Roll the Life is a game created for the second edition of the RIJV game jam on the theme of personal stories. A prototype of the first level was made in about fifteen hours and is available on itch.
The game takes the main principles of a "roll the ball": the goal is to roll a ball through a labyrinth to the finish. Nevertheless, the game is also on the border of a narrative game since history has a great importance here.
The main theme of the game is the moral harassment within a couple with its mechanisms, its consequences and the reconstruction that follows. But as life does not boil down to this, Roll the life will also address topics like work, children, expatriation, Alzeihmer's disease, cancer, etc. Each level will address a different theme and offer gameplay related to it while keeping the reconstruction in red thread.
The game is currently in the form of a playable prototype but does not reflect all the possibilities and the universe that the final game will be able to offer.
