A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Do you have what it takes to earn the coveted title of... Good Tripod?
The big Invasion is looming and oh no you can barely walk?!?!
You'd better get training! You just have to move your legs and go forward and not fall over and get to the finish line and celebrate.


Q / W / E : Upper legs
A / S / D: Lower legs
Shift (hold): Contract legs
Arrow keys: Rotate camera


This game was written in a weekend and is based on some bogus-as-heck physics, so don't panic if things get a bit shaky.

Also: the Mac and Linux builds are untested. Good luck, Tripod.


Made in 2 days for the "Other Worlds" game jam in Guildford. Won the jam award for humour.

How to win every time : HOLD ALL THE BUTTTONS!

I really had a lot of fun with this game! It was challenging but in the best kind of way. I think I may have broken the game at the end though haha. I did make a small gameplay video for it and if you got the chance to check it out I'd really appreciate it! (Also, War of the Worlds is a great move, so glad I got to see just how tough it is to walk as a tripod, no wonder they were trying to take over the world haha!) 

did I win?


I've never felt so accomplished for crossing a finish line!

This is awesome!
