Last Horizon - Minimal-esque Space Adventure By Pixeljam (iOS / Android)

Hello all,

Miles @ Pixeljam here, with some info about our upcoming iOS / Android game LAST HORIZON.


Youtube link | Pop Up


You play as the last remaining human on Earth, searching for a new home... collecting terraforming resources from various planets to create a fertile and harmonious world.

This is a bit of a departure for us at Pixeljam, as we've been making pixel-flavored games for like 100 years now. But you know, change is good

Some screenshots:







The game features procedurally generated planets and arrangements of said planets. Some examples:





Controls are standard rotate / thrust... the main mechanic is proper navigation and landing on various planets, avoiding space debris, comets, asteroids, hostile alien life, etc.

More info when we launch, which is November 19th!

Looks great. Can you interact with the planet in any way? I mean, can you for example get off the spaceship and walk on the planets surface? Also, as I always ask, what are the minimum iOS/device for this to work?

Nope, just land. That option was on the table, but it didn't make it into the final game, mainly to keep scope reasonable. Because of course if you can walk around, then you need things to interact with, and then the game is a platformer, and then....

BTW, I streamed the game last night, do check out the replay of it to see how the game plays.

I gave three and half stars to your favorite game.

Thanks. What about minimum iOS/device?
