Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (31 votes)

UPDATE: Added the full packaged version, to comply with GGJ requirements :)

Control the "King of Winds" with mouse+keyboard or XBOX360 controller, sucking up the varicoloured clouds from different levels of the atmosphere (which you must zoom between), spit them out at the highest level, and then blow them together into one large brown cloud, which will dissipate while the King snoozes. Features an online leaderboard and smooth, fancy graphics.

Bugs

We've fixed the bug, but it

We've fixed the bug, but it looks as though uploads are closed. Just beware that blowing while zooming may create a cloud at an in-between layer that you won't be able to interact with. You might be able to suck it up by sucking while zooming.

We've uploaded v1.1. This just fixes the leaderboard bug, and provides xinput1_3.dll.

xinput1_3.dll

If the game doesn't run because xinput1_3.dll is missing, you can either try installing the XBOX360 driver (as described in the readme.txt file) OR downloading the DLL from http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?xinput1_3 and placing it in the brown_cloud directory. Sorry!
