I was asked to create an abstract game which is based off lines of poems that I was given in class. my quotes were
“The Earth’s root, unchanged for eons”
“It is the current that makes the machine”
My intention is to make a game which the player has to destroy the world in an effort to keep society running. This game is going to be drawn in a crude style and utilize bright highly contrasting colors. This will give the game an interesting aesthetic and demonstrate the nature of how our society is corrupt. The player will interact with the game by performing simple actions such as clicking on things or holding the mouse. This game deviates from the typical video game form in that the way of getting an alternate ending is by completing no actions and doing nothing. Even when reaching this ending, the player is left unsatisfied because it will give a message about the player having no money thus failing to sustain society. Overall the message is intended to talk about how we are eating the Earth’s natural resources to keep society going and that it is a flawed system.
