A cross-platform action puzzle game inspired by the classic arcade title Snake. Take control of a snake-like creature in an abstract world to consume food while avoiding obstacles in over 100 levels. In order to challenge both your mental prowess and physical reflexes, Snayke's levels utilize unique mechanics such as teleporters, exploding blocks, obstacles, 'links' between food blocks, and more.

In addition to level-based gameplay, Snayke includes "Classic" mode, a game type more reminiscent of the original Snake - the only goal is to beat previous high scores by consuming as much food as possible without dying. Classic mode supports optional 2-4 player competitive local multiplayer with either AI bots or real people.

This is a great little project! I love to see this awesome kind of development, particularly DRM-free and cross-platform! I would love to see it be updated to work with the latest version of löve though.

Doesn't work out of the box on Archlinux! I could get it to work though by installing love08 from the repositories and manually starting /opt/desura/common/snayke/snayke with love08. ( or just download the ZIP, that's easier )

This game is amazing! With all the maps in the game, the classic mode and the level editor this game will last for eternities. It's a whole lot more fun than it looks, too. If you remember Snake for Atari, or have any feeling for old games, you'll love this. Classical game mixed with modern graphics, music and gameplay is always a success!

I really love it!
Feature requests:
*ability to put our name in the scoreboard
*ability to skin the head and the rear of the snake
*online scoreboard and sharing of the levels in game would be great.
I don't ask for online due to the code stuff...But gltron or others are really smooth online :p

Awesome stylistic concept and the multi is really great it would be good to have a bomberman or any topdown view game with this graphics.
Thanx for this great game and for the really affordable price.

Nice game, I like it. Sadly the game doesn't always react on my keystrokes, which results in me losing (it reacts delayed, all grapic options already turned to off, was impossible to play with them on here; AMD Athlon 64 3000, w/ 1.8 GHz, Debian sid 32bit).

Are you using a wireless keyboard? If so, I do not recommend it. Every wireless keyboard has a delay, depending on the keyboard and battery. Otherwise, I don't think I can help you.

I always get an error when trying to update this game through my Desura games list -

"There was an error during the gathering information process and it has been stopped.

There is no update available for this item. [52.0]"

Hi. Do you have the latest graphics drivers for your video card? If you turn shaders off in options->graphics, does it look normal? If so, does it look normal if you turn shaders on and bloom off?

Yeah I got the latest drivers. Anyway it looks normal only if I turn both shaders and bloom off.
I can really enjoy it now, does shaders and bloom make a significative difference?

It's also cool to see the tech that had to be built on top of the Moai framework for Broken Age (although the doc is light on tech details) Mar 20 2015, 3:17pm
The @DoubleFine Adventure documentary is amazing. Very human, personal, and raw look into small studio gamedev: T.co Mar 20 2015, 3:13pm
@slime73 Since alpha is always linear (doesn't get linearized with RGB components), but swizzle only exists to swap components around Mar 20 2015, 1:00am
Apparently GL 3.3's texture swizzle feature is applied *after* sRGB linearization. Makes it kind of useless for some types of content... Mar 20 2015, 12:56am
@hoserama99 tessellation and geometry shaders aren't available on that hardware anyway, as far as I know Mar 19 2015, 6:18pm
@andsz @tom_forsyth @nothings Fixed-function blending ops can only do so much - many blend formulas need pre-multiplied source colors Mar 17 2015, 9:16pm
@g_truc Missing from everywhere except the list of members of Khronos in the slides: Apple Mar 5 2015, 6:15pm
@g_truc As ImgTec described it, it's nearly identical to Metal's Render Passes. Innovative indeed. :) Mar 5 2015, 5:40pm
@salamanderrake @icculus Good news! Epic Games is making a better Unreal Tournament instead, and it's free and playable right now! ;) Mar 5 2015, 3:04am
