Long version: I've always wanted to make a game in a setting similar to that of Montoli's Post-Apocalyptic Unicorn Uprising
but never had the chance. The appearance of this TIG compo seems like a good time to satisfy that urge!
The gameplay will probably look a lot like Mystic Marathon
, which is a game I played a lot as a kid. Unicorns (or unicorn singular, don't know if I can get AI unicorns put in in time) race left-to-right across a scrolling blasted wasteland, avoiding obstacles and using rainbow power to jump over or blast through obstacles to get to the final goal. The goal will be the Unicorn Princess Stronghold or something equally in-congruent with the rest of the game.
-radioactive craters (jump over)
-cranky robots (avoid or smash through)
-cranky mutant plants (avoid or smash)
-rainbow portals that grant a temporary boost
