Firewall is a simple 2-player online multiplayer game of hide and seek made during Nordic Game Jam 2014. The green player has to find and catch the red player. You can only see the other player if there’s no obstacles in the way and they’re within your vision radius. The red player’s vision radius is slightly larger than the green player’s.

Halfway through Nordic Game Jam 2014 we realized our idea was too ambitous for a game jam, so we had to come up with something simpler. For whatever reason we chose to then do a online multiplayer game with no previous experience with networking. Fortunately the gameplay itself was easy to code and the result was surprisingly good for something so rushed.


I was the sole programmer for the game.
