An old-school point-and-click sci-fi mystery adventure game set in a futuristic building. mAIn COMPetition is a first official game made by Lunar Shuriken - an independent game development studio from Poland. The game was designed and created by Gregg Bonikowski, featuring music by Liz Katrin. The game is one-button only, meaning you control it using only one button of your mouse. No keyboard required. This is a full remake of the original game called COMPetition, made under 30 hours during a game jam.

It was a very hectic and intense time for all working on the game: me and Liz Katrin, our great composer and sound effects designer.

We passed a most important milestone: we’ve built a fully playable game prototype. That means one can play the game from the very beginning to each of two possible endings.

Thus it is now possible to test the entirety of the game, instead of only fragments of gameplay or a single location.

Here’s a detailed list of what has been achieved during the past month:

  • Dialog system fully implemented, tested and working.
  • 99% of the in-game text is… in game!
  • All locations and object done as far as the logic and gameplay go. Currently under an intense testing.
  • 3 soundtracks from Liz already in the game.
  • Added most of mock-up sound effects.
  • Tutorial completed!
  • Both endings implemented. Now you can actually play the game to its very end (or another one!)
  • Few first special effects added to the game. Transitions between screens, added the navigation system.
  • Intense bug hunting on a daily basis!
  • First testing sessions commenced!
