Gokoban - 3D Puzzle Game

Awarded 1st place in the 2017 Gopher Game Jam

Gokoban is a 3D puzzle game written in Go. You control the Go gopher, and your objective in each level is to push the boxes until they are all on top of the yellow pads. There are elevators that help you reach high places and move boxes up and down. Levels are read from text files in /levels so you can easily modify them and even create new ones.

It was created using G3N for the 2017 Gopher Game Jam on

Download Windows 64-bit Precompiled Binary (v1.0)

Building from source

Make sure you have the G3N external dependencies in place. Then execute the following commands:

git clone
cd gokoban/
go build

If you are on Windows, you'll need the audio DLLs mentioned in the G3N readme. You may also need vcruntime140.dll. All the necessary DLLs are provided here under dist/win - you just need to "add" them to your PATH, or copy them to the same folder that your Gokoban executable is in. Alternatively you can build them yourself by following these instructions. You can obtain vcruntime140.dll by downloading a Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable.


I hope you enjoy playing and learning from Gokoban as much as I enjoyed writing it.
