2ND PLACE IN YOYOGAMES GMS2 BETAJAM#2

"A simple, tried and tested concept well executed. Jump higher and higher until you can escape the gravitational pull of the planet. Some fun dialogue in this one to break up the levels and feed the feeling of progress. Some great glitch-style effects as you combo more and more jumps and get progressively faster, almost as if you're losing control or breaking some sort of speed barrier!" -Shaun Spalding (@ShaunJS)


Magicians in space! .. or astronauts using magic..

You use magic to get outside the gravitational pull of planets!!

There's also a story involving something dark, sinister, and funny.

It's a thing. Try it out.
