One Game A Month: Old Nelty
As foreshadowed a couple of days ago, I’m planning to complete a new game next month as part of one game a month.
What’s the new game about? Well…
The last hope for humanity lies with the tired and rusting space freighter Old Nelty that, until recently, was considered decommissioned. (For good reason.) She has no on board weaponry and she can’t turn left, but regardless of that, now she must save the cosmos!
Intergalactic space squid terrorize the universe blocking all trade routes and preventing all-important supplies from reaching their destinations.
Only Old Nelty can defeat the squidly hordes and carry the supplies safely to their respective destinations. But how can she defeat the squids with no weapons?
By spinning around them so fast that their heads explode.
Old Nelty (Working Title), is a…. puzzle game? Based around the perilous task of orbiting spacesquid with a ship that can only turn right. Orbiting one is easy enough, but with each squid you orbit you get faster and you’ll need to make sure you remember to dodge those asteroids on the way!
One thing I’m not sure about is the name, what do you think? Does anyone out there have a better name for a ship? Somebody already suggested Old Melty as an alternative… In which case they probably shouldn’t have parked that close to a star….
