A downloadable Caltrop Core game
Proudly entered in Caltrop Jam 3: The Anniversary Game Jam!
This is a Caltrop Core game where players use their experience in low-paid temp/agency jobs to save their neighbourhood from a threat, such as aliens, supernatural forces or neo-Nazis.
It's inspired partly by the "People Make Games" youtube video How The Games Industry Is Failing The Working Class (I'm pretty sure this is absolutely not what they were getting at, but the idea came to me and I decided it was worth doing anyway). Having worked plenty of these jobs myself, I wanted to make a game that celebrates the so-called "low-skill" work that many young and not-so-young workers end up doing, with little job security, holiday entitlement or sick leave.
Temp\\Est uses some broad categories of temp and insecure work as the ability stats, and it is up to players to make best use of the skills they might use in those jobs to defeat the Threat that is encroaching on their housing estate/residential block.
