Devlog - Big Huge Throws


Bigger and Huge-er and Throwier

Over the holiday break I prototyped a whole new gamemode and map, which are Hole in One and The Distant Links respectively. They’re based on the thought “what if I just multiplied all the throw force, sizes, etc by 11?" and it quickly became apparent this is the most fun game mode so far. Even just the basic actions feel good. Check this out:

Hey, do you like videogames? If so check out my game Grab n' Throw on Steam, and add it to your wishlist. One gamemode is like dodgeball crossed with soccer except instead of balls you throw stacks of your own teammates. Another is like golf but on a 16x16km landscape with huge throw power to match. And there's plenty of others to come!
