A modern reimagining of the classic Snake, created for the monthly Eggplant Podcast Gamejam.

Controls - Arrow keys and W, A, S, D, use the mouse for menu navigation

High Score Table

SNEK eats orbs  to earn points and grow longer, but each uneaten orb turns into a bothersome grub  . Grubs band together when close and implode when they get too large, leaving a tasty diamond  behind. Eating a diamond halves SNEK's size! SNEK must carefully choose which orbs to eat, and which to leave, engineering his future obstacle course while gaining as many points as possible.

Current Features

- 15+ unlockable palettes

- Local and online highscores

- Configurable game speed for greater accessibility

Upcoming Features

- Competitive online highscores

- Unlockable skins

(*) planned but dependent on final scope

The game is currently testing on Testflight, feel free to contact me if you are interested in testing on iOS.

Special Thanks

A very special thanks goes out to @grapefrukt aka Martin Jonasson for his excellent bulk-lines, which is used to draw everything but the fonts in SNEK.

don't scare me like that!
Restraint, my ass... Ok, let's see where this goes.

Congrats! I honestly didn't think anyone would find it :D

Thanks! :D Sooner or later somebody, surely. It was great, really, well done! :D

I've spent more time on this then I ever thought... Only thing I need is the ability to fullscreen!

Absolutely wonderful game, if i could play this all day without worry of missing classes, i would gladly do so. graphics-wise, it's very charming and would make a great mobile game. honestly, you probably could get away with not having ads, just for that little extra encouragement to keep playing. just have an option to donate a couple dollars, maybe put it in the main menu. ten outta ten, adorable, great job :)

oh, btw, you're the first game i've ever rated on here, and you get five stars

the game doesn’t show anything and I keep on dying

Unfortunately, some browsers and hardware setups are incompatible. And it sadly doesn’t run on mobile :( I’ve been trying to fix the issue but I don’t think there is much left I can do. Sorry!
