A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Play as a sacrificial lamb, don your guard disguise and make a mad dash for freedom through a Mayan temple crawling with guards. Fool the guards into believing you are one of them by being polite and waving in the appropriate way. (These guards have some pretty complicated etiquette.)

On The Lamb is a pixel runner/rhythm game made during the 2014 Fab 48-Hour Game Making Challenge, an annual game jam hosted in Brisbane, Australia. Three keywords were provided in this challenge: 'sacrifice', 'guard', and 'wave'. The game was designed around these keywords.

This game can be played with an xbox360 controller or on a keyboard.
