Here's my entry for the jam! This is probably as much as I'm going to get done before the deadline, though I think it could be a lot more fun with a few more tweaks... There's hardly any sound, so I recommend playing with Rainy Mood in the background.
You work for an umbrella rental service - find clients and take them to their destinations!
- Clients have green circles
- If you run too fast you can lose your client - they'll have a red circle, so be sure to find them - you only have one spare umbrella!
- Don't bump into people, that's rude
- Until you get to know the city, use the compass directions in the title to get around. The Cafe is in the center of town, and the other landmarks are in the corners.
I've actually never been to Seattle! :P I was looking up the history of rental umbrellas after reading about how they used to be a viable business in Paris, and the Wikipedia article mentioned the word "bumbershoot". The festival definitely dominates search results though.
I also included it in an article of my favorites! http://fireside.gamejolt.com/post/jam-favorites-pico-8-jam-1-putidgf8
