A while ago my friend Niklas Åkerblad (“Nicke” for short) and I decided to do a little game project together, kinda just for fun (and to see how well we could work together). We decided to work with the iPhone and iPod Touch since it seemed neat and a good fit for our small idea. Of course it still took way longer than we thought to get it done — game development never fails to surprise you… Anyway, it’s been a really nice experience to work together and now we’re finally starting to wrap things up. Exactly when the game will be out is hard to say since Apple has to approve it for the App Store but it shouldn’t take too long. Until then, here’s a little trailer:
The art (which is all watercolor) and music is made by Niklas while I have been doing the programming and game design. The overall concept is something we’ve worked very much together on though. In short the game is about exploring space to find art, while at the same time learning how to fly around in a graceful way. There isn’t any scoring system or way to lose, instead it’s all about self improvement and judging your own performance. I hope you will find it as much fun as we do!
