We Make Small Games is proud to be included in the Indie Live Expo being held by Playism and Ryu's Office that takes place beginning tomorrow (June 6th) at 5 A.M MST. Because most of you will probably be asleep at that time, please find enclosed all of our announcements and media ahead of time.
EMBARGO: June 6th 7 AM MST / 9 AM EST
In our press kit you will find: Copies of our game's key, several screenshots, full press release in two languages, an HD version of our most recent trailer.
- Single player space shooter inspired by the coin-op games and early home console games of the 1980s.
- 4 missions - Beware obstacles and hazards lurk off screen!
- Synth-wave inspired soundtrack
- Colourful cast of characters who have enrolled in the D.R.O.O.L institute’s program to become licensed single-occupancy drone pilots.
- Visual Novel sections in-between playable missions that explore our pilot’s academic struggles, interpersonal relationships and personalities.
Things Are Really Starting To Heat Up
With today’s trailer release we’ve revealed footage from our game’s second module – which is set above a blazing hot sun. D.R.O.O.L candidates will find that their craft can only take so much heat from the sun before the ship’s integrity starts to fail. Candidates will have to keep their ship from falling apart while dodging oncoming meteors, solar flares and at the end of a stage a large boss ship that can warp around!
Meet Our First Pilot
Players will be able to chose between 4 different playable pilots who will appear during “modules” (missions) while piloting the titular Tiny Spaceship as well as during Visual Novel sections that take place between modules.
We’d like to introduce you to our first revealed pilot, Urani!
Age: 18 (Earth Years)
Urani comes from a small, flooded planet on the outer edges of the galaxy. As such, they are an exceptionally strong swimmer. Ever curious, they joined D.R.O.O.L in order to have an excuse to explore the universe with impunity.
Setting Course For Xbox One
A version of That Tiny Spaceship will be released for the Xbox One home console after the Windows PC version has launched on Steam. That Tiny Spaceship on Xbox One will be published via the Xbox Creators Program and will be accessible in that section of the Store once published. More details surrounding the console version of That Tiny Spaceship will be revealed at a later date.
Regarding Release Platforms
When we originally announced That Tiny Spaceship back in May 2018 we specifically announced two platforms in addition to Windows based PC – Apple’s Mac OS and Open Source Linux as target platforms for the game.
Many things have changed in the previous two years – within the game’s scope and in the realm of desktop gaming as a whole. In regard to MacOS, the latest release has introduced changes to application development and troubleshooting any potential issues would require development resources that we do not have at this time. In regards to Linux support, the sheer number of distributions available could make official support very difficult.
Several third party options exist for players on MacOS and Linux to attempt to play our game. Abstraction layers and recent changes to some digital distribution system could potentially make That Tiny Spaceship playable on platforms that will not be officially supported.
Demo To Be Released In Summer 2020
A free playable demo containing the first Visual Novel section and the first introductory module will be made available on Steam later this summer. This will give players an introduction to That Tiny Spaceship and the game-play that we have to offer.
Minimum System Requirements (Revision)
Our Minimum System requirements have been slightly adjusted from the original specs announced when our Steam page went live. With the addition of the Visual Novel sections we’ll be putting quite a bit more HD art into the TTS than originally planned. To accommodate this the space requirements have been increased by 1GB.
