20m (TWENTY METRES) - because 100m is too far to run!

A local-multiplayer athletics game for up to 8 players on one keyboard (or a mixture of keyboard and controllers)!

Inspired by classic joystick-breakers like Track & Field and Daley Thompson's Decathlon - the perfect game for furious local-multiplayer button mashing.

If you have no friends, that's no problem! 20m's competitive AI athletes provide a stiff challenge!

Features in v0.28:

  • HEATS! Single-player mode now involves semi-finals before the final
  • IMPROVED STATS: Record times, reactions and medal table
  • PBs! Personal best times recorded for all players.
  • 8-PLAYER local multiplayer
  • Optional AI opponents
  • Re-configurable controls (keyboard and/or gamepads, based on Input Dog)
  • IMPROVED BORING STUFF: Settings/preferences now saved to file
  • Endless replayability!

Fun game, but I'm getting a weird raised text glitch, where highlighted text, player names and the time are all raised a few inches. Any idea what's going on?

EDIT: Figured out the problem, it happens when changing window size or switching from fullscreen to windowed. Go fix it. :p

Will take a look - cheers for the bug report!

Thanks, I did a bit more testing and it's actually the Change Controls screen.
