Hello everyone, some of you may have noticed that I quietly released my game Snake Rawr Rawr back in November due to it being unfinished but contract work had come in that required me to put the game on the back burner. I decided to release the game the way it was as it was already a lot of fun albeit missing some critical features that I wanted in the game.

I am proud to announce that the game is officially complete and can be downloaded for free from my portfolio and more specifically the project page found here.

What is Snake Rawr Rawr?
Snake Rawr Rawr is the classic snake game that used to ship with Windows that I enjoyed playing growing up, with some of my own spins.

What's with the name?
Yes I am well aware snakes do not roar; so what? Well the title had to include snake in it as that is what the game is in it's bare essence but I knew I would be throwing some of my own twists on the gameplay, so I gave it a bit of my crazy flavour throwing Rawr Rawr in the name.

Additional Information:
Along with the installer which can be found on my portfolio the source is also available which is written in XNA 4.0 with C# and utilizes my engine that I have built while writing games.

I hope you enjoy the game as much as I have and others that have played it and sent me their feed back.
