We made this game for the Develop Jam in 2017. The event took place at Develop Conference in Brighton and the theme was Risky Business!

We designed this game to work around risk & reward. A sleeping kitty at one end of the level guards increasingly high value coins. The players have a choice of running to the high value coins, but this gives them less opportunity to escape if the cat wakes up!

Since it’s a multiplayer game, we put in a mechanic where players can team up to scupperĀ their opponents’ plans. By pressing a button to squeak at the cat, they can wake it up whilst their friends are deep in the danger zone – causing them to be eliminated! This adds a fun social element to the local multiplayer experience.

I wrote about the design in more detail over on my blog – follow this link if you want to find out more!
