At the Booth
About People Panic!
Coconoe Inc./“People Panic!” received Bit Summit 5th Innovative Outlaw Award
“People Panic!” is a game in which the players catch village people briskly by using “UFO device” that was made by paper craft. Catch as many people as you can within the time limit, cooperating with other players! (Referenced from BitSummit 2017 official)
Q: Points that are focused on “People Panic!”
A: We focused on the feeling of pleasantness during playing this game. Since we often had business trips for some event, in order to make people with a wide range of ages to enjoy this game, we made the concept very familiar, which is that “UFO kidnap human beings”. Also, fishing rods and UFOs used in the game are extremely easy to make, as it may be broken by operation. The UFO can also be created by paper craft, thus it was popular with children.
Q: The toughest part in the process of creating this game?
A: We created “Unity” in a short term, but it was difficult to model the humans, pursuing the reality.
Q: The good point about indie game
A: Indie game is created from the interesting ideas.
Q: Specific plan afterwards
A: We want to continue creating games, generated from the interesting ideas. At the Makuhari event, we exhibited experienced trampoline attraction with a concept of the universe.
Comment from the Writer
The booth was constantly surrounded by people and the game was very popular. One of the characteristics of this game is that multiple people can play together at the same time. This game contains the innovative idea, allowing people from children to elders to enjoy this simplified game pleasantly.
