A review of 2020 in a video game key
Thus, and through a simple two-dimensional pixel art-looking lateral advance platforms, players relive the main events of a fateful 2020 globally; so much so, that through an avatar we are advancing in the purest style of platforms of the 80s while we dodge the main obstacles of last year, from COVID-19 to the fires in Australia, through the fall of the markets, the queues in supermarkets before lockdown (with a special nod to toilet paper), the rise of TikTok or the US elections, among others.
Rescue koalas in Australia and collect all the toilet paper you can while eliminating the coronavirus with the vaccine; And don’t forget to pick up the mask for extra life. All this to reach the end of a 2020 that will remain etched in our minds and finally welcome a new year full of hope … Or not? Of course, the epilogue is most tragicomic.
According to Max Garkavyy himself, 2020 The Game is his first game and he encourages players to make a donation at the end of such a short but intense adventure so that he can leave his “boring office job” to devote himself fully to video game development.
