Another year, another games jam. This time, myself and my colleague Mike (with a little help) built a game for Global Games Jam 2015 at the UCS campus. The theme: “What do we do now?”. Our interpretation?
CRITICAL SYSTEMS FAILURE
An advanced experiment goes wrong, the reactor is going critical and there’s not even time to nip home and feed the cat. Critical Systems Failure puts you into that classic dramatic moment where it’s all going wrong and you; an untrained rookie with no manual, have got to stabilise the situation… or risk total destruction!
The game gives no instructions, so it’s up to you to muddle your way through and last as long as you can. There is currently no way to win, but you can try to last longer than your friends! There’s no high score reporting or anything, but the best I’ve seen so far is around the 4600.
