LD29 game concept

Interpreting “beneath the surface” as “secrets” and “hidden in plain sight” gave me the idea for a game about email. No, wait, bear with me. This might actually be something.

As an investigator with a shady branch that does not officially exist, you receive a hot tip from your best informant about something going down. Someone named Paul and someone named Sue are conspiring to dump their household garbage in the lake, to avoid paying for extra trash pickup! You don’t know who they are or where they work, and you don’t know when they’re going to do it, but you had better figure it out before it happens or the city will undoubtedly be sued by the local environmental protection advocacy group. This is serious business. It’s time to tap some corporate networks and intercept some email. The clock is ticking. Will you identify the conspirators and collect all the information you need in time to make your accusation stick and save the city budget?

The game will absolutely not be called “Where in the web is Carmen Sandiego?”

It seems the April LD is the web game LD for me. No base code (ignore my “I’m in”) this time, just AngularJS and wracking my brain to remember how to use it.
