FOR THE darWIN was the product of Ludum Dare 24, the theme of which was “Evolution.” After an hour of talking over possible game mechanics, we decided to just take it as literally as possible. You play as Charles Darwin in the Galapagos Islands digging up hominid and reptile skulls and sequencing them properly, all the while avoiding the clergyman shaking the Bible at you. It’s deep.
It’s too wide to embed here. I would also warn you, this game depends on using your 0-9 keys and presumes your right hand can operate a 9 key. If you are on a laptop, or your keyboard doesn’t have a 9 key pad on the right side for some reason, the game gets exponentially less fun. BUT DON’T LET ME TALK YOU OUT OF IT!
