One Minor Incident

It’s a typical day, you arrive to work ready to go. It’s the Friday before a long weekend.  You’ve been asked to clean the main mixing room before the next shift begins. They start in 5 minutes so it can’t be anything major. As you arrive at the mixing room you’re informed that there was a minor incident requiring cleanup. How bad can it be?

One Minor Incident is the eighth chapter in my One day at a time series. The series was begun as a means for me to practice coming up with simple games. I set myself a few rules to try and ensure they games stay simple:

  • I get 20 hrs to develop and upload each game.
  • No individual game can be released until the collection is complete.
  • Once all games are complete I get 4 additional hours per game to polish them.
  • All games are done solo but I can use third party assets.

With the rules in place the question was then what would I use as prompts? I decided on working my way through all of the Global Game Jam themes in order. One Minor Incident is based on the 2015 Global Game Jam theme of “What do we do now?”.
