Ludum Dare 40: Ignorance is Bliss

“Ignorance is Bliss” by Aurel Bílý & Eido Volta.

“You take control of an [artificial intelligence called AICO,] which oversees the surveillance of the city Metro via [a] console. You are investigating a possible rebellion. [Surveil] the city for a couple of days while listening to phone conversations, wiretapping buildings, and more.”

As the quote and the screenshot should have already convinced you by now to play the amazing jam entry “Ignorance is Bliss” by yourself, I want to tell you a bit about Aurel Bílý: Aurel is a fantastic game developer, who keeps getting better with each jam he participates in. Still, he is bit of an inside tip, because it is uncommon to read articles about him or his games in bigger blogs and magazines. That is quite a shame, and also the reason why in this case ignorance is certainly not a bliss!

Right now, I would say that “Ignorance is Bliss” is his magnum opos, at least in the sense of creating a continuous, consistent and deep atmosphere – even with seven different endings! And the great soundtrack created by EidoVolta is the absolute cherry on the top. >>PLAY
