A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Rebels are gathering at night to organize a Coup in the city!

But the Inspector has spies in every street that will send him Tips through Letters on the next day.

Your job is to Manipulate the Letters so the accusations don't hit the Rebels.


Gameplay:

Select a building with a Letter to use the Letters Stamps or a building with a Rebel to use the Tip Stamp so the Rebels (Portraits with Green framing) are not hit by the accusations (Red Buildings).

When you are done with your Actions you can Press Send to end the turn.

You can see wich Letters hit a building by selecting it, and wich Buildings are hit by letters by selecting a building with a Letter.

If a Rebel is hit by Three Accusations he is Arrested.

If Two Rebels are Arrested you Lose.

Survive 10 Days with at least 2 Rebels to Succeed!


Some bugs may happen in edge cases, i'll try to update through this week!

Hey sharedcontrol!

I had a lot of fun scratching my head but I finished this one with a little bit to spare! you can watch me play through here (that should link to the timestamp but if it doesn't you can go to YT and click through the description):

There's some thoughts as I play through that may be helpful but overall I really enjoyed it. Thanks for a great game, I had a lot of fun playing it. :)

Thanks a lot for playing and sharing the video!

Cool to see that you got the hang of it so quickly, well played.

Adding an "Undo Turn" button was definetly on my mind while making the game, but i couldn't quite do it in time for the jam.

Thanks again for playing and giving feedback!

hi! i'm trying to run this game on my MacBook Pro, but the only executable(s) was one with a .exe extention. Mac cannot run that. :( is there any hope that this may get fixed at some point?

My bad!

I just uploaded a Mac version. I can't really test it now, but if you run into any issues just leave another message!

Thanks for the heads up.

its great but really hard

Thanks for playing and posting the video!

I know the game doesn't do a great job explaining it but you can select a Rebel and Tip him so he moves to a neighbor building once per turn by using the TIP stamp.

I also feel that the game is a bit too hard, i'll try to make a quick update to tweak the number of letters per day, and avoid rebels to spawn to close to each other. I'll try to update it tonight.

Again, thanks for playing it!

[edit]

Game Updated!

thanks for the info. will give a try to updated version :D
