FACTS AND FUTURES is a mild-mannered sci-fi puzzle pattern matching game about decoding broadcasts from an uncertain source. It paints a bleak picture of the result of widespread belief in untruths.

Important Facts

Turn your sound up. The game takes 10-15 minutes to play. You can download it for all platforms below.

Adjust the white wave's shape to fit the colored signal waves as they appear (ignore the dark grey background waves). Use the keys shown in the UI or use mouse/touch on the buttons and sliders. For most of the game, each slider will lock in place once you find the right value.

Other Facts

Unfinished for Global Game Jam 2017, finished for Resist Jam.

Very cool concept of adjusting the waves to listen to the message. Novel mechanics and great message/story.

I really like how the gameplay serves here the actual message. Good work!
