Ludum Dare 42: Overwrite

“Overwrite” by Steven Miller.

“Push batteries and open gates[.] Take pictures and change your surroundings[.] Restore power[.]”

As an artificially conscious camera, you need to solve some very special puzzles in “Overwrite”: By taking three to three tiles big photographs of your surroundings, you can use them to manipulate an almost arbitrary, equally big area in the level. Not only can you unlock the path to the exit with this game mechanic, you can also multiply important elements such as generators or activation fields with it. The mechanic can also be used to overwrite obstacles.

At the beginning of “Overwrite”, you can use this ability only once per level, but in the later stages you can take three pictures. Thanks to the excellent level design, you will have a good hour of puzzle fun with it. The incoming “Eureka!” effects will be so satisfying, especially when you solve a riddle that needs some thinking outside the box. >>PLAY
