Finally made a short demo of the game. Please try it and tell me what you think! I’m sure there’s a few things that need to be worked out, so if you see something that’s off please tell me.
I haven’t decided how long it’s going to be yet, but I do know that this is just the beginning!
The game I’m working on is called ‘The Last Level’ (the title may or may not be changed later). In the game, you play as a troubled, teen-aged video game addict. When your mom cancels the WiFi, you venture outside your house to find connection to the internet, and while your computer does connect to the internet, it connects to something else as well.
The main character finds themselves inexplicably able to control a small robot remotely from their computer. The robot was built by a young child who is trapped in a strange place, all alone, and has no memory from before they woke up in that place. The child trusts you and will do whatever you ask of them, but you can only communicate through body language, as the robot has no way of speaking. Through the game you must guide him/her through a strange, empty building, solve the mystery of what happened here and get him/her home safely. Meanwhile, when the robot runs out of battery every so often and has to be plugged in for a while, you must live in the real world, do research to find out more about the child’s situation and convince your mom to get the WiFi back again.
The player will have the option not only to specify their own gender and name, but also the gender and age of the child, and even give him/her a nick name if they choose to do so.
Thank you for reading!
