Scoop was made in 72 hours for the Ludum Dare 41 game jam.  The theme for the jam was "combine two incompatible genres."

You’re the new ace reporter for the Intergalactic Herald-Tribune and your going to bust this story WIDE OPEN. You’ve managed to infiltrate the executive starship of the Galactic Food Corporation®. Your job is to sneak around the ship and record any conversations you manage to overhear.

Unfortunately the starship is equipped with a state-of-the-art bug detectotron which disables all audio recording devices on board.

Fortunately we equip all of our field-reporters with a top-of-the-line ergonomic mechanical keyboard for maximum comfort while you transcribe everything you hear.

Thanks to your sensor-array you can see a cone of vision for each FoodCorp® employee. Stay clear of those cones and you’ll be fine.

Conversations that you still need to record are visible as speech bubbles on your screen. When you are near a conversation, press the TAB key to pull out your keyboard. Once you’ve correctly recorded a conversation the indicator will disappear.

Once you’ve learned everything you can learn get back here and we’ll get you home safely. Don’t get caught, otherwise you’ll get thrown into space and we’ll get sued and just don’t have the budget to deal with that right now.

Controls Use the ARROW keys to move around and TAB to bring up (and put away) your trusty laptop.
