I decided to kill my previous game idea after I found myself unable to fix several gameplay problems with it.
The new game is about picking up a 3x3 section of the level, projecting it in a straight line across the map, and then placing it where it lands.
Imagine if the player could edit the level. It's kind of like that.
Check out this game demo with commentary.
Overall, I feel way better about this idea. I find myself spending more time playing the game than putting in new features, and my friends can play it for hours instead of just a handful of minutes.
Feedback is appreciated.
