SHORTCUT: A Simulation Game Where You Drive a Self-Driving Car Back Home
Shortcut is an indie simulation game with horror elements produced by Cayde and published on August 27 this year, on the indie gaming platform "itch.io". Shortcut does not have a defined plot. The most we could extract from both the game page and the game page is this: you control a citizen who has just had his car towed by an officer, supposedly parking in an inappropriate location. After a while arguing with the officer until late night, and knowing that your car has been stranded, you end up having to go home using a self-driving car.
Shortcut was produced in just a month for the Game Jam of the Haunted PS1 community, Summer of Shivers. The game is very simple in its construction, starting with its graphics, with low-poly polygons, but it has an aesthetic that reminds some independent PC games made when the indie scene didn't even exist as we know it. The gameplay, even more: the entire game takes place inside the car, and you only need to move it using the WASD keys.
