A Game of Survival

Survival of the Brightest is a puzzle game where you take on the role of a firefly in a bug jar. In order to find your way out, you must act as the brightest bug in the jar. The player is attempting to both outlive the other bugs and escape from the jar, taking on the idea of “survival of the fittest.”

As the player moves around the jar, their first worry is not touching the other bugs. Over time, the player tries to figure out what the best strategy is to both avoid collision yet still be able to reach the hole after the butterfly is released and chasing them. Due to the randomness of some of the bugs’ movements, there is no absolute order of movement to succeed.
