A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

The Unfair is a top-down twin-stick shooter where you play as kid who must complete twisted games while fighting toy monstrosities to win their way back home.

Fight your way through a twisted carnival as the evil spirit Gotchu! plays his wicked tricks on you. A fast paced, hectic rogue lite shooter that will challenge not only your game skills, but as well as your mind. Successfully complete Gotchu!'s games to win rewards, but if you don't.... well, you'll see.

This game is currently in development as a project in the Games and Interactive Media Minor capstone class (MI498) at Michigan State University.
