Snow v0.1 - A Bullet Control Game

Press "g" to start on title screen. Mouse controls.

A quick game sketch exploring the relationship between money, risk, and death. Based on Chris Rock's idea of "bullet control":

Instead of spamming the fire button, this game requires doing exactly the opposite - calculating risk and reward in real-time, when every bullet fired costs you dearly, and your targets are always unpredictable.

You get more money for killing enemies sooner, but your chances of missing increase accordingly. Basic upgrades can be purchased with enough money saved up.
