out to make a game where all you have to do…

is click on the pony!

Described as “Mouse Cursor: The Game”, One Click Pony was easily the most fun I’ve ever had working on a Game Jam Game. Short, simple, and easy to understand, it’s simple jam design at its best. I designed and built around half the levels, and did the art direction and production of all the weird 1910’s duotone photos and text.

It was also a great excuse to use the sick lo-fi hiphop jam “breakfast” by potsu x lando. Go listen to their jams, they are the sickest!
