Obedience is the road to happiness

This is a small game I made during the Berlin MiniJam on February 2012.  The theme was “Getting lost”.

After some initial brainstorming, I came up with the idea of making a game where new rules are added over time.  Eventually, the player will get lost with so many rules to follow.  One of the atendees, Giles, suggested setting it in a totalitarian distopy, like in the book “1984” by George Orwell or the movie “THX 1138” by George Lucas.  I started planning a game which would play like a point & click adventure, but I soon figured out that it would require a lot of content, so I simplified the design a lot and went for a more abstract representation.  The day after, I made some unsetting music with Renoise, taking sounds from SXFR with heavy processing, and put together this small game using Stencyl.  The game can be very hard or very easy depending on your luck, as the rules are chosen randomly from a pool.
