It's supposed to be a political satire. The game is called "SUPER TANKER SIMULATOR".
I have attached some of the Art Assets that I built during the 48 hour game jam.
I also made the Terrain; which is 'somewhat physically accurate' to the Douglas channel (not shown here).
The player is the captain of an Oil Tanker owned by a fictional corporation named *"UMBRAGE NORTH"*. Your objective is to navigate the Douglas Channel successfully. You're not supposed to destroy stuff, but shit just happens because islands appear out of nowhere while you're sailing along peacefully, and some of the narrow passageways aren't quite big enough. (This is an obvious JAB at Enbridge's Northern Gateway depiction of the Douglas Channel.) You get lawsuits for running into islands which does have an impact on your score (profit). The captain has a 50/50 chance of exclaiming: "Fuck a Duck." while your ship scrapes the sides of the islands with a blood curdling metal-on-rock sound effect. You can also run over marine life, which does NOT impact your company liabilities whatsoever. When you eventually run out of money from smashing your tanker on so much stuff, the tanker is supposed to sink, but we didn't get time to finish that animation in-game because the 48 hours was up.
That was a blast. I hope to see you guys again soon!
