48 hours game for the GMTK Game Jam 2020 on the theme "Out of Control".

Random Playing Game

This is a daily story about a random soul with random attributes doing random things in order to get past the day, you have no control about your skills and events that will punch you in the face. Disclaimer, you will die a lot on your way to work, may it be a car accident, hypothermia or a centuries-old demon.

Controls

Just use your mouse to click on buttons to see what happens.

About the game

This is a twist to any Role Playing Game, where you roll dice and have a skilled character. But here, you are attributed with random stats from 0 to 10000 at character creation and you have no control at what you're good at, it's pure random and you must roll dice to handle various situations within the game. You'll be dying a lot, but I think it's part of the fun. That make the game more of a (un)lucky point & click than a RPG, but, well.

I also put a lot more work on comedy than gameplay, I hope you will still like the game !

This game was made using Unity. It might have a few broken english sentences, but it's part of a game jam fun I guess. I take a lot of fun coming with silly stories and characters for my jam game, this is no exception.

Every piece of visual art and coding were made within the jam in 48h by myself. Only the sound effects and music were taken from the web. Speaking of that, here's the credits to the amazing authors :

The Title theme: Caketown by Matthew Pablo.

Battle 1 theme : Some Militaristic Music by Spring.

Battle 2 theme : Dulcet by poinl.

Battle 3 theme : Battle Music by Peter Eastman.

Thanks for playing! I hope you enjoyed this silly game, feel free to comment anything and to rate the game, it helps me on my future projects !

...Yea... NOT RANDOM ENOUGH

I like the music and choose character option. :) The game is primarily text and choice based and as a narrative designer I feel like that needs a lot more work.

It lacks a bit of random though.
