I just finished up the first demo version of Planeta. It is a space puzzle game where you are trying to get back to his home planet.
How the game came about
I was assigned a project in my technology class to design a video game. I was also taking AP Physics 1 at the same time, so I decided to try to make a game that had to do with physics and space.
Initially, I tried to model the game off of real world gravitation physics. Two weeks before the game demo, I pivoted that game mechanic towards having fixed gravitational fields.
I also used to play Mario Galaxy when I was very young, so I decided I should make something that had to do with jumping from planet to planet.
- Gravitational Planets
- Planetary Hopping
- Getting sucked into blackholes
- More to come!
What I used to build the game.
Well, I plan on updating and improving the game over the next month or so, and plan out a 1.0 launch.
Feedback is also greatly appreciated as it will help improve the game.
