It was a 2008 Dream-Build-Play challenge winner and an IGF finalist…and now CarneyVale: Showtime is featured on the Games for Windows homepage:
CarneyVale: Showtime is a vertical ragdoll platform game for Xbox LIVE Community Games. In the game, you play as Slinky, a circus acrobat trying to rise up the ranks by performing acrobatic tricks and death-defying stunts through increasingly complex arenas.
You can manipulate a wide variety of props to get Slinky through the arena:
- Catch and fling the ragdoll Slinky around using trapeze-like Grabbers
- Make Slinky grab onto flying Rockets and ride them through a maze of obstacles
- Avoid electrical and flaming hazards which cause Slinky to lose lives
- Dash in mid-air and burst trails of balloons along the way
- Perform special acrobatic tricks to gain more fans
…And much, much more!
