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

STORY
------------------------------------
Hello Broadcaster,
You will be delighted to know I'm sure that you are the last radio broadcaster to grace this earth. I'm also sure that you will not be so delighted to realise that you only have enough generator fuel left to broadcast three stories every day for the next four days. Remember to choose your stories wisely. Chose those that would benefit the well being of the surviving populous in this horrendous post-apocalyptic world. You are the voice of the people, and you must lead them to salvation. It's time to put down that story of Mrs. Prissybottom's 5th cat winning 1st prize in the town’s annual Fat Bloody Cat Show.

Well I best be off, power after all is precious! Remember: 3 reports per day. 4 days. Make it count!

Good Luck! And Happy Apocalypse to you!

Hi all and thanks for having a look at OnAir! The game was made by two people for the jam. Music is outsourced so the audio category is omitted.

The following bugs were fixed after submission:
- Disabled message window raycast collider.
- Fixed the litter text.
- Added a button to exit the game.
- Added more feedback on the game over screen.

We hope you enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!

That's a pretty interesting game! I like the atmosphere, remind me a bit of fallout style (with the music though). I think I would have loved seeing the result of my broadcats (like satisfaction rate etc...) and a proper ending, but that's a cool idea!! Good job :)

Interesting little game. The different choices were a nice mix of humorous and serious, I liked it. The payoff was a little 'meh' but atleast I was told I made the world a better place. Nice work :D

Very interesting little game! Although some art could be better done.

Interesting game, good use of the theme. Some of the mails were really funny ! I tried the game several times, it's nice to see how your choices influence incoming mails. My only disappointment is that you can't make the world a worst place. I'd like to make a mess :p
Good job anyway, nice game !

It seemed rife with bugs of all sorts. I was getting days with zero stories, and then the game would end constantly. I think with a little bit of polish and bug fixing this could be a fun little game.

Nice idea for a game. I think higher stakes would have been an improvement, but I had fun anyways.

Decent game, the gameplay is a bit lacking. Also, the slow moving text is really annoying for stuff I've mostly already read. Still, looks nice!
