The history of 60 Seconds
Originally, 60 Seconds! was not planned as a standalone game. When the creators started the development, back in 2013, they intended to experiment with several new things for the benefit of other projects that they had in the works at the time. Most importantly to them, it was supposed to be a proving ground for using the Unity engine in their future games.
The idea behind 60 Seconds! was relatively simple and yet largely unexplored by the post-apocalyptic genre – what if a game about surviving the apocalypse would start just before the events that caused it. One minute before an atomic bomb obliterates your 1950s suburban neighborhood, to be exact. With only 60 seconds to spare before the impending doom, the player was expected to quickly navigate their house and make rapid choices about which family members to rescue and what supplies to take with them to the fallout shelter. The gameplay was concluded with a story about the family’s survival after the bombing, generated on the basis of player’s decisions.
At the time it was not clear if this was the right way to proceed. With key team members busy at their full-time jobs, it left the creators very little room to maneuver in case the project did not work out. As it turned out, the game got released in 2015.
