Protoboros: Global Game Jam 2012 Entry

Protoboros is a local 2-player video game I made in 48 hours for the Global Game Jam 2012 theme of "Ouroboros." You and your friend play as snakes that try to bite each other's tails.

The game uses a custom made JavaScript engine with procedurally drawn HTML5 Canvas graphics. I'm particularly fond of how the game's background / ambient environment responds to the emotion and intensity of the gameplay. Whenever there is a rising level of danger that a player is about to receive damage the game's environment grows more red and the motion speeds up.

I also put a gameplay video on YouTube.
