GOODS FOR THE MOTHERLAND

by Fidrik - Jam Entry

------PLAY FULLSCREEN-------
------ Web version is back. Please let us know ASAP if you have anymore problems------

‘Goods for the Motherland’ is a 3D game inspired by “Papers please” that involves the player inspecting trucks as they enter the beloved motherland. The player must examine information from the provided documents and cross-reference it to the information available from the truck, which includes aspects such as weight, country of origin and cargo size. The player receives payment for every correct response and must use their earnings to pay for tax, rent, food and vodka so they can survive another day.

The game features a tutorial on the menu screen, to provide the player with visual reference of important objects. Controls are as follows:

WASD – Movement
Left click – Call truck (when used at console) & open rear truck doors (when behind the truck)
Q – Allow truck to pass (when used at console)
E – Reject truck (when used at console)

We would greatly appreciate any feedback you guys have about our game, especially whether or not you enjoyed playing it.

also link any youtube videos if you record playthroughs!

Cheers,

Choppz & Fidrik

The embedded version says "404 not found." So I downloaded it. I really love the communist overtones, comrade! As expected in communist regimes, I detected no foul play. USA can go screw itself. Only problem with the game is that I always die no matter how much food and vodka I buy...

@mrevilguy Thanks for playing - are you using firefox? for some reason the webplayer only works on that. As for the dying - you have to buy taxes and rent or you lose. No slackers here, they go to the gulag.

@nataha sorry about that, we've removed the web link until we can get a solution. Even when it was working it only seemed to work on Firefox (apparently Chrome has removed support for Unity Web Player). Hope you try out the Windows version and tell us what you think.

Thanks,

Very fun take on the (admittedly, as of yet, quite narrow) 'Papers Please'-genre - it was simple, but I found myself having a good time with it. Controls were a bit floaty, but the game managed to shine through that.

Nice job, I had fun with this simple idea. I wish I won the lottery haha :P!

@Marta Viader Great to hear that you enjoyed it! I'd love to see if anyone actually manages to win the lottery, the odds are pretty low.

Fun little game, although the inspections were annoying. Any indication of if you'd done the right thing would be nice.

Fidrik says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 9:26pm

@Drakekin Yeah I'd say that is the one major thing I think we missed out. Whether it be a money counter on the UI increasing or some sort of 'correct' or 'failure' sound cue playing. Thanks for your feedback and we're glad you had fun.

This was quite fun. I really enjoyed seeing South Africa's flag on there :D

Just to nitpick a little, technically you're playing in two rooms instead of one. But, it's a solid, fun game, well deserving a good score. Very nice job!

Fidrik says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 10:34pm

@Devastus Thanks! Yeah although technically there is no door to the office "section" :D

Me (Choppz) and Fidrik were discussing this during the weekend so we decided to keep the doorway open and declare that the office is a room within a room :P But yeah we are cheating a little bit! Thanks for the kind words:)

Dec 15, 2016 @ 2:34am

Quite fun! I only wish that there was more stuff to correlate with the truck, and also some indication of miscategorization.

Excuse me while I go play Papers, Please...
