Control the weather as the mighty snakedragon & the rain spirit. Will you bring rain to the pious believers? Or be a benevolent God and bring rain to all? Or perhaps be an angry storm dragon and flood all the fields...


Made in 48 hours for the 2021 GMTK Jam. The theme was "Joined Together".

  • SPACE to toggle rain spirit.
  • You can only push clouds when rain spirit is not active

There are 5 possible endings.


Background


You can read more about how the game evolved in the game jam version. The loose goal of this game is to shepherd the clouds and make it rain. The part that was really fun for us was learning to control the majestic dragon, dancing with its rain spirit counterpart, and trying to come up with and maintain different patterns in the rain dance.


The easy way to make it rain is to rotate both dragons in a tight circle next to each other. A more fun way is to perform a entwined figure-8:

This gives you a larger radius for your rain dance, so you can attract more clouds, and make bigger rain clouds.


There are other patterns that aren't possible to trigger rain with, but that are still fun, like drawing a heart. Perhaps it could be fun to explore more in that direction, where the goal is itself to perform these and more elaborate dances, perhaps with other players!

A fun one

So this was a snake dragon game its like snake on steriods lol, The controls are tricky and hard to really feel smooth but the game itself with the clouds is really nice games can be simple and complicated yet you have made it look easy and bring on a style of your own and that was very good on this one it has its own vibe and you bring some nice flavour too the small detail points really love the effort, Nice snake game

~X~

I wanted to be at good deity first, but after seeing how hopeless my worshipers were I killed them all. Gotta move on, and find better mortals.

I honestly loved this game. The controls were not challenging or disruptive to the game in any way, they were actually pretty simple. It took a few seconds to get used to them, but you do that with every game you end up playing whether it's PC or on a console. I thought the concept behind the game itself was pretty cool and honestly, I wish there was an adventure type game that followed the same basics of this one. I don't have much criticism since it was made for a game jam, so I leave this on a good note. Great work!

Very bad controls. Good concept tho.

Interesting
