Afrocity Atrocity - Sos - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This is my entry Afrocity Atrocity.
ARROWS - Drive
CONTROL - handbrake
tl;dr - Find the red gem in 'night mode'
Wreck havoc to get the havoc meter to the threshold.
Then, you have 5 seconds to build up havoc more!
The more havoc you are able to wreck, the more time you can spend in Atrocity.
Min is 5 seconds, full bar is 20 seconds.
Use the time to look for Atro Gem while in Atrocity!
It appears somewhere else each time.
Reach it in time to win!
Don't crash cars in Atrocity, or you run out of people.
When there is no one around to wreck havoc upon, you lose.
Don't get alone!
I had this plot... but I ran out of time. So my cutscenes are 100% TV static and no main menu or start screen.
EDIT: Ok, I will write this them I thought of. It's not like I made it up just now. I had it in mind but I ran out of time to include features such as plot, front end etc. Anyways, here we go!
You live happily with your girlfriend in Afrocity, when suddenly she disappeared. He went out looking for her, noticing that despite the city is full of people, they are all... flat! Literally and with regard to real life and 18th century sentimentalistic style he realised it's just a bunch of paper-mache figures. They just go back and forth. The Afro guy (I didn't actually think of a name for him) went rage! And suddely, he ended up in a strange place with a glowing red gem around that evoke within him that he really wants, NO! Needs it! In a flash he was back in reality And realised that once he gets the gem, he gets the girl. Not pondering too long about it, he started to wreck havoc in the city to get to the plac ewith the red gem!
tl;dr - You are alone in a full city. Everyone is just a scenery. Just like real life.
There! And there was absolutely no way I would manage to even write this within the time limit :P

Make sure you have the lastest version of the player installed!
If you have any trouble, refer to tips at the bottom of the game website!
Just uploaded Jam version! Here are changes I made in it:
- Added sound effects
- Added "Click to start" screen
- Customised the preloader
- Added more grass on the map because it looks cool
It's not much but it plays way better now IMO.
