Buy or Die
A downloadable game for Windows
Made in only 14 days
for the TV Game Jam
Theme: A game inspired by a TV Show
This is a 2 player coop game, where you rely on each others honesty, if you don't want to lose.
Buy or Die is based on S05E14 of the TV Series Parks and Recreation.
In this episode Ben and Leslie have the spontaneous idea to get married at a black tie gala. They still need to finish their shopping trip though. As they both believe in the superstition, that their marriage will fail if they see each other before the wedding, they need to avoid seeing each other at all costs.
HOW TO PLAY
You both start in the same mall with a unique list of items on your shopping list. The first one having bought all of their items, wins!
Additionally you are not allowed to see each other. If you do, you both loose! This means you'll have to verbally communicate, to avoid this.
(This mechanic can be turned off though)
