A Snoot’s Adventure

Welcome to the development diary of A Snoot’s Adventure, on this page you can follow the full development cycle of Devoke Studio’s first original indie game.

This title is an 3D action adventure platformer, with elements of classic collectathons and third person shooting. Resolving around the colourful world of the snoots. You will combine your knowledge of physics, quick reactions of the tight control, precision shooting and the snoots magical elemental breaths to jump, roll, push, burn, freeze, pull and electrocute his way to free all of the snoots of Snootville.

Enjoy your stay touring this project!

Try the demo
Why not try challenge yourself to the snoot adventure demo, right from your browser, no installation or downloads needed! Just connect an XBOX controller and get ready for momentum fluidity like never before.

This demo has been heavily optimized to run in a browser and is smaller than an N64 game, graphics are significantly lower quality than the final product. It is highly advised you play this demo with an Xbox controller. You may need to disconnect and reconnect the controller once the game has begun running. I cannot guarantee this will run on all devices, as I have not been able to test it, it will work perfectly on a windows PC with a wired Xbox controller, though user experience may vary depending on bandwidth speeds and computer specifications.

A reflection on the live steam

24th, March, 2021|

Having now watched Tony from Hard4Games play my pre-alpha demo has been a truly wonderful. But clearly I have much work to do. I have realised the potential in these platforming challenges is being dispersed as optional for veterans, not mandatory. Instead, the game will consist of large open sandbox areas.

Momentum Control & Boosting

1st, January, 2021|

As I have stated before, at the heart of any Platforer, 3D or 2D is the freedom of movement, and expression of momentum, flow between moments and combinations of jumps to create a truly fluid experience. And that has been the core philosophy of the development of the controls of A Snoot’s Adventure. So to […]

Emotive Snoot

19th, November, 2020|

One of the key pieces of feedback you have given me has been that the snoot looked too angry. So it was high time for a redesign, as I want to give you all the most professional polished product I can muster. And I began to think, what if the snoot was not just angry […]

Cosmic Village

7th, September, 2020|

Revisiting the idea from the beginning of this project I have decided to playtest some new ideas for a more cosmic theme, as this will better explain the strange gravity effects of this game, and the snoot’s floaty jumping. I have finally also added this nice water effect shader, and opted not to add reflections […]
