Gift Wrapper

Genre: Arcade
Format: Web (WebGL)
Built in: Unity (C#)

Gift Wrapper is an arcade-style katamari-like, where your lollipop grows bigger as you stick to items, allowing you to stick to bigger items. Made for the Ludum Dare #34 48h game jam.


Santa has created a special super-sticky lollipop to help him gather the loose presents in his workshop. Little did he know that the formula also made the lollipop sentient! Can it grow large enough to crash out of the workshop?

Ludum Dare is the classic 48h game jam competition. The theme for #34 was a tie between “Growing” and “Two button controls”, so of course i did both. The planned game was much bigger, with you leaving the workshop to engulf penguins and polar bears in the north pole, stealing Santa’s reindeers, then falling from the sky to terrorize a city. Alas, this is all i had time for.

The LD competition requires participants to create every single asset in the game. All artwork was made in Photoshop; music was made in SunVox; sounds were generated in Bfxr.
