A downloadable game for Windows

Rogue Drones

You're working at the airport and the day seems to be going well, when suddenly you spot something out of the corner of your eye! It that a... drone? Panic ensues – you don't want your airport shut down, so you come up with a cunning plan. You'll get your own drone out, duct-tape a stun gun to the top of it and take out those rogue drones!

Dodge planes, helicopters, the air traffic control tower and home in on the invading drones one by one – and destroy them. When you complete that task maybe you'll make headlines in the local newspaper!

History

Suggested during a 2018 Christmas party - the game idea stems from the TV and newspaper coverage of the shutdowns at UK airports over the busy festive period. So, why not make a topical game about it? First public showing at EGX Rezzed 2019 – exhibited in the Tentacle Collective as a prototype. Mentioned in our talk "Adventures in interactive streaming – a developer’s tale" at Rezzed 05/04/2019

Features

  • Defend your airspace: duct tape a stun gun to a drone and zap the invaders
  • Handles just like a real drone (ie unpredictably!)
  • Customised newspaper headlines when game over

Play the prototype!

Download the prototype of the game, have a play and let us know what you think! The current version works best with an Xbox controller, but there are some basic keyboard controls too (WASD controls tilt, cursors control thrust/rotate, space fires).

We've removed Mixer interactive stream support, but will be adding Twitch support soon so you'll be able to let your viewers trigger status effects in-game.
