MilkSnake is an updated version of my old game Swear. It is currently available only on the Mac App Store.

Web page:

App store:

Feel free to report bugs or request things in here, although I can't guarantee I'll add much functionality to the basic game. I might perhaps make a sequel at some point, if there seems to be any demand for one.

There is no Windows or Linux version at the moment, but I'd be interested in getting one out there. I probably won't be putting any work into this right now, but if anyone is interested in partnering up to do so, I'm all ears.

Thanks to coda, here is a gameplay video:

Is there a chance for the Mac OS X Leopard version of the game ?

Nice work, WAHa.

I'd be interested in briefly hearing sales stats, if you're willing to share. If you do an in-depth writeup, that might be a good way to help promote the game, too.

Hey, I bought this app yesterday, and it crashes when I open it, I am on 10.7, is this the reason why? It is a new macbook air. If the reason is that it does not run on Lion I hope it gets updated soon, if that is not the reason, I hope you could help me!
Thank you very much.

That's very strange, it works on Lion here.

Can you post a crash log?

9 Name: crash log : 2011-08-08 20:42 ID:gXHC4n5F [Del]

It crashes! I'm using lion too. Since I was told the comment was too long.

Ok, thanks! It seems it is crashing while attempting to set up the keyboard input, because it cannot find a keyboard like expected. That is pretty strange. Is there anything unusual about your keyboard setup?

11 Name: crash log : 2011-08-09 18:31 ID:qVjUR1UF [Del]

Hi there,

          I do defined some hotkeys on my mac. (BTW, I'm not the same as >>7, I'm >>9.) The strange thing is, I managed to play last night (I don't know why, it just worked), but today I cannot play it again.

12 Name: Anonymous : 2011-08-10 15:06 ID:P+CKQsjM [Del]

Oh! I was the person who originally posted about it not working on Lion, but yeah I did not post the crash log.
I have a Japanese keyboard on my air, maybe that is the reason?
Thanks a lot :)

13 Name: Anonymous : 2011-08-10 16:18 ID:P+CKQsjM [Del]

Yes, me again, I just checked with setting my input to U.S. (not Kotoeri, Japanese) and it works fine...
So hmm... just a small bug, if you could fix it, it will be great! Thanks again!

14 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-10 20:00 ID:0kgBhNr+ [Del]


All right, that's a good hint. I'll try to see if I can reproduce the crash by setting up my keyboard too.

(I'm away from home now though so it'll be a while, though.)

15 Name: Anonymous : 2011-08-11 06:21 ID:P+CKQsjM [Del]

Thanks a bunch, I'm in no hurry!

16 Name: crash log : 2011-08-11 23:11 ID:qVjUR1UF [Del]

I'm the one posted 9 and 11. It worked fine yesterday, but not working today again. I'm using an american keyboard, but my system is Chinese, maybe that might help?

17 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-13 07:39 ID:0kgBhNr+ [Del]


Are you using a chinese or american input mode? Try switching to american and see if it works then.

My only problem with MilkSnake seems to be with getting started using it. When I click on the "How To Play" button, I see no text or orthographical instructions of any kind. Can you clue me in on how to use the "How To Play" function, or simply provide a written instruction file? I am running the app in Snow Leopard on a MacBook Pro. Thanks!

21 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-22 13:24 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]


Really? That is very strange, it should be showing information. What happens if you resize the window?

22 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-28 05:14 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]


I think I found the problem. Should be fixed in the next update, coming soon.

23 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-28 11:25 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]

Also, MilkSnake now has a new website:

1.1 has been uploaded, and might show up soon.

24 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-09-03 10:41 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]

All right, 1.1 is live now.

25 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-09-16 18:35 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]

MilkSnake Torus Edition has been released:

It is free, and lets you play on the Torus.

1.2 of the regular version has also been released. It has been updated to share highscores with the Torus Edition.

Also, both versions are now sandboxed.

The game is crashing at startup if I use russian keyboard. And it works if I change it to US.

32 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-11-09 13:42 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]


Does it work if you switch your keyboard to English?

33 Name: Eugene : 2011-11-09 14:41 ID:krZbLzFg [Del]

Yes. If I switch to US english, application starts normally.

34 Name: Eugene : 2011-11-09 14:48 ID:krZbLzFg [Del]

If I start game with US keyboard and then during the game switch keyboard to russian, game works. And game hotkey Z (restart game) works too with russian layout.

35 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-11-09 15:17 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]

Ok, if I set my machine to Russian keyboard I can reproduce it.

Once I have some spare time I'll try to figure out what is going on. Working on other things now though so it might take a little while, but I'll get around to it.

36 Name: Roy : 2011-12-15 00:06 ID:M911Rqtu [Del]

Hi, I bought the game and its immediately crashed!! what to do?

Tried MilkSnake Torus edition on early 2011 Macbook Pro with Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics. The low graphics mode works great but the higher graphics mode shows graphics corruption.
Thought you'd like to know (I know from first hand the Intel HD Graphics 3000 is capable of quite a bit, didn't think this game would be too much for it..)

40 Name: zayko : 2012-01-07 08:06 ID:4kQkdAbA [Del]

two questions:

Are you Norwegian?

Will there be a Linux port? Ubuntu has a sleek store going.

41 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-01-07 16:26 ID:MtAkG5fd [Del]


Finnish, and if there ever is a Windows port there will likely be a Linux one too.

You'll have to be a bit more specific about what's going wrong.

There's a new version of MilkSnake out after all this time. I wonder why? How very mysterious!

Version 1.3 changes:

  • Fix broken rendering of Inverse Torus on some Macs
  • Update interface for Retina displays
  • Fix bugs in keyboard setup
  • Other small bugfixes
