The Project

Planetes was developed over the course of 4 months as a class project for DIG 4275 at the University of Central Florida. The class was assigned to develop a game pertaining to the theme of `Explore`, and we as a team interpreted that as a lonely adventure through space, exploring several planets at a leisurely pace. We hope we were able to successfully capture the essence of Exploration with this project, and hope you enjoy your time with Planetes.

Very short game with few laggy and bugs, but overall a nice game. I made a video if someone is interested. 

the controls are way to sloppy

Nice game I really liked it!
