Pitch: Prison Break Top Down Shooter with Risk/Reward mechanics

Top down shooter with squirrel, room/power mechanic.

Open question: How can I test the room/power mechanic?

Possible font choice?

* MVP Notions
** Power/Room
Instead of Power/Rooms, it's "Choose X rooms to for enemies to spawn in",
and the cost of death is having the doors of the room you died in close
Instead of generators, they're "fungal fabricators", and have to leech resources from enemy deaths.
** Resources
Each resource room starts out with a group of enemies that give that resource
and can be "opened" to continuously spawn enemies that drop that resource
The longer a room is open, however, the more dangerous the enemies get.
