A small game made for the Slow Game Jam about skimming stones on a pond. Click to throw a stone. Click to throw another one. Spacebar to change which hand you throw with (this just changes what way the stone spins).

This game uses the screen resolution and colour palette of the GameBoy Color because, uh, the other game I'm working on does as well and I didn't change my project settings when I started this one. Also because I'm really enjoying working with low resolutions.

As always, Windows version untested. Feedback appreciated.

Update 1.1: Browser version hopefully works now. Cursor disappears between throws. Full screen enabled for standalone version.

(In 2017 I am challenging myself to make 50 little videogames to get more familiar with the tools. I make no guarantee that any of the games are good, but that's not really the point. This is game #13 of 50.)

I needed this. It slowed me down for sure.

I really like how it sound. Very relaxing.

Cool! Relaxing. Slow...
