Nameoki Bottleworks

In a dystopian vision of the future of the rust belt, Nameoki Bottleworks wraps a narrative about corporate greed, income inequality, and personal agency around a simple minigame about working as a quality assurance technician in a bottle factory.

This demo was put together during the month of November 2017 as an entry in the 2017 Logan Theatre Playtest Party juried competition. You can read a review of the event, including a nice write-up about the game here: https://thirdcoastreview.com/2017/11/22/playtest-party-2017/

I created the concept and handled all of the programming. The name, and in large part the premise, is inspired by my home town, Granite City, Illinois (Nameoki Township), a steel town struggling to find its way in the 21st century. In an amazing bit of irony, the name Nameoki means “smoky,” at least according to Wikipedia.
