Sanki

It's winter. Let's go sledding. Ride the slope until you stop or crash.

Controls

  • x/z - confirm
  • arrow keys - you can turn your sled in the air to pull of some sweet tricks

This is not a game in the traditional sense. There is no score or goal. Just give yourself a minute or two to unwind and enjoy the ride. Happy Holidays!

But what does Sanki mean?

"Sanki" is Polish for "sledding". I grew up in a high-rise suburb of Warsaw. We used to have a lot of snow in winter. Some of my most cherished childhood memories are about going sledding with my friends and family. It was something that brought the entire community together just to have fun and spend time with each other. For some reason this has stuck with me more than the actual Christmas celebrations. It was the inspiration for this little project.

On my first crash, I laughed at the same time the little character started laughing! Perfectly simple concept to bring a smile to the face :)

This is such an amazing game Krystian. 
The "feel" of the snow, nailing the landings, the music.

Just pure fun - a perfect entry. 👏😊
