Candy Trap

Description:

Candy Trap is a game in which the player is a frog defending candies from ants by jumping on them or eating them by extending his tongue. The game starts with very few ants trying to steal the candies kept in the center of the screen and gradually the number of incoming ants keeps increasing.

KittenKaboodle

Description:

You’re part of a fairly new band and have been booked your first big gig: Battle of the Bands. The crowd is eagerly awaiting the show to start and it’s time to hit the spotlight.

When you get up on stage you realize that there has been a huge mistake- your band’s equipment has been placed on the opposite stage! You would just walk over but the security guard doesn’t know who you are, you know because you’re new and all. The only way to bypass security is to crowd surf across to the other stage and landing on stage before the security catches you.

In this two-player game players take control of a band and try to win over the crowd by playing their music louder than the other band, which is done by getting more band members on stage than the opposing band. Each player also controls the security guard that guards against the opposing band, which adds to the fun as players try to control two different things at the same time. The band who has the all of the crowd’s support, or most of the crowd’s support after the band’s gig time runs out, wins.

When you click the link to play the game, the link is not broken, it takes a few seconds before the SWF file downloads to your browser.

Space Between

Description:

A two-week rapid prototype developed in Unity3D at FIEA (Fall 2015) on the theme of ‘storytelling.’

The game is set in space, where you and one other astronaut are casually space walking near your station. Things go south when the station is destroyed due to an unknown event. Recovering from the shock of what happened, you now have to make the decision of whether to desert your incapacitated partner and head for the escape pod with the limited oxygen you have left, or try and save him and bring him back to the pod with you.

The story follows a tell-a-tale structure where the stranded astonaut tries to pursuade you to save him. The response you choose will either agitate him (thus making his oxygen consumption a lot faster) or it will calm him down, giving you ample time to get him to the escape pod before either of you run out of oxygen.
