.World at Risk

by deathtongue - Game Jam Entry

World at Risk

Windows binary, runs fine with Wine on Linux, and should run fine with Wine on OS X.

Originally this was going to be a game very much like Puzzle Quest, but with some twists in the game play and a nice plot.

In reality with the limited time it didn't get anywhere near that far. For the three days to work on this jam, I had about 3 hours each day for coding. Josh who did the art did a kick ass job. I wish I had more time to code to really make use of all the great artwork he did. (minus the ugly flame sprite, I did that at the last second, so don't blame Josh!)

So basically this game loads and you hit space to go through the title, credits, and story boards. Once in the main game you select two alien coins to switch places to try to get 3 or more coins in a row. The radiation symbol was suppose to deal damage to the alien you are competing against, but that didn't make it into the game.

I didn't get time to do the Alien AI, so you basically just get to have fun getting rid of coins and such until you get bored. But we felt in the spirit of the Jam, we should upload what we have finished.

The game was coded in Visual C++, using SDL for portability. Graphics were done with Photoshop. Sound effects were done with sfxr.

We are going to finish the game as we have time to work on it. For the finished game we will furnish binaries for Windows , Linux and Mac.

The Jam was a lot of fun and we look forward to the next one, and hope to have more time for it.

Mike & Josh

Awesome!
Like I've told everyone else, you may laugh only once at my crappy art and then it is forbidden! Haha.
I enjoyed working on this with my partner in crime.
Looking forward to the next contest!
