Dystopicon

by

In Dystopicon the players will live in a dystopian society in which they receive money to watch TV. With that money they pay services to cover their basic needs. Throughout the game they will discover the details of this dystopia in which the government monitors your movements but gives you freedom of choice.   The story will be told through gameplay, texts and comics.   In this demo you can try the basic mechanics and the main context of the story: The Trinity,  riots, the Automatic Euthanasia Machine, the job lottery and the TV mechanic.   The game will be expanded as we finish the different development milestones.   Thank you for playing Dystopicon!   Justice and work!

A funny concept. I wasn't totally sure what to check off as the thing that needs most work. Each play through, I was basically just stuck in a room, hoping to get a letter from the government allowing me to leave the room.
I survived the demo, and the game ended.
After a number of plays, with the same results, I became bored and stopped playing.
Seems like it could really be good, but I didn't have that experience.
I liked the mood, art, and atmosphere. Unfortunately, I just didn't seem to progress enough to keep my interest, which admittedly, is low.
This is sort of like Myst, if the wizards forced you to hang out in one room, with puzzles that don't seem to go much of anywhere.
Maybe I just missed out, though. Worth checking out.
Perhaps you'll have better luck than I.
