mAIn COMPetition Preview
The game is a classic adventure game set in a futuristic building. It is entirely mouse-based, with the ability to play with a single mouse button only. There is no keyboard required. The game was designed and created by Gregg Bonikowski, and is a remake of Gregg’s previous game COMPetition. While COMPetition was made in under 30 hours during a game jam, mAIn COMPetition is a labor of love that has been under development for some time. It also has an original soundtrack from Liz Katrin; you can find her Youtube channel here.
In mAIn COMPetition, you have been sent to a deserted scientific research facility. What happened to the scientists begins as a mystery. You have been sent to investigate the facility and determine the whereabouts of the scientists.
To do so, you will explore your way through the different levels of the laboratory. You will pick up clues as you search rooms and discover important items. Ultimately, the decisions you make will shine a light on the truth about the laboratory – and you.
mAIn COMPetition is set to be released on May 5, 2019. Initially, the game will be available on itch.io at the price of $4.50.
