Play again and again to improve your time, beat the developer, and collect all the achievements along the way!

Go fast, and don't break an egg!

History

The idea for Eggcelerate! was conceptualized during LudumDare 46 in April 2020 and proved very entertaining. The 48 hour prototype was ranked in the top 1% for fun (12th of 1383) which led to building the full version for an Easter release in 2021. Eggcelerate! was created by a single developer with some assets provided by a live-stream community and a few freelancers.
