Sinking - OROW 8 entry
« on: 18 Jul 2013, 11:29 »




Sinking is a short minigame conceived and produced for the AGS Forum's One Room One Week -competition in 2013.

The game came in second place in the programming category.

In Sinking the player takes on the near-impossible task of escaping with a stolen submarine, while your pursuers attempt to sink you. Avoid obstacles, patch leaks and ensure your crew stays alive, all within a very strict time limit.


"Fun, confident, easy gameplay. (but I'm sure the engineering was not easy!) Nice to have difficulty levels, a timer, and timed events. Easy to navigate and understand. Lots going on and constant, varied things to do. Attractive characters and background. Fun replay value."

Is it an adventure game? Or some other genre?

It is a "We are all going to die" sim. On crack.  (nod)

No, seriously, it's a mix of jump'n'run, action game, and (since you have to figure out stuff for yourself) puzzle platformer.

It is also very, very hard.
