It is 1991, a missile has been launched, and the President's IT man is incompetent. You are sitting in an unmarked van outside the White House, armed with a scrapbook of hastily thrown-together notes and an old PC. You might just be able to save the world.  Don't be long though, in one minute the missiles will hit their target, and you will be tracked down. Good luck.

3 different endings, and one minute.

This was a joy to design and make - my first game jam submission! (Hopefully of many!)

I have a youtube channel, check it out if you want to see the game's devlog, or my main project, Lumbermill, being built in weekly videos!

Update: Wow, the game came 72nd of 2648 games for GMTK 2019! I'm so glad everyone liked it. excited to get involved in future jams!

Really enjoyed this game, beat it fairly fast as it's pretty easy to work out where you need to go what steps to take to get there :)

An excellent feature would be to add your own notes between sessions. I did that with Outer Wilds and it was a blast! (of course there's nothing preventing me from doing it with my own notebook, OF COURSE - but it would still be cool).

Pretty fun, but I couldn't figure out what to do after logging in as Steve. It would also be nice if there was a clock showing how much time was left.

The music in the background is the clock, it gets more intense as the game progresses :) and look for other users logged in, might help if you have info on one of them ;)
