Contact Cowboy – Game Jam Build

Contact Cowboy

Contact Cowboy is a two player local multiplayer game made for the Ludum Dare 31. This game puts each of the players into a role. One player is a gunman, a person who has a gun and 6 bullets. Their objective is to kill the knife man so that he is unable to complete his objectives without wasting too many bullets. The knife man must grab C4 from the middle of the screen and plant it on a statue. Once that is done, he must go back and kill the gun man. If the gunman kills the wrong person or hits more than just the knifeman, then he loses. If the knifeman kills the wrong person, he also will lose.

This game is not as easy as it seems. Each time you play it, you will appear as a new person, in a crowd of lots of people. It takes a minute to figure out who you are, let alone start completing your objectives. You must bluff, hope that your friend is not smart enough to find out who you are and kill you. This game is simple, but the graphics and gameplay very well done.  It’s a clever local multiplayer battle of wits that see’s you trying to outsmart your friends, then kill them.
