A vicious battle of selfishness and survival.
There’s only one life raft aboard – and only one player can survive. Two best friends reside upon the boat – but after years of secret resentment and jealousy, it all comes to a head as they battle for their lives.
“Untested Waters” is a local two player controller game – one that is a vicious battle of selfishness and survival. The SS Gentle Richard has been afloat for many years – it has sailed the seven seas and plundered many a land.
The vessel even survived 2016 – but a curiously mathematical sea is calling for the mighty vessel’s demise. There’s only one life raft aboard – and only one player can survive.
Two best friends reside upon the boat – but after years of secret resentment and jealousy, it all comes to a head as they battle for their lives. Try and throw your best friend overboard as you battle a treacherous dynamic sea that will end one of your lives!
Grab two controllers and fight for your lives!
- X – Punch/Push – hit your opponent
- B – Charge/Boost – move faster temporarily
- A – Jump – boing!
- Left Analog Stick – Movement
The game uses 2D sprites and was made using Unity and Spriter Pro. All assets are our own.
The game was made by Vicky Potts and Adam Whiteside from Whitepot Studios, and Richard Gillen as part of Global Game Jam 2017 – for which the theme was, of course, waves.

Following on from our Global Game Jam – Day One post, we are proud to present Untested Waters – our Global Game Jam 2017 game based on the theme ‘Waves’ and a Farset Labs Selected Highlight Game!
Day One of Global Game Jam is now complete (well, at least in local time anyway). We had an awesome time today down at Farset Labs at Weaver’s Court. I really want to talk about the theme and what we worked on, but of course that’s a big no-no until Hawaii begins the jam at 3AM our time! Hello from the future, Hawaii?
