Other Info: Android version
(It is a direct port of the original. The game was made with a typical pc/laptop set up in mind, but if android is your preferred platform you can grab the apk and sideload that!)
Dev note: I made this pretty much solo - which is quite the challenge! It's my 4th game jam, marking around 12 months since my first released project.
What is it about and why should I play it? Oh, these bits are hard, but I feel like I should say something as I didn't want to do a synopsis!! There is some focus on atmosphere, which I think the audio really adds to, I always try to make audio an important factor in any multimedia project! The music by Urban Fox together with the occasional voiced parts by Bluebird Plays are integral to this and I can't thank them both enough for helping out. As for the story, it does have sci-fi and fantasy elements, I like a good sci-fi short with some ambiguous elements, so I'm sure that has rubbed off on me in terms of what I make! OK I hope that's enough Oh, and I haven't archived the code, so feel free to have a poke about if there is anything that interests you (sorry it's messy in parts)!
Feedback of any kind is always appreciated (here or twitter is fine!). Oh, and feel free to ask questions.
If you have played any of my past games, do you think this is any better really? If so, why!? :'D
