You know what they say - never trust a space-snake. After getting repairs done on my exo-skeleton, all of my systems are malfunctioning.
My body is doing things on its own. I can't walk without shooting or doing something weird.
What did they do? Leave some digital venom? Expect me to pass out and sell my biochips?
I don't wait. I'm coming down the snake pit. Someone's gonna pay for this.

OverWired is a retro cyberpunk side-scroller game.
You play using only 4 directions (D-Pad, or arrows) and the rest of your abilities are wired to those keys due to the digital venom of the snake oil salesmen.
You must finish your quest to restore your space suit to functioning order.

Code + Mechanics: Alon Tzarafi
Pixel Art: Alex Zlotin

Contains music by: nene, sketchylogic, joth, oddroom


Play with either: arrow keys, WASD keys, a gamepad's D-Pad, or using touch-screen controls (touch the screens and they will appear)


Right - Wired to shoot
Left  - Wired to crouch (evades bullets)
Up    - Wired to grenade
Down - Glitches everything on the screen

The glitch effects many machines on the screen, as well as augmented living beings, causing everything to malfunction or to change modes of operation.
Use it to your advantage.

You can also find a version playable directly from the browser HERE.
