A downloadable game for Windows

You are a guinea pig named Stuart who is being observed by scientists that you can not see. Your goal is to complete the provided test levels as quickly as possible to stay alive and become immortalized on the Guinea Pigs leaderboard. Take advantage of the abilities given to you so that you may beat the rest! Always remember that levels are never as simple as they appear, so be sure to experiment for new and competitive strategies.

Guinea Pigs is a 3D-Arcade Platformer where you take control of Stuart the Guinea Pig, who is in a plastic ball. Your goal is to utilize movement enhancing abilities to increase your speed and finish levels as fast as possible to top the leaderboards. You will use momentum and strategic ability usage to roll your Guinea Pig to the finish point. Throughout these levels you will unlock new movement enhancing abilities that you can use strategically to skip parts of levels. You can also use these abilities whenever you want to increase your momentum to finish each level as fast as possible.
