Game worked on for the GMTK Game Jam 2019, "One Only"

You play a young man who has been enlisted in the Army during WWII as a telegram operator. Move through the units, from a cushy desk to the front lines as you make sure critical information is sent as fast and efficiently as possible. 

So my game works with a single button. All you need is the "space" button

Sadly, the team I was expecting didn't happen, so my game isn't really a game, but more of a prototype.

The idea was that each level has your operator moving through to more dangerous positions in the war. And that in each levels, there are 3 "scenarios", each with a slightly more complex message to send than the last.

And when you move to the next level, the percentage of mistakes you're allowed goes down as well.

But right now, all you can do is have the operator print messages.

If you opt to download the exe, all you need to do is unzip and run the TelegramOperator.exe

I would love to see this expanded into a full game, I really like the style already


Really nice idea and super execution with this game. Are you planning on putting any more time into it?


Definitely. I rather enjoyed working on it. Will definitely be a spare time sort of thing though.


This would have been a great concept if you'd finished it. Nice work! It's a very clever and appropriate take on the theme. Also a great way to actually learn Morse code.
