Star Escape is a difficult-but-fun intense sidescrolling platformer! Jump from planet to planet across Star Systems from all over the universe, and avoid the deadly pull of the star’s gravity!
Coming to iOS, Android, PC, and Mac.
You play as Ihp, a dinosaur generally happy about being alive, and wanting to keep it that way. Unfortunately for him, his home is destroyed when he’s visited by robots from the distant future. These robots have been tasked with finding new exhibitions for zoos in their time, and Ihp is next on their list! However, the robots aren’t the most competent at their job, and accidentally break the space-time continuum, starting the collapse of many Star Systems. Accompanied by his new robot “friends”, Ihp is now off on a fast-paced adventure, trying to stay alive against all odds and find a new home.
The game’s objective is simple: escape the star by jumping from planet to planet, and get the highest score you can.
To help him along the way, Ihp can use items, activate powerups, and get some help from his robot buddies. Ihp will also collect Dark Matter, which can be used to buy cool new items and upgrades, as well as cosmetics and other characters.
As our first solo project, we’ve been spending a lot of time designing the game from the ground up to be challenging but fair. We’ve learnt a lot from our experience with Hopper, and have put those lessons to good use. We’ve also tried to give the game some real personality, with a fun little story and some memorable characters.
We’re really looking forward to hearing your thoughts, and can’t wait to get the game ready for you to play!
