A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Either get busy living, or get busy hosting!

  • Play with up to 4 players
  • Plant old-timey wooden bombs ("Petards") in the ground, disguised as cute little flowers
  • Dash about picking up all the coins you can
  • Watch you don't set off a petard or you'll Get Hoisted! and drop some of your loot!
  • Be the player with the most coins at the end of the round to win

Coming Soon

Get Hoisted is not quite a finished game. There are a few things missing that I'll hopefully polish up as soon as possible to give you the perfect Hoisting Experience

  • There are a few missing animations, and sounds
  • Needs more particles, screen shake, and a bit more juice

Get Hoisted is a goofy, ridiculous game made for the Idle Thumbs' Community game jam: Wizard Jam 5.

The wonderful music and most of the sounds were done by BadAtStuff from the Idle Thumb's forums (thanks Bad!)
