A downloadable game for Windows

I created Maximum Mopping during the 2016 Train Jam (March 10th to March 12th).

The theme of the jam was Maximum Capacity, so my mind instantly went to some sort of collection game. However, as the train passed through the wide open farmland of Illinois, I realized a game about maximizing the amount of space clicked the most for me. Hence, Maximum Mopping was born.

This game might have had many working titles that were homages to LOTR. :)

  • Tap WASD to move around the vault.
  • Enter to advance through the info screens.
  • Escape to quit
  • R restarts the level after the treasure delivery arrives.
  • No key necessary to mop - you're just that good at vault scrubbing.

Game Rules:

  • You have a time limit of 45 seconds to clean up as much of the mess in your vault as possible.
  • Any skeletons that spawn in make the area around them much more likely to spawn skeletons and mushrooms.
