Suffering from some burn out working on our main project, my co-conspirator and I are going to whip up a quick project to resuscitate our creative mojo.
Setup: A young scientist competes in his very first science fair. Unfortunately, his experiment backfires and explodes, leaving him covered in soot. The crowd explodes in uproarious laughter and relentless pointing. Scorned, the young scientist begins plotting his revenge and toils away the years constructing a giant airship complete with death ray.
Gameplay: You control the (now evil) scientist in the aforementioned airship, shooting civilians, security officials and eventually army personnel. Collect research tokens from their charred corpses to upgrade your ship while you make your way to the science fair to have your revenge.
Deadline: We plan to have this game fully complete and polished by March 10th. Fingers crossed!TeamGame Design and Programming
