That’s right, my thirteenth game (my eleventh for #onegameamonth) is called Who Says You Can’t Go to Space on a Hydrojet Pack?, and it’s about a person who tries to go to space on a hydrojet pack which has been modified to refuel mid-flight by eating clouds. Yep, the premise is as silly as the title. The #onegameamonth theme this month was “Clouds,” so that should help explain things a little.
The plan was to rest a bit after Bouncy Planet, which had involved a lot of long hours and late nights for me. So I came up with a simple game idea, and then I just kept making it more and more complicated because apparently I can’t take it easy anymore. That’s okay, though, because this game definitely took a lot less time to make. I started relatively late in the month, and I finished fairly early. Except then I decided it needed sound and music, since I had so much time left. My mom wrote the music (on short notice) again, just like A Snowball’s Chance. Also, you may notice the return of particle effects, courtesy of Richard’s Stardust engine, which he built for Bouncy Planet.
