Star Sky by Mårten Jonsson
This game is DRM-free
Creation of an experience, keeping it simple, straightforward and with a lingering atmosphere.
The point was always to create an interesting experience while staying with the bare minimums of what makes a game a game.
I only wanted a single mechanic, in this case walking forward or not, and the point was always to simply keep it that way, and build the game around it.
I am very pleased with the end-result, and I enjoy the fact that the simplicity of the game means that the game itself in no way detracts from the experience.
I can only hope that the players will understand it as well.
How to Play
Star Sky is a game about a man taking a midnight stroll. You take the same road as many times as you want, each time hopefully unlocking new encounters.
By exploring the landscape and paying attention to details you will discover all the different things that can happen.
Use your imagination to figure out the way to interact with the environment. Can you unlock the mysteries of the night?
Star Sky is not a game for everyone. It is a slow-paced game of exploring different choices.
There are secrets to unlock, and for those who make it to the end, there is alot of interesting things to reflect about.
It is also a peaceful experience and a game about enjoying the ambience the world around you can provide. Make the choices, watch what happens, unlock the secret.
