Possessed: The Turing Deception

This is the game that we made at the 2nd annual Global Game Jam (Jan 29..31, 2010).  The theme was Deception.

As a incorporeal assassin, you possess and control the bodies of innocents to further your mission of destroying rival assassins.  It’s a networked multiplayer action game, where you attempt to deceive the other players into thinking you are just one of the masses, while trying to spot others when they slip-up.

It can be downloaded from the Global Game Jam page for the game.  I tried to keep a running progress log over the course of the weekend, with periodic screen shots.

Our team consisted of:

  • Michael Noland
  • Nolan Walker
  • Nick Darnell
  • Scott Jacobs
  • Alex Park
  • Harrison Moore

Technology: We used C#, XNA 3.1, the Lidgren networking library, and a PHP script for matchmaking.
