You're on the Victoria Line looking at the people opposite. You have to avoid making eye contact. It's rude to stare.
Here's the rules of the game:
- Your attention is drawn to the person nearest where you're looking.
- Use the arrow keys to control where you're looking.
- Your bounce back if you move it to the edge of what you can see.
- If you don't press an arrow key for five seconds, you lose control.
Random character generation
My favorite part about making this game was making a different cast of passengers for every game. London is a very diverse place with all kinds of people in it. There are around 75 quadrillion possible people for you to look at!
The game has a weighted random probability function to decide if each passenger should be male, female, bespectacled, bearded, bald, and wearing a skirt, dress, v-neck top or showing their midriff. It also has a set palette of colors for hair, skin, eyes, pants and shoes, although shirts can be any colour. Heights and lengths of clothes are also random, within a range.
