Training Set – Fun, Free, Flash Game

by Steve Napierski to Games

Training Set

Training Set is a single level, non-linear game created by John Nesky for TIGJam 3 last weekend. There’s no dialog and the controls are introduced periodically throughout the experience, but never explained. This “game” is definitely unconventional, but an interesting experience nonetheless.

    I had fun with it. Although was it supposed to end as suddenly as it did?

    I thought it was a bit abrupt too. I keep thinking there’s a key combination I could press that would bring it back.

    that was a pretty horrible user experience overall. Was that a game or an art project?

    It took me a second, but here’s the point. The figures in the game are gradually training you to play it. You keep doing everything they tell you to, without question, and then at the end, your blind trust in your superiors has led you to what is essentially your grave. It’s a social commentary.

    When I start it up, I can’t get it to do anything. Am I doing something wrong?
