“Hyperoptimistic Postapocalyptic?” Well, OK then…
Filamena Young crafted this very interesting gem that takes the post-apoc genre and flips it cheerily on its head with a game about rebuilding the future to be brighter and better than the disasters that came before. Seems like a perfect addition to Blessed Are the Healers Week.
Have you heard anyone say that the future’s not so bright, and thought, “But I have lightbulbs?” If so, Flatpack is the game for you! Until someone tells us otherwise, we’re saying that Flatpack: Fix the Future is the first game in the smash Hyperoptimistic Postapocalyptic genre of gaming. Flatpack is a game about building a new society using pre-apocalypse technology that you don’t always trust or understand, and solving terrible problems creatively.
*Flatpack uses simple resolution mechanics made to be playable for anyone that can read.
*Think IKEA, meets Civilization, meets Actraiser, meets Earthbound, in pen and paper game form!
*Cooperative and tongue-in-cheek gameplay focused on puzzles, brainteasers, and play achievements.
