The Little Ship

The story of a little ship that went on a big journey.

Made on Train Jam 2018, with the theme of “odyssey.” Originally for an alternative controller made from found objects (cough… trash…) aboard the train, we optimized controls to be playable with just a keyboard. It was a wonderful experience to develop this game while staring outside at the incredible views from the California Zephyr.

The design is simple and soothing, inspired by our approach to the experience as a “chill jam.” Our team allowed ourselves to embrace the beautiful time on the train while still creating something small and pleasant for players to enjoy.
