It all starts on paper.

Not long ago I sat down and sketched out an idea about a little hero that sets off to rescue his teammates in space. This is one of the few times that a ‘complete picture’ of a game has been so clear to me and I believe I can argue progress has been a reflection of that.

Baring the ‘new game’ feeling, there is a very clear path for this game over the next many months with a strong schedule and focus on end result.  So here is a breakdown of Super Galaxy Boy and what to expect as player:

  • Challenging gravity platformer puzzles, hidden worlds and secrets strewn across 80+ levels.
  • Mario style level/world progression zones.
  • Utility Raygun that not only kills bad guys but alters the physics of the world around you! Approach challenges in your own way!
  • Troublesome loot dropping enemies and ridiculous boss fights.
  • Humorous NPC interactions and animations.
  • Rainbows.

Super Galaxy Boy is currently in development for PC. I will continue to update this blog (almost) daily with updates on design progression as well as discussions on the various design philosophies behind the game.
