Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

You are stuck in a room and cannot do anything but becoming crazy while being submerged by letters.

This project is inspired by a French comic « Les fous sont lâchés » from « Les Bidochon » in which a character dreams about floods from the administration paperwork. It's also a bit inspired by the movie Brazil from Terry Gilliam.

I made everything myself in a few hours, and it's more a quick experience than something serious. The idea was to play with GPU particles and to run it in room scale virtual reality later. The music is particularity cheesy, but I kinda like the sound of it.

I only tested it on Windows, and it requires an average configuration (developed using an i5 and a GTX 760).

You can play with a keyboard/mouse or a gamepad (tested with a Xbox 360 gamepad). The controls are the mouse, WASD, space and enter. On the gamepad, it's the start button and the right trigger.

Tools :

* Unreal Engine
* Inkscape
* Gimp
* FL Studio (Demo version)

A VR version of this would definitely be cool!

Yes, I quickly ported it to SteamVR this morning. It's a bit laggy on a i7 6700k and a GTX 1080 but it works. (sources:
