Quick Progress Update
Current plans for Steam Release
Description
Release date: Released
You've landed on the lunar research station.
Too bad you *crash* landed.

Download the free demo[don-whitaker.itch.io] for Windows, OS X, and Linux

Outwit gravity. Race the clock. Explore new worlds.

This is a gravity-based arcade game inspired by classics like Lunar Lander and Space Taxi. You'll pilot your craft from pad to pad trying to beat your best time – then flirt with that fine line between speed and control. If you’re brave enough to try Hard Mode you’ll be flopping around like a QWOPy, low gravity turtle. With a little practice you’ll be zippin' around doin' barrel rolls.

You’ll see sites from the cutting edge of fractal mathematics, bizarre organic shapes, arcane archaeological digs, and all manner of WTFderful alien vistas. Each level is a hand-crafted landscape that encourages the player to explore - and goof around! You can also pilot your lander in virtual reality with your Oculus Rift.

This free demo is 5 level taste of the game. The full version includes:

  • 24 levels to conquer and explore in Time Trial mode
  • 10 levels in Ring Runner mode - fly through custom courses
  • Time Trial, Fuel Miser and Ring Runner high scores
  • Full Oculus Rift support
  • Full (xbox 360) controller support
  • Hidden collectibles on every level
  • An hour of spacey, glitch-hop music - mp3's included!
  • Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux versions

Reviews:

“Crashed lander is really great! Play it with the autopilot off though”
Bennett Foddy, foddy.net

“...it's set in a wonderfully bizarre alien world that's absolutely worth exploring”
Konstantinos Dimopoulos, indiegames.com

“Crashing is just as rewarding as landing, which transforms Crashed Lander from an interesting experiment to a delightful low-gravity playground.”
Richard Moss, web.appstorm.net

I bought this a few months ago, it's great fun and especially immersive in the Oculus Rift- I like the fact it's a simple concept, but takes skill and good coordination to negotiate the environment. It's good to hear that if this gets the Greenlight (I've just voted Yes) I'll get a key for Steam too!

Cool, thanks for your support Twitch. Yeah, still stuck at about 50% of the way to top 100 and still hoping that Vavle opens the doors soon. It'll be crowded in there when they do, but at least devs can BE there. So many people pass by a game if it isn't on Steam.

BTW - everyone who buys the game on Itch.io will get a Steam Key when I finally do get in. Same goes for IndieGameStand, as long as you paid more than $1 on the PWYW dea there.

...I forgot to mention, great game! Must have for those of us with a DK2. I love the creativity, refreshing break from most art styles I am used too. Game mechanic is simple and fun. It is currently on for half price right now on itch.io, the demo was so good and mindblowing in the Rift I decided to pay extra.

I wonder why a VERY GOOD game like this, is still not on Steam, while the store is FULL of unplayable early-access shit.

Can't wait for Greenlight to disappear and for Steam to finally fully open doors, because obviously, the mechanism didn't work!"

^ THIS!!! - I just bought the game directly from the developer, but I would have rather bought it on Steam. Your loss Valve!

this game has really simple mechanics that are simple to pick up and an environment which you can easily lose youself in just exploring and having fun. And if this game doesn't end up getting on steam I will just buy it from the developer on their own site.
