(Permadeath) (Simulation) The Aurora Wager
« on: April 07, 2013, 20:02:14 »
The Aurora Wager is basically a one life try in going to the north pole... on a hot air balloon... with wind... and complete catastrophe. The game was made in 7 days and it's very impressive. It's amazingly hard and actually feels like a realistic simulation. I have not beaten it, but I'm trying! The game gives you the hot air balloon, then it gives you the tools to get it going, it gives you a compass to see where north is, and the game actually has some slight exploration. Like stated on the game's website (a blog) the game is inspired by:
- Roguelikes
- Proteus
- Kerbal Space Program
- Dear Esther
- Last Exile
- Steamboy
- Minecraft
So basically it's pure awesome.
If you wanna give the game a try, and watch Mr. Dan (Nerdcubed) try to solve the game, go here: http://volo-airsport.net/blog/2013/04/nerdcubed-plays-the-aurora-wager/

And that's it.
Goodbye
