A downloadable game for Windows

Young Bobo is a space fanatic and in his suburban 1980's bedroom, he has managed to fully assemble his birthday present, A Glenn Chandler Genesis Planet Kit! Feeding ingredients into the machine should allow him the chance to create his own little world. What could possibly go wrong?

Based on the theme A Small World and heavily inspired by a short story I read when I was very young that has stayed with me my entire life. Bobo's Star by Glen Chandler.

Having finished this game and thought about it a lot, I am very proud of it and happy with the end product… but I don't think anyone is going to enjoy it as much as me. I made it very difficult to understand how to "win" and most people will see the fail condition and give up. Which is kinda exactly what I wanted because it fits with the subject material and inspiration. However, if anyone DOES stick with it and manage to make a planet, the reward, I hope, should feel like quite the achievement. Honestly, if you had to make a planet in a vacuum chamber, it WOULD be very difficult.

I am not expecting high scores for FUN on this one! But I stick by it and am really happy that I made it. I hope you at least are mildly amused by the game if you don't enjoy it. Thank you for playing!

It's too bad that this entry didn't got more votes in the Ludum Dare 38, because in my opinion it was a fantastic game! It was a delight to figure out how my world would react to the different objects. <3 Also, all the objects and the whole environment looked absolutely stunning. A great usage of the Unreal engine, it's hard to find such great gems made in this engine nowadays! Happily I included your game in one of our compilation articles about the Ludum Dare 38 as well as in one of our showcase videos. :) Keep up the great work. <3

Best wishes,

Your Unreal skills continue to impress me, great entry. Oh and look at the kids poster on their wall, would that happen to be the famous 'Space Pow Collins'?
