Journey to the Center of the Sun

You wake from a vivid dream with a new purpose in life…to be the first human ever to fly a rocket into the sun. The combination of wacky dialogue and gloomy hand-painted art creates a very unusual feel.

    This is brilliant! I love how you have remember who you spoke to and go back to them when the time is right. It really encouraged me to pay attention to the game and use my memory. It was well designed and simple enough to understand. I can’t wait for the next installment, please let me know when it’s ready šŸ™‚

    • Thanks for playing! This was mostly a prototype of this aesthetic idea.

      I’m definitely going to do a Part 2 in the next few months. I’m also kicking around the idea of doing a larger commercial game with this art style (no specific plans yet).

        I can’t wait! šŸ™‚

    I really enjoyed this little game! It is tiny, but the graphics, the atmosphere, the special style sucked me in! Any news on the next part? šŸ™‚

    • Oliver, thanks for playing, and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I actually planned to make part 2 this month…I sketched out some stuff on paper…but lately my asthma has been limiting the amount of time I can spend at the keyboard. So instead I decided to make an even smaller game (it’s a sim about trying to make games while dealing with asthma). That one should be done in the week or so. I’m hoping to make Center of the Sun 2 sometime in the next few months, but I don’t have a definite timeframe.
