Railbait

Railbait was an entry for the Global Game Jam in 2013. Myself, Rodain Joubert and Danny Day interpreted the heartbeat audio theme as the sound of a train on a track. The game involves building a train out of various different carts and carriages (engines, shields, turrets, storage carts etc.), and then drawing a path through the level for the train to follow. Will you pass through all the gold mines and make maximum bank, or should you rather make a bee-line for safety? Maybe you should go around the mountain to be shielded from the snipers? Or perhaps you should buy a plow, stick it on the front of the train and deal with the snipers directly? Anyway, I really like this game idea. It’s another one that needs to be revisited.
