A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Buddy Up is about a young monster named Bud who is attending the Monster Festival with his cousin Cuz when he finds out: he has won The Raffle! But the only way to claim The Prize is to climb to the top of the festival and meet with the never-before-seen Monster Council… a tall order for a small monster. But, with friends like these, that shouldn't be a problem!

Buddy Up is a lighthearted 2D-platformer. It uses a unique interaction to play and explore the fair grounds. By holding hands with other monsters, Bud can form a chain of all his friends. Then, by stacking them on top of him they can, almost like a slinky, curl and climb over obstacles in their path. These published builds are a proof of concept demonstrating this core mechanic in both an introductory level and a sandbox space in which to play.
