My entry for 7DRL 2013 is a humble puzzle game called Warp Core Breach.
Very simply, the player is a “red shirt” crewman faced with an imminent burst of dangerous particles from a sabotaged reactor. He has thirty seconds to redirect the particle beam toward a safe particle “sink”. You do this by pushing mobile, angled mirrors into position.
This is the first game I’ve completed since I was 10 years old or so and writing simple Y/N text adventures on the Apple ][e, so I’m pretty happy despite how humble the game is.
Screenshot: the hyperquark reactor breach is in orange, the particle sink is in blue; here the player is firing the test laser to visualize the course of the particle beam. He’s got everything set up with over four seconds to spare.
Requires Python 3.3 and the pyglet library installed. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to figure out how to turn it into a frozen EXE in time for the contest, but I’ll let you all know if I figure it out.
