Stinky Snake, a 2D-platformer to be released for PC on Steam June 26, 2018. After being shipwrecked, a snake named Snake, a human child named Puppy, and a Great Pyrenees dog named Angel are harassed by a pack of skunks. Their leader Skunk captures Puppy and Angel, spending the rest of the game taunting and trying to capture Snake. The game is set on a tropical island with palm trees and an active volcano.

The player’s goal is to defeat and eliminate all of Skunk’s followers that are in each level. They must also navigate through all the obstacles generated on each level throughout the game until the end. Some of these obstacles can be used to trap the skunks rather than kill them. In the final level, their goal will be to battle Skunk and his followers to get his family back.
