People/Power Released for Ludum Dare

Posted on 4 December 2018 by Adam Summerton

We have released our 20th Ludum Dare game in a row!  It's a dystopian physics game, slightly similar to 90's classic Lemmings.

The aim of the game is to direct a lot of tiny people into the mouth of a large robot, in order to generate electricity for the surviving rich people.  To do this you have to place a series of contraptions to direct the little people to the robot, things like giant fans, swinging boots and  giant boxing gloves.  The physics provides a pretty haphazard...
