Untested Waters

“Untested Waters” is a local two player game - one that is a vicious battle of selfishness and survival. The SS Gentle Richards has been afloat for many years - it has sailed the seven seas and plundered many a land. The vessel even survived 2016 - but a curiously mathematical sea is calling for the mighty vessel’s demise. There’s only one life raft aboard - and only one player can survive. Two best friends reside upon the boat - but after years of secret resentment and jealousy, it all comes to a head as they battle for their lives. Try and throw your best friend overboard as you battle the treacherous dynamic sea that will end one of your lives. The game uses 2D sprites and was made using Unity and Spriter Pro. All assets are our own. The game was made by Vicky Potts and Adam Whiteside from Whitepot Studios, and Richard Gillen from AppAttic.

Adam Whiteside made the wave manager, wave system, and boat physics. This involved a lot of hard maths - including LERPing between different wave interpolations. He also added the ambient sounds and the Chracter death manager.

Vicky Potts made all audio sounds with her phone recorder, and created all art assets (including UI art) and sprite sheets. She added the parallaxing background script. Vicky is a programmer and feels bad she did so much art.

Richard held the team together. He worked on the main project scene, Character Controls, Weapons, Animations, UI and the game state manager.

We are so thankful for Farset Labs for doing a great job hosting the event and feeding us.
