Description

Sky’s Isles is a hand drawn, watercolor 2D adventure platformer shooter in a world composed of floating little islands. You play as a little person in search of others like him. At your disposal, you’ll have your trusty bow, and a hot air balloon to fly between isles. Gameplay is a seamless mix between platforming sections, composed of careful but exciting jumping and shooting,  and hot air balloon flights through a beautiful world in the sky.

History

This game was made in a month for the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest, organized by RPG Maker and Humble. The idea behind Sky’s Isles was to make a 2D platforming game that took the exploration aspects of games like Wind Waker: a big world composed of many levels (islands), separated by a space that’s mostly empty (the sea in WW, the sky in Sky’s Isles) and traversed in a simple but charming way (talking boat, hot air balloon).  It was a fun (and intense) month, and I’m proud of the final result. The last few days definitely left a few scars (particularly when there was a blackout just as I was trying to upload my game… half an hour before the deadline shudders), but I learnt a lot from the experience.
