Snek is a simple version of the popular game snake.
You play a snake collecting delicious fruit and growing with each bit they eat. You are confined to a cage with walls that kill you when you touch them, and you are poisonous enough that you die when you touch yourself as well…
Snek features locally saved highscores and a level editor for potentially infinite fun! When you win the game, it crashes, which really is just another feature, mirroring the inevitability of death in our lives.
I made Snek as part of the programming lectures in the third semester at CGL. It was written in C++ as a windows console application, and is the most lightweight game I have made so far with 31kb for the game, and another 1kb for each map.
