You're in deep space and something's collided with the ship. Main power is offline and you're trapped. It's lucky you have access to this walker control terminal. It's a little old but with these two robots and some clever thinking you might be able to get power back on-line and save the day. Control two walker robots and puzzle your way through 30 levels to restore power, reactivate the life support and solve the mystery of the collision. An unknown voice on the other end of the terminal is your only guide. Find the data-stream collectables in each level to unlock Miiverse stamps. Use them in the walker control terminal to call for help or broadcast help to others.
Factotum is a game about isolation and remote communication. It's a game about working together with people over long distances and coordinating work, friendships and family life through a screen rather than face to face. It's also a game about how by taking small steps and working together we can make great successes. I started working on the game after moving abroad for the first time. The themes of isolation and remote communication were quite litteral for me as I set up my new life away from friends and family.
