The Operatorby little-burrito - Compo Entry
Neo. The one. Amazing. Incredible. But what about the operator? Now this isn't just about The Matrix, but just to make a point - what about when Morpheus tells him over the phone where he can hide from the agents? What about when Tank loads the training programs for the sparring simulator? This game is about the hero hacker. The Operator.
I had a much grander vision (surprise!) of this being a multiplayer game, where you're two people playing on the same computer - one person is the agent and the other one is the operator. I didn't get very far, but that's the idea. For now the one agent in the one mission will be remotely controlled by my incredibly incredible AI (Artifical Intelligence). The scripting system came along quite well though, it was my first attempt at a proper console. If I remade one I'd know what to change from this one :)
If you have the energy to download the game and run it in fullscreen, native mode, the console will look much better. Just saying. You don't have to though. Man, I've got to go to bed. I'm doing this from the wrong timezone.
************ POST COMPO ************
I haven't been able to work as much as I've wanted to, but there's been a little bit of post compo stuff done. Most of all, I've reworked the commands system and made some improvements to the missions system, so now it's pretty easy to make new missions. :) I'll keep uploading the latest version in web format here:
There WILL be more coming.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
