[GAME] The Spookiest Halloween Game Ever!
fuzzyastrocat

It's halloween, so what better time to make a game about the most frightening thing ever known!

Ghosts?

Monsters?

Witches?

Spiders?

Haunted Houses?

You guessed it, I made a game about traffic jams!

So yeah, this is a little interchange simulator. There's no real goal, just to try and build interesting freeway systems. It sounds really, really boring, but it might be more fun than you think.

The game starts with four incoming and outbound roads. To make a connecting road, click on where you want to start it from (must be an already existing road) and move (not drag!) to where you want it to stop (also must be an already existing road). You can delete roads by right-clicking on them, but note that this feature has a history of being unstable. Finally, you can build bridges by holding SPACE while making a road. Bridges allow you to build over other roads, but they'll still collide with other bridges.

The little red dots are cars, so they'll move along the roads that you build. Try making forks so that they choose where to go.

If you're needing some inspiration, check out these most frightening intersections:


Have fun!

Ever angrily think to yourself that the roads in your city wind just a bit too much?

Count your blessings.

@Baconman321 Thanks!

You need to have a win condition

fuzzyastrocat

@pfflyer As I explicitly said in the post, this is not a game where you have to win or lose — it's just a fun little simulation.

LinokBoss

I love this game, is so cool

fuzzyastrocat

@LinokBoss Thanks!

LinokBoss

warning, if you overlap 10 loops, the game crashes

fuzzyastrocat

@LinokBoss That's probably not true actually, what caused your game to crash was almost certainly something else.

LinokBoss

oof, I crashed the game because there were a lot of vehicles stuck in one place :( . Bridges and vehicles disaperared and I cant draw XD

fuzzyastrocat

@LinokBoss Based on the picture, looks like you deleted a lot of roads? As I said in the post, that's very prone to crashing since it's a kinda complicated system.

LinokBoss

@fuzzyastrocat I didnt deleted anything, I was adding a lot of roads, someones where overlaping another ones, and suddenly, all the dots and the bridges dissapeared

fuzzyastrocat

@LinokBoss Hmm, that's rather odd, if I can replicate it I'll look into it.

LinokBoss

@fuzzyastrocat try drawing a lot of small roads, it will crash (also, draw some bridges so you can see how it also disapears) (I think it happens because it is overcharging) ALSO: if you dont draw any bridges is so dificult to crash the game

LinokBoss

Yo, somehow I made the vehicles to teleport and get stuck in the middle of the road, so they cant move XD
Nice game btw :)

Not mobile friendly, but sounds very scary o-o

fuzzyastrocat

@MrVoo Yeah, too many different actions needed unfortunately, I could in theory change some stuff but this wasn't really designed that way
