Ames – -ERCK is a challenging strategy/rogue-like in which you must manage a team of rovers to collect enough resources on distant planets and moons to initialize the Colonization Kit, and then move on to the next planet or moon.
-Uses actual photos of planet and moon surfaces from NASA! (AWESOME!)
-The NASA team impressed upon me how logistically challenging it is to deal with something as monumental as space travel. I wanted to make something where the player feels like they are given a very narrow window for success now that they are so far from home. Their starting options and knowledge are limited, but if they succeed, it’ll be all the sweeter.
(qualifier: I worked 2 additional hours on the project after I got home from the jam because I wanted to give the game some sense of longevity and progression.)
