Timely Transports is a One Paper Game about delivering goods across a perilous jungle … in real-time.
Visit my blog to read in-depth developer diaries about this game.
How does it work?
You play on a physical board, on which everyone simultaneously moves their vehicles and goods.
Every time you move, however, you start a timer on your phone. You must wait until the timer finishes before finishing the movement. And if your attention slips away for a second … the timer runs out and you get a penalty!
I don’t know why nobody else is making these kinds of games. There are so many things a smartphone can do that would be impossible in regular boardgames, and this is a prime example of it.
What’s special about this project?

Or, if you want to use less ink or print black-and-white:
If you get bored of your current map, you can just print a new one, which is programmed to look good and be balanced.
Again, I don’t know why nobody else is exploring this. It’s awesome!
