The Social Distance Game
A downloadable game
Inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic, you're playing as Ghostie who's trying to avoid bumping into pedestrians. Got to maintain a healthy social distance of course!
This is my first game for the Arduboy - and Arduino based handheld console! If you got one, you can upload the .hex file. If you don't, no problem! You can play it on this online emulator:
- D-PAD: Movement
- A/B - Pause (Z/X in online emulator)
You can find the full source with all it's C++ glory here: https://github.com/msanatan/TheSocialDistanceGame
I also wrote a blog post reflecting on my experience here: https://msanatan.com/blog/2020/04/13/my-first-arduboy-game-the-social-distance-game
While the basic premise came from the COVID-19 pandemic, this game is in no way trying to make slight of the situation. Practice social distancing, wash your hands regularly + maintain good hygiene. The sooner you play your part, the sooner we overcome. Please be safe out there!

If you can an Arduboy, or compatible Arduino handheld, download the file and use one of these uploaders to play the game: https://arduboy.com/upload-games/.
If you don't own an Arduboy, the best way to play is with the link in the description:
