FYI

Game Information
screenshot
Short Introduction: 
FYI is a game completely based on infographics. The player needs to traverse the game world, which is built from bar diagrams and pie charts. These constantly change based on the players actions and movements. One bar shoots up in the sky when you fire a bullet, while another grows with every step you move. The player has to watch his/her every move to make it to the other side of the level. The extinction theme is translated into our representation of bar diagrams. Everything the player does is connected to a wider issue represented in those diagrams, as shooting enemies increases the amount of ‘wars declared’ diagram. The bar diagrams and other info in the game serve as metaphors for the main possible causes of our extinction.
Platform/System: 
Windows
Platform note: 
XNA 3.1 and Xbox 360 controller preferred.

Update:
It is possible (but not recommended) to play without Xbox controller too, follow @DigitalDreamZzz on twitter to stay tuned. We will also provide an installer for those without the prerequisites at that time.
