Al Dente

Role: Gameplay Programmer and Architect

About the Game

Al Dente was created as part of the Indie Game Academy from the Level 3 program Cohort 5 by The Swashbucklers. Much like Dante Alighieri first descended into Hell then climbed to Heaven in pursuit of his beloved, one gnocchi Alighiero Dente must climb and climb in pursuit of greater destiny and better recipes.


Move your gnocchi to the top of the pot before the bubbling water touches you. Collect as many gnocchi buddies as you can to get a high score. There are three win conditions depending on how high of a score you get and if you escape.
