Matthieu Bastianel, Jean-Bertrand Beaudet, Rémi Carles, Thomas Juzanx and Jean Tuffier (the "Simple Ermahgerd" team) are students at Exia.cesi school (France). Their common purpose : to conquer the world. For real. I swear.
The Game Jam is a friendly competition organized by the School of Creative Technologies, University of Portsmouth. Teams composed of 3 to 6 persons must develop a game in a short period of time (4 days in this case), and the game must use 3 themes randomly choosed on Wikipedia.
The team finally created an absurd game you can play on this page. Simple Ermahgerd wanted to interperate and mix all the themes "Snake", "COST" and "Pattes d'eph et col roulé" in the funniest way, using an original concept.
In a future full of terror, the snakes have taken power. The human beings try to resist in vain, until an incredible discovery is made: the COST. A European intergovernmental framework created in 1971 to foster cooperation in science and technology, had predicted this terrible fate, and had stored information to win a war against the snakes.
When the snakes learn this, they invent a time traveling machine and send a kind of super soldier called “Snakenet” to 1971 with the sole purpose of destroying COST. In response to the threat the leaders of COST react by sending their “Scientists Smiths” to annihilate the threat coming from the future.
Because of the fact that this is a video game, it has to be violent and bloody. Consequently, the goal is simple: you are a snake from the future, on top of the COST building, and you have to push the scientists into the void before they make you fall. OH MY GOD!
Every 15 seconds, you will benefit or suffer from random events, such as:
