Warden's Burden

by Trancelucid - 48 Hour Competition Entry

You are the warden of a psychiatric ward. Your job is to take care of the best lunatics and crazies society can produce. You must make sure they do not escape the premise. This can prove difficult because they damage everything they get their hands on.

Repair walls and other constructions by walking (or running) up to them.

Source code is included. The software is built using C++ and OpenGL 2.1. It also uses the following libraries:

You may need the MS Visual C++ 2010 redistributable DLLs, available here:

Also, on some computers the game will look "paused". There's a problem with the physics in that velocity is always zero, so nothing moves. Sorry! Next time I'll ask more friends for play-testing.

Nice idea, but way too unpredictable and hard to keep under control. Also it's a bit weird that there's seemingly one way out (through the yard), but the patients can apparently escape through any border.

Can't rate because of the "paused" problem.

Not sure why, but it runs much too fast. I lose in some 5 sec, and prisoners/warden move at light speed. Source has some non-included dependencies, so cannot recompile. Compatibility options don't help. Win7 x64.

It does nothing at all for me. I see all the guys but none is moving and I can't control the warden.
