This game as done for th Global Game Jam and it was done in 48 hours by MiniBoss and friends!
The theme this year was extinction.
This game is about collecting people, animals, plants and resources from planet to planet while running from the sun, that has turned into a red giant and will became a supernova. The gameplay is a fast paced platform game where you have to choose which resources you will carry in your journey.
Here's the story of our game:
12:07:12.0128 DAY 12809 AFTER CRYOEXODUS
Log for ARK-II, mission 2301.A, written by captain-in-charge, NoahX02.
Mission begins shortly.
All preparations are complete.
Status report. NoahX01: MIA as of the last hour.
Storage system OK ready to receive specimens
Early arrival of the sun's thermatmosphere will render most of the remaining life in the system extinct before our current plan can be executed.
It is for that reason that we have ultimately agreed upon adopting plan C to mission 2301, at our own expense and risk. That plan does not exist in your archives. It is as follows:
PLANETARY PLAN C
- ARK-II follows the planetary route of plan A;
- Landing begins a minute-long search mission, instead of the 3 hours in A;
- NoahX units to be deployed one at a time to guarantee success;
- ARK-II will depart on time regardless of deployed NoahX units;
- After U-403, ARK-II enters phase 2, and launches to Terranova.
All NoahX units have agreed on this, and are willing to make the sacrifice.
We will now transfer to you all control of the NoAH units in ARK-II.
All our hope are belong to you.
It begins now.
