My Own Little Planet
‘My own little planet’ tells the story of a lost boy who is trapped on a dark and strange world. Fight your deepest fears and find an exit to this madness!
I met the developer of this oddly terrify 2D platformer after featuring The Far Frontier on Steam Greenlight. Lucas Parise noticed my post and asked me to check out his game that’s also on Steam Green light. Right away I loved the artistic spooky style of the game. So I figured I’d check it out and feature it today.
Since there is a free demo on Gamejolt I decided to do a quick gameplay vid for this article. Sorry about missing the stop recording hotkey at the end there. A little short on time today.
So there is a lot to say about this game. The first thing I love about the game is it cool creepy look. Lucus really did a good job with the spooky art. It reminds me of something Tim Burton would make. He also added a eerie original soundtrack that compliments the game nicely.
Now for game-play this game can get intense. There is a lot of timed running and jumping. When not running and jumping there is usually something deadly coming at you. The check points are spread kind of far apart, so dying can get pretty frustrating at times.
Its a very fast paced challenging game for sure. Dying and having to keep trying over and over again to memorize the stages can be daunting. Though when you finally clear an area you get that sweet sense of accomplishment like the platformers of the 90s.
The 5 levels on the demo provide quite a bit of game-play time. I’m very interested to see what other artistic levels and strange creatures the full game has in store.
I will say this game is tough, but overall I think its a work of art. Its fun, challenging, and nice to look at all at the same time. I give it a Very Positive rating.
