About the game
Originally this game was made in during the third UL Gamejam - a gamejam organised by the student Game Development society in UL. I joined because I just love game jams. The theme was "Obstacles".

I've since added a little more polish to the game. This is a demo with some of the additions. More will be added over time.

UL Gamejams are organised by the Game Development Society of the University of Limerick, Ireland. They were awesome and allowed me to participate remotely from Galway!

Be sure to check out the other gamejam entries, there are some lovely things in there! (Maybe check back later when some more of them make it up!)

I have humbly elected to add a donate button to this game to help fund further development. You can still play for free.

Obstacles is the first game/prototype I've released that is sort of playable and fun. please understand that the game is quite rough. If you like the game anyway, or want to support me making games, now you can.
