In addition to writing information about the Cold War and studying history, I also do some amateur game design by entering basic game jams. Currently, I am working on a gam jam called the Grimdark Hopeless Game Jam of Doom... a jam where you design a game set in a dystopian grim dark world. This game jam will last until November 10th, 2020 of 12:00 am. I am working with a free, open source online game engine I have never worked with before called the Wick Editor. It is an online web-based program that can be used for creating games, animations, and other forms of interactive web media. Any game created with Wick Editor can be exported as a html5 file and played similar to an old-school flash game using your computer's web browser. This is the perfect kind of file I can upload to itch.io for the game jam.

The game I am working on is one called Thirteen Eagles.

Tablet Screen You Use in The Game

The entire game will take place on a tablet and on that tablet, you will begin your work as an agent for the Thirteen Eagles agency, an organization in a more dystopian version of the modern United States where a security agency controlled by 13 officials who answer to no one except a small council from the Department of Homeland Defense. It is similar to the NSA we currently have except they have slightly more power to look at communications in and outside of the nation. Also unlike the NSA, the Thirteen Eagles have an armed wing with a private security sector that can act within their jurisdiction as federal agents.

Badly Designed Proto-Logo For The Thirteen Eagles

This game will have a basic loop similar to games like Papers, Please! and Border Office where you look through the profiles of people to determine if they are a security risk. If I do well enough with the game design, I might add extra things you can do like determine what should happen to a potential security risk (monitor, interrogate, arrest, terminate, etc.). Hopefully, I can finish the game before the time limit, but I think I should be able to pull it off since I am not trying to design the deepest kind of game.

Blank Title Screen Without Buttons

Basically, you should get some kind of criteria for whether someone should be considered a security threat or not and if you mark someone correctly, you get money and a better score. Do it incorrectly and you lose money & if you mess up too much, you will be fired in a grim dark America where many are already unemployed (and the homeless are liable to be harmed by officers of the law). I will add more information and provide more screenshots as I work on this little side project and get further along with development.
