Description

Unfair Jousting Fair is a 2D videogame about jousting, but with unicycles. Two players try to keep their balance on a unicycle while they fight a medieval joust with unbalanced and random weapons.

History

The original idea sparked from Bennet Foddy's CLOP. We wanted to make a competitive game with a similar control approach. A quick research on jousting ended up with the team developing the game as monocycle jousting. While still in development it was used as presentation for a contest organized by Andalucía Emprende and Gamepolis, where Rodaja won the 1st prize.

Features

  • Quick clashes atop unicycles as you never imagined, with impossible controls
  • Many weapons and characters that you won't be allow to choose
  • Procedurally generated background that have no effect on the game
  • Handcrafted 2D graphics
  • Awesome soundtrack from Madcap (Miguel González Otero).
