Controls are the same as in Fair Winds. Left/right to steer, z/x to control the sail rope. More sailing tips below.

Fair Winds was made for the 24 hour Midwest Game Jam. The theme for that jam was tropical. Since that jam happened during p8jam1, I figured it was fine to work on it a bit more and do the p8 jam too.

So I added inclement weather and changed up the route. I still want to add multiple routes and a really simple "learn to sail" tutorial route.

General Sailing tips:

Sailing with the wind is easy enough, just let the sail out all the way. You can get the most power this way, but you can't sail faster than the wind.

To sail perpendicular to the wind pull the sail in to about a 45 degree angle. This will give you a lot of power for acceleration. Then you can pull the sail in even more to trade power for speed. It's sort of like gears on a car, and you can sail much faster than the speed of the wind this way.

Lastly, you can't sail directly against the wind, but you can still sail well up to 45 degrees of the wind if you pull the sail in close. Then just zigzag back and forth across the wind. This is called tacking.

Not quite finished entry for http://midwestgamejam.org

left/right to steer, 'z' to draw in the sail, 'x' to let it out. Finish all the waypoints without running aground!

Changes:
1.1 - Made tacking more forgiving and added red limit lines to make the sail mechanic more intuitive.

A quick little puzzle game. The goal is to fill up the entire grid with your snake.

Directions:

First, place the snake egg using the arrow keys. Then press 'z' to hatch it. Once hatched, use the arrow keys to move around. The level will reset if you get stuck, or you can press 'x' to reset instantly.
