Batoen Squad

My latest game project on the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. We were tasked with making whatever game we wanted really, curated from three small 6-hour game jams. My group came up with a co-op, what we call, shoot 'm up called Batoen Squad.

The idea is that the one player drives the car, and the other player goes and beats up the enemies with a baton. We eventually dropped the melee and went ahead with old fashioned guns. The driver has to manage fuel and try not to accidentally flinging the shooter off the car by ramming obstacles. The focus was on the interaction between the players.
