From Planet to Dwarf and Back Again!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
IMPORTANT: please use 1024 x 768 as resolution. I did not have time to worry about different resolutions. Sorry.
The game is based on a stupid idea and is not really serious (hence the title). I thought of Pluto, the dwarf planet, when I read the jam theme and then thought of the classifications of mini planets. (Pluto is not considered a planet because there are objects in its orbit.) There are actually people who campaign for Pluto being re-elevated to planet status again, so the joke of someone trying to "help" the planet is not entirely far-fetched.
I didn't have time to include all the ideas I had but I wanted to turn it in for the jam. It works, but I'll definitely revisit it as soon as I can.
All images are from NASA's official website, which is a fascinating place that hopefully gets some advertising this way. (www.nasa.gov) Space looks really cool.
Navigation is a bit difficult, but hey, it's in space. :-)
In hindsight, I published the game too early. A lot of the stuff that is necessary and that would improve it is still not finished. Unfortunately, I have a lot to do at work right now, so I have decided to put the project on hold for some time.
It's a zip file. I hope it works with all systems. Enjoy!
