This game was made in 48 hours for Global Game Jam 2018 for the theme of "Transmission".

Tethered is a 2 player, competitive, sports game where both players are linked. Players can only move around and send signals along the link to their opponent.

The aim of the game is to have the most points before time runs out. 

  • To get points, players must hit a ball with a signal to convert it. 
  • A converted ball will then convert any goal poles it hits. 
  • Converted poles will generate points over time; more poles = more points

This game can be played with either keyboard or Xbox controller.
