Type bash commands, slap users, sacrifice goats to make the system work – that is the core of our jam entry
“Frankie is a common IT guy, he just cares about his lovely PCs and servers. He feels that work as admin must be like live in heaven except one moment… There are days when creatures from hell, usually called BFU, are trying to use his loved PCs and spread virus among them or damage them like dirty mouse wheel. But there is one thing which makes his day, slapping the BFUs. So, welcome to IT department simulator!
Frankie, the network admin guy, controls, repairs or scan nearby PCs and servers by using shell commands or performing special admin actions, for example sacrificing goat. Admin runs between his office and computers to fix all the problems caused by the users. The computers are connected via network to server which can be seen in the computer network map. If computer is infected then virus can also spread to the connected server through which other computers can be infect later in the network.”
Made in a team of 4 in a day and a half. I was the only one who’s done a game jam before, and it proved some tips I’ve gathered were quite useful (especially planning wise). I’m glad my friends came to appreciate the awesomeness of simultaneous programming with git
Hope you all had fun, because we certainly did!
Bonus points: play the game to guess the two websites that BFUs are watching when not working on their spreadsheets (not shown on the screenshot above)
