About

Plug Away! is a game I made in a few days as my submission for the Black and White Jam #8. The goal of the jam was to create a game using only black and white. There was also a given them of "Loop."

Controls:

  • Left arrow key or the A key to rotate counter-clockwise.
  • Right arrow key or the D key to rotate clockwise.
  • Spacebar to speed up.
  • Escape key to pause.
  • M key to toggle music.

Controller is also partially supported. Use either the left analog stick or d-pad to rotate and  X (DualShock) / A (Xbox) / B (Nintendo) button to speed up.

Cool game but I believe there’s a lack of color.

Hello, is there any way I can contact you privately such as via e-mail? Thank you! :)

Dechro, I'm not sure if you'll see this but if you do, just please know that my school has an entire club dedicated to this game and your other works. Please if you can make a sequel to this, I don't usually like sounding desperate but it make my day and every one in the Dechro club very happy.  We've thought for a while and some suggestions for a sequel would be moving obstacles and  a retry counter. Thank you in advance.

Hello! Thank you for your kind message! It's really incredible to hear that so many people at your school are enjoying Plug Away.

I think you'll be excited to hear that I have been working on a sequel for Plug Away. I can't give you an exact time as it's not entirely up to me, but if all goes according to plan it should be up on https://www.coolmathgames.com/ at some point this year.

Really enjoyed this. Was difficult enough to make me frustrated but satisfying once you finish the level :P Thanks for sharing!

Really fun game!

The charater is cute but why our bunny has infinite neck?

Really cool plug game, I pretty much enjoyed it! But when I leave the game, my progress doesn't save . . .

I'm not sure what that means. Does it mean something like "same as me"?

yeah

nah hes making fun of you, ´L´ stands for your loss aka´ ur a loser ´

Oh. Well, when I leave the game, it doesn't save.

Yep, it doesn't save for anyone

Hello dechro,

My name is Antonia Gates, I manage the games at CoolmathGames.com. I really enjoyed Plug Away! and I think it would be a great fit on our site!

I'm writing to ask if the game is available for non-exclusive licensing. Our licenses are totally non-exclusive, so you would maintain all of the IP rights and could continue to develop and distribute the game however you'd like to.

Please let me know if it is available, and how much it would cost. I'm looking forward to discussing this with you soon!

Best regards,

Antonia Gates

Thank you for reaching out! I have sent you an email response. I look forward to hearing back from you!

Good Game!

Thank you! Glad you liked it!

I wish you could use the AD to move, alas, this is not a possibilty---

very fun!

Good suggestion. Moving with A and D is something I'll have to add once the game jam's voting period is over.

Thanks for playing!
