Some nights ago I was bored out of my good self, so decided to have a look around Steam for something ‘quick and dirty’ to play for an hour or two. After a few minutes searching, I stumbled upon the game with the cryptic title ‘The Secret of Tremendous Corporation’. Seeing it was both Indie, free 2 play and that it said it was made during Global Game-Jam 2015 that lasted 48 hours, I decided to give it a go.
A game made in 48 hours is not something you expect fantastic gameplay or stunning effects from, and yes this game seems to have been drawn in ‘Paint’ where all the colors are refusing to help out with the artwork. Strangely enough, this makes the game better in a way. The style of the game (look at the added pictures) are minimalistic, but in my opinion this just adds to the humorous atmosphere this game has baked into the backbone of its purpose.
The page for the game on ‘Steam’ says this about the game:
In the near future, thanks to copyright and patent law abuse, all of the gaming industry became controlled by one corporation, producing low quality but highly profitable casual freemium games and ceasing development of any other more ambitious genres. Any game development outside of the company became outlawed, ending the era of indie games.
Assist young Max Burton, a mighty gamedev wannabe and enthusiastic fresh intern on his first day at his first job in the only gamedev company out there in this short, (soon to be) award-winning free point-and-click adventure game. Explore the deepest SECRETs™ of the Tremendous Corporation®. Find out what happened to indie devs and save the gaming industry!
I enjoyed this little game, and if ya like ‘point and click’ adventures with a humorous twist and a ‘crosseye’ towards the gaming industry these days this should entertain you for a couple of hours (aprox the time i spent playing it from start to finish).
