A downloadable game for Windows

"In a dystopian future set in Tokyo where fax and punch-cards are still an everyday reality"


A small game made for the UnrealEngine MegaJam 2023 by a team of 4 - on the theme "Antiquated Future".

We got inspired by old machines running paper punchcards as code, and wanted to imagine a future where punch-cards were still an active thing. All the enemy attacks and player abilities in this game are consumable punch-cards.


WASD to move.
Left click to attack.
Right click to dodge.
Space to Jump.

Shift to inspect your current cards.

Your health is your cardpool, when you take damage you lose cards - and when you're out of cards you die.


Pixel shader forces the resolution to 1920x1080 fullscreen. If you wish to play in Windowed mode press 'P'
