Just a quick preview of something similar to what we will be developing at the camp.

SpugNuckets! A small, fictional,text-based, puzzle game set on a distant manufacturing planet in the Typhon Galaxy, where you play as a Spug worker. You must explore your destroyed factoring in search of parts to repair Nuckets, which are the life support nodes that monitor the factories many rooms. If a room becomes uninhabitable, due to a Nucket being damaged, it will lock the room down.





Full Release
SpugNuckets! on The Game Creators

NOTE: This is missing the graphical elements that will be implemented in games from the academy. This was also developed in less than 14 hours total.

Ah, I was afraid it was. All well, no harm, no foul, other than me looking silly.
