Lextinction

Global Game Jam game by myself, Rodain Joubert and Danny Day. The theme was extinction and we made a game about losing letters of the alphabet; Lextinction, if you will. The game has players mutating and breeding words together in order to try and form new legitimate English words. As the game progresses the less useful letters will inevitably slip out of the gene pool until you’re left without nothing but a pile of ‘E’s loitering about. The game is also a powerful metaphor for prevalent global and social issues such as global warming, cheese rights and moss poaching.
