Idea: As-Yet-Unnamed Office Building Game

Posted on 18th June 2013 by PTSnoop in Games

MSJW

Two more game jams are upon us. There’s the Midsummer Jam Week, with the theme ‘Growth’ and subtheme ‘Secrets’. Then there’s the month-long No Future Contest, with the theme ‘Au Travail / Work It!’ and various intriguing challenges.

And I’ve decided to attempt both at the same time, with one game about growing a business.

The plan is to throw together a rough playable prototype this week for MSJW, then expand on it for the rest of the month until I get distracted by Molyjam. My time this week is already fairly limited, especially this weekend, but I’ll see what I can do.

As for gameplay, things are still a little fuzzy. I’m vaguely thinking of something Theme Hospital-ish, with new levels of the building being unlocked as you progress, but still not many ideas for actual mechanics. Meh, I’ll figure those out as I go along.

Wish me luck!
