I feel like I had a strong idea, but a packed weekend of can’t-miss events (e.g. friend’s Christmas party, son’s birthday party) made it impossible to hit the Compo deadline. Now I’m gunning for Jam, even though I’m going solo. But enough whining! Here are some screens as I do my best to thrash this out in the time remaining. The game is called “This Is How It Ends”. You are a villain who has effectively ended life on the planet. To understand how a person could get to that point, your story plays out in reverse, on a single stage that changes to reflect your latest calamity. Below is Stage 7 (the beginning) and next is Stage 5:
