"The incendiary alien weeding game."


Role: Game Design, Artist

Mad Cardener is a idle-clicker game for PC, made for the 2017 Ludum Dare game jam.

The jam's theme was, "Combine two incompatible/unlikely genres."  I oped to combine War of the Worlds-inspired science fiction with gardening.

The game sees you in charge of a large car armed with two flamethrowers, with the purpose of burning away the alien plants infesting a race course.  The more you destroy, the more points you earn.

Most Ludum Dare jam games are made over three days.  Since I was travelling at the time, I only had 36 hours.
