Nine teams of around 40 jammers are taking part in this year’s Scottish Game Jam, so here’s a handy guide to each of them and how their games are adhering to the theme of deception and the constraints of rinks, winks and sinks!
The Team: Team 00000001 – Dave, Anna, Razvan, Donald
The Game – Bacteria Warfare
The Pitch – BW is an action game that pits you as a good bacteria (like the ones you get in yogurts, we presume) against some nasty bad bacteria in that most hostile of microbiotic environments, the common household sink. As a rightful, honest bacteria you must prevent the bad bacteria from advancing on, entering and therefore clogging the sink by deceiving them into pursuing less hazardous but just-as-attractive desires.
These can include laying false trails for the bacteria to follow or dropping crumbs of food across the sink area to lead the bacteria away from the plughole. Gameplay is level-based and each level has a time limit the player must keep the sink unclogged for. Beat the time limit to advance to the next level.
