Sky Tourist - A Unique Space Adventure

Hello everyone, we are Three Legged Egg. We've been working on a new game, Sky Tourist, for about a year now, and we want to start getting the word out to everyone in the iOS community. We are getting close to the submission date for apple, so now is about the time to start sharing!

Sky Tourist is a puzzle… platformer? Not quite, but almost there, at least there are puzzles, but running and jumping are not part of the fun here! You play as Petey Pendant as he is propelled into the sky to collect cubelets, take pictures and solve puzzles to get to the end of his journey. All the while dangling from a rope!

You must control Petey as he swings about on a rope between two rockets. As he ascends through the various terrains of some peculiar planets, be wary of the many traps and hostile inhabitants trying to protect their planetary treasures from outsiders!

We'll be showing more images from Sky Tourist in the coming days, as well as video footage!

This games looks awesome. It's definitely on my watch list. I do think you put this thread in the wrong forum though.

The concept reminds me of one of the best physics puzzlers on iOS, Contre Jour.

Are the controls about moving the rockets on the left and right while Petey Pendant is on freefall while attached to the rope?

Curious, will there be a fuel limit on the rockets?

Thanks everyone for the kind words! It is much appreciated and is a moral booster for the final development days we need to get through.

Yes, this is about what the controls are.

The rockets do not have a fuel capacity, as there are a lot of puzzles in the game as you are flying about. We wanted to let the player have enough time to solve the puzzles and not worry about their fuel.

Another world

We said we would share more soon about Sky Tourist, and here we are to deliver

In this casino world, you will have to avoid gangster and their traps, all the while trying to curb your gambling addiction on the slots!

Gameplay footage is finally here!

We have been working hard on getting a good gameplay video to everyone. Its been rough working on the game and making something presentable, but we managed.

Now we can show you the first world, Plumia, in action! You must be warry of the locals when traveling in this planet. Poison darts are the favorite tool to keep intruders at bay, as well as giants that will throw rocks on your head!

Plumia Screens

We wanted to follow-up with yesterdays post with some stills of planet Plumia. Some people are not able to view videos at certain times, or would just like to take a closer look, so we hope this helps!

Be careful, poison darts will knock you off your rope and you'll have to start from your latest checkpoint!

It seems the locals have built some totems to their gods...

Spike traps and flying boulders?! This doesn't look good...

These sticks seem a bit unstable...
