We are a rock band from Mexico. We made a web videogame to enter the JAM of the 31 edition of the Ludum Dare. We used Kaiser, a song from Human Stalings, our first EP as the main drive of the game. The game makes a connection between the dissent at the way things are supposed to be in life and the way things are supposed to be in the game. All this occurs through the experience of a runaway bride, which makes sense for the song.
We only had three days to produce the game, so we decided to make a game with arcade like mechanics, with certain difficulty that offered players a real challenge, while also providing a serious twist on the common themes and graphic styles of arcade like games.
The theme of this Ludum Dare was “Entire game on one screen”, so we made a game where everything except the player can leave the screen. In that way, we also made the player a heroine struggling to survive, instead of the traditional hero guy who powers over every obstacle to achieve his goals; that way the desperation to survive completes the idea of the player struggling against the rules of the game. The game offers an exit to this survival experience: if the player is skilled enough, he can destroy the screen, and do away with the game.
Thanks for playing : )
