Nordic Game Jam 2018: Life On The Roll

“Life On The Roll” by Niklas MikkelsenDidrik Lepistö & Lucas Gullbo.

“Sit besides a nice lady[.] Listen to ducks[.] Enrage a bandit[.] Feed ducks[.]”

This entry for the Nordic Game Jam 2018 has a special kind of cuteness and humor in it: While you embody a cute, little bicycle and can take a ride to the local lake to get the task to find bread for the sweet little ducklings, you are also absurdly ‘strong’. If you don’t move carefully enough, you are able to destroy mailboxes, booths and other things just by touching them.

But this rampage aspect is also hilarious, because it feels so weirdly juicy and good to stomp it all down. So let me end this article by quoting a very smart man, who sang about the advantages of this special means of transportation a few decades ago: “Bicycle bicycle bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle, bicycle – come on! -, bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike, I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like!” >>PLAY
