As a parent fresh from the horrors of a long weekend, I relate to this video game so hard.
It was made by Adric "Tyrienous" Polkinghorne and his team at a Brisbane Game Jam.
The Jam literally took place over the weekend. This video game is hot off the presses people.
The high concept: you are a parent on a picnic. You must ensure the survival of your children. There are speeding vehicles, dingos and bodies of water to contend with. I swear to God this video game is my life. My oldest son tried to adopt a cockroach yesterday and I caught my youngest trying to eat a rock. This game is too real.
Think Of The Children is the game's official name. It's a Game Jam game, but like many made in that tumultuous environment, the developers are hoping to work on it some more, polish things up a bit and actually release the game for real.
It actually looks like a lot of fun, so I'd say this is a decent plan.
You can follow the game's development on its newly created Facebook page.
