For a while now I’ve been pushing back and forth a concept in my head inspired by an episode of Black Mirror, Metalhead (season 4 Episode 5). Since I have no clue yet what direction I’d like to take this game in I’ve decided to code name the project Metalhead as I explore and flesh out more of its concept. I’ll outline the basic concept below but if you’ve never seen the episode or Black Mirror, in general, I’d highly recommend it!
The basic concept of this game is relatively simple. You, the player, are trapped in an enclosed environment. In order to escape you would have to explore your surrounding and put clues together to find a way out. However, you are not alone. There is an artificial intelligence patrolling the area. In order to successfully make it out alive, you would have to avoid this AI at all cost. Getting caught by this AI will result in an instant game over if it gets too close to you.
