Theme: It’s Dangerous to go Alone! Take this!
Many Small Hands - amassingham - Competition Entry
Most of the instructions are contained within the game. Feel free to press 'm' to mute all sounds.
Orphans work better in teams, by trying to head out alone, they are slow, and likely to be caught by the fuzz.
More of a proof of concept than a finished game. Hope you enjoy.
Some people have expressed difficulty in learning the controls ( my bad! Sorry! ) so I thought I'd quickly explain them here :
On the main screen (image 2) you have two options, on the left, is your Orphan list, Use this to look at your current Orphan Roster, and to Buy new Orphans. On the right, is your District Map. Use this to select which district you would like to go to.
Once in a district, use WASD to move your character around. Your orphans will follow.
To send your orphans off to steal, mouse over your avatar, then click and drag out the path you wish your orphans to follow. Release the mouse to stop drawing the path. Then, press and hold space to select the number of Orphans you wish to follow that particular path. Release space to send the orphans on their way.
At any time, you can flick your mousewheel to recall *all* orphans from every path. They should stop what they are doing and head straight back to you. This is pretty useful to avoid cops and the likes.
Hope that makes more sense!
