Hey Panda3D enthusiasts, we’ve just completed our first Panda3D game jam of 2022 and we’re excited to share the results.
Behold Sandastray, a game about windsurfing on procedural quicksand dunes and collecting resources in the desert. The goal of this game is to surf and glide around to find hovering coins which mark resource collection areas for your dune-crawling city ship.

We built this procedurally generated sandbox game with physics based windsurfing and gliding in just two weeks! This was enabled by the awesomeness of Panda3D and the not insufficient code-slinging capacity of our dev team.

Feel free to download, play, complete, and study Sandastray!
We encourage users to submit Issues on the repo page in lieu of posting gameplay complaints here. There are a few bugs and some built-in-two-weeks rough edges; we may push fixes time permitting.
As it stands, the game is a fully playable prototype of the somewhat ambitious concept we set out to achieve. Many thanks to all those involved.
Requirements: panda3d, panda3d-keybindings
