A game about bipartisan community building and nonviolent obstruction. 

Red White and Blue (They're with Me)

Welcome to a society of squares. You play as two squares (Red and Blue) that are working to ease tensions between their tribes. Along the way you will encounter White squares that are attacking and capturing any squares that they believe don’t belong. Be careful, challenging the white squares has made you a target as well.

The Red and Blue squares you meet may be hostile at first but squares of the same color listen to each other. Talk to squares of the same color and they will join you. Use your party to obstruct the White squares and help your new friends to safety.

Gameplay

One player controls both characters. You may also split the controls with a friend and try to coordinate with one another. This game is best played with a dual stick controller but WASD and Arrow Keys on the keyboard will work as well. Each stick on the gamepad controls one person. Each square has 3 hits, but White will kill you immediately. If one of your players dies the game is over. Press the main gamepad buttons, or spacebar to start. Esc key to quit.
