Endless Swimmer: Spawn of Salmon
Endless Swimmer is a game about salmon making their perilous journey to return
to their spawning grounds. It is a four-player game, with one-button controls.
Up to four players can play. Each player can use one joystick with a single button ("A" button on an Xbox 360 controller), or use the keyboard with the keys: z, c, b or m.
Your salmon will always accelerate forward. With the button up, the salmon slowly turns to the left. With the button held doen, the salmon turns sharply to the right. Double-tapping the button shoots the salmon forward quickly.
Endless Swimmer was initially created in 2007 as an entry to a contest to make a game featuring one-button gameplay. After being shelved for years, it was re-conceived as both a relaxing recovery tool for those recovering from trauma and an action game.
This game was initially created at TOJam 10, May 1-3, 2015 at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada.
