The Only Way Is Us is a 2D local co-op adventure game based on the greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus. Working together, the players will help each other to try and escape the Labyrinth in which the characters are trapped.


On King Minos' orders, greek inventor Daedalus built the Labyrinth, a complex prison created to contain the Minotaur.  Once Daedalus ultimated the construction, since he was the only one to know the complete layout of the Labyrinth, King Minos decided to imprison the inventor and his son, Icarus,  inside his own creation.

In order to escape, Daedalus is now trying to build large wings out of bird feathers and wax. But even for a genius like him it may take some trial and error before figuring out what works best...

Mechanics and Features

  • Play together using the same keyboard (wasd + directional arrows)
  • Collaborate to solve environmental puzzles
  • Fly and explore with Icarus or build and fix with Daedalus

About the project

A game-jam-like exam in which we had to follow a theme and respect the chosen diversifiers during the whole development process.


"What do we do now?"


The Ancient Folk: The game must include ancient traditions and locations of a community.

Thomas Wasn't Alone: Use only simple shapes to represent every single element inside the game.

Palidrome: The game story must end the same way it began.

Comic Book Colors: Your game uses only 4 colors, with emphasis on contrast.
