Gridlock

A glorified traffic simulator with some nifty ideas! I spent quite a lot of time working on this over the course of 2014 (and once or twice in 2015). It’s a city builder where every person and goods transport is simulated as a vehicle on the roads. The key idea behind┬áthe game is that production only happens citizens when are at work, and every minute they spend commuting is eating into their productive working hours. In other words, your city is losing production efficiency because you let a truck get onto the highway at rush hour and everyone is stuck behind it. I’d like work on this idea some more. It has legs, but needs more good systems behind it.
