Incompetent Peasants, Incompetent Noble

Made in the 2015 Global Game Jam

Brian Kang + Wyatt Yeong + Chris McGinnis + Alex Feigenbaum + Terry Li + Mauricio Juliano dos Santos

A single player 2D sidescroller where you control four incompetent peasants trying to fulfill the demands of their equally incompetent Noble as they attempt to secure their destiny.

Each peasant is controlled by a wheel that has 5 commands on it. Press a number, and the wheels rotate 1 toward the number that you chose – while one peasant might do the correct thing, the wheels of the other 3 might rotate toward a command that make no sense when the group performs their action collectively. This system imitates the feeling of trying to control a ragtag, incompetent group that cannot do anything right.
