Description

Let the hunt begin: Your toys are all over the garden and the neighbor kids are trying to steal them! Collect them and bring them back to your sandbox. Dash your opponents while they're carrying toys to force them drop!

History

ToyHunt was created at the InnoGames Gamescom GameJam 2014. The time frame for the GameJam was from Wednesday, 13th 2 p.m. till Sunday, 17th 2 p.m. We could only develop during the opening hours of the Gamescom though, so about 8 hours each day. The volume at the Gamescom was extrem, so it wasn't that easy to concentrate on development.

Nonetheless it was a great event, hopefully taking place again next year! Plus we didn't have to make any sounds for our game... ;)

The theme of the Jam was "Childhood Games", thus our approach of collecting toys in your own sandbox and stop the other kids from collecting more ;)
