Suburbia!

NOTE: Rated T for Teen (swearing, descriptions of violence)

We took the theme "Get Off My Lawn" and tried to dig deep into the mentality of the kind of person that would say such a thing - what is "Get off my lawn!" really about? It's about someone who is unhappy with his life and is taking it out on others. It's about trying to control that little rectangle you feel ownership over, amid forces that are ultimately beyond your control. It's about dissatisfaction. It's about aging. It's about ennui.

We found that it was pretty hard to make a game about ennui. But we consider it a success.
