The Reviewer

Last night a bit before 4am I finished my 48 hour compo entry. This dare for me was really all about multitasking: I was handling schoolwork, freelance work and game development at the same time. I also found the time give my vote at the elections.

It’s only fitting for my game to also be about multitasking. The Reviewer is a game about reviewing video games. It’s a parody based on my own experiences as a freelancer for some gaming publications, and the challenges of balancing between work and school like many young people.

The game was inspired by anti-games in the vein of Papers, Please! I’m a sucker for games that gamify the sort of tedious busywork you would never want to do in real life. I hope that I’ve been able to reproduce some of that charm in my own work.

So go ahead, see how you would do as a game reviewer!
