Total nuclear war has broken out. If humanity is annihilated, you, Doctor Strangelove, can retreat to your underground bunker full of beautiful women to create a new, better humanity. Unfortunately, everyone else in the War Room doesn't see it that way and is trying to get to the Red Telephone to stop the bombers.

Use the arrow keys to drive into people. Your semi-autonomous hand will grab them automatically, letting you drag them off-screen and dispose of them. Just make sure none of them get enough time on the phone to convince bomber command to stop the war...

what in the world is making this 40mb+ ? :V


The embedded JVM is making it 40 MB. The crash is... unfortunate. Lemme see if I can fix it.

OK, as I suspected it Works On My Machine. Are you running Windows 8 by any chance?

Interesting. I would be supremely grateful if you could run this debug version which will print a few lines of debug stuff right at the start. This lwjgl path problem is also present in Airships, and has been sorta the bane of my existence.

The debug version didn't output anything but I ran the exe as admin and it ran fine.

As for the game, well, can't go wrong with some Dr Strangelove.

IMHO you should stick with HTML5 for simple/quick LD games - makes deployment much much easier and brings the audience within reach of a single click.

Interesting to know running as admin works. Could I possibly as you to try this version which will just plain produce some alerts with the debug info? Basically, I'm trying to figure out whether, when you're running it in non-admin mode, it gets confused about paths or about permissions. (Obviously the latter is much more likely.)

To be clear, this isn't really about War Room, the tiny joke game. It's about Airships, the rather large game that gets launched by Steam where the run-as-admin workaround wouldn't work.
