This project is complete. It should work as advertised, but probably won't get any more updates.

About the Project

Control 3 plucky teenagers as they escape a crazed chainsaw-wielding maniac! There’s a catch, though: they’ve already lost a few limbs. Created for a game jam at Champlain College.

Technically, this is my second game jam entry. Unfortunately, the first game was lost to the sands of time so it’s missing from the list. Chainsaw Deathrace came from my desire to make a Halloween-themed game. I wanted to make a game about a generic masked horror movie killer, but the jam’s theme was “disability”. Naturally, playing as a terrifying masked killer isn’t a huge disability on its own, so I turned my attention to the victims: Billy, Sammy, and Fred. I decided to make a horror-movie roguelike about a bunch of already-attacked teenagers, but I was a terrible programmer at the time so I just made a single level by hand. I was working on an actual-roguelike remake of the game, but never finished. I still want to make the game eventually, but it likely won’t happen for a very long time.

Fun Fact: If you play the game perfectly, by taking the right doors, you will never encounter the Chainsaw Killer.
