Trolley Delayma (Steam Deck): COMPLETED!

Trolley Delayma (Steam Deck): COMPLETED!

Delayma because it’s like “dilemma”, you see. And autokerwrongt keeps changing it to that.

Trolley Delayma was an entry in a Ludum Dare game jam, where the theme was “delay”. They’ve used that, combined with the philosophical “trolley problem” to make a game which looks somewhat like, but plays very differently to, Baba Is You. “Trolley” is American for tram, in case you were confused why this isn’t set in Asda, and the associated problem is whether to run down one important person or several less important people.

The delay bit comes in to try and not run anyone over at all, as you cause the tram (or trams) to get stuck in a loop of track. Some levels are puzzles, as you try to flip bits of track correctly, and some are a race against time as you have to do them quickly enough – all while avoiding the tram yourself.

It’s a clever premise, which ends up being sort of the reverse of those slide-puzzle type train track games where you craft a route to the end before it crashes. Oh, and it’s also free.
