That One Coin

That Once Coin


This game was developed in 72 hours during Ludum Dare 28 (december/2013) with the theme “You Only Get One”.

The idea is to subvert the player’s expectation about the game goals. Revealing more would spoil the game idea, so give it a try and see for yourself!

The keyboard keys are:

  • Left/Right arrow keys or A/D: move the character.
  • Space Bar: jump.
