Tusk and Flame is a two-player, retro-style puzzle game built by two passionate devs in two days at a game jam to benefit the charity Extra Life.

From the outset, we knew based on the information we were provided that we wanted to make a two-player game. In our opinion, games should encourage connectedness and collaboration rather than isolation. Tusk the elephant and Flame the dragon each have their strengths and weaknesses, and can only solve puzzles by working together.

Tusk and Flame is built in MonoGame for Mac and PC. Programming was lead by Armando Sosa and assisted by Jedd Goble. All code, art, and audio are original and created by us over the course of 48 hours for the Playcrafting Extra Life Game Jam in San Francisco.

We hope that Damien, Bryden, and all the kids at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital enjoy exploring the game we've come up with.
