This is a game idea that has been floating around my head for 20 years or so. I’m a triple AAA dev but had a couple of weeks off between jobs. I decided to finally make this as a short personal game jam. I’m pretty happy with the results- obviously given it’s just me and the timescale a lot is still a bit rough around the edges.
This is very much early access. Some things will be improved for the final game - particularly the voice acting I see as placeholder (It's me! - and I’m no actor). Once the game is finished I’d like to employ someone really talented to really bring the Captain to life. I’ve only got about the first 20-30 minutes or so of gameplay done. I’d expect this to be a quarter of the final game / experience. This is reflected in the cheap price for the moment!
The game works well in non VR 3rd person camera and VR.
I’m loving this as a VR experience however if you are playing in VR I’d describe it as “Medium” comfort level. It starts pretty rough, but I’ve tried to keep decent smooth periods between higher action (and motion) moments. However…if you are sensitive, you might just get seasick, if so unplug and fire it up again without VR. Also its control pad only for the moment (no touch controller etc) support. I hope to add that later - although the pad does work well for the interface that you need to pilot the pod touch is just more involved.
You can expect to crash land in your pod on a dark ocean planet. As you explore a story will unfold with full voiceover as you pilot your escape pod over dark waters unlock the secrets of the planet.
If you enjoy it, please leave me some encouragement and also let me know whether you are enjoying playing VR / 3rd person. I could do with deciding whether to focus it mainly as a VR experience or not.
Thanks for playing and good luck out there, Captain.
