Two buttons, two bridges. It’s your job to decide who makes it to safety. You can play Zombridge here.

Our first ever Ludum Dare submission is complete and submitted — it’s been a great weekend. We’ve collaborated remotely from different timezones to build a platformer/simulation where you play as a bridge controller with the responsibility of operating two bridges in order to get the humans to safety.

It ends up being a true multitasking challenge and later in the game, you have to do a lot of forward thinking in order to anticipate how the different items will affect the people on the bridge. Don’t worry about letting zombies come over if you’ve got an airstrike lined up. Equally, steer well clear of the jetpacks if you’re about to save an Illuminatus.

The game was built from scratch with canvas and the latest version of Javascript (ES6) using Babel to transpile our code. We also used Inkscape to create our artwork as we went along.

It’s come a long way from the first 5 hour prototype! Hope you enjoy.
