The Aurora Wager is a game created for the 7 Day Rogue Like event.
The game is about you (Jebe) and your buddy (Frits), your arch nemesis (Frederik), and your wager to make it to the North Pole first. By hot air balloon, naturally!
We had to cut a boatload of features to get the download up in time, but we think this is the most minimal version of the game that’s fun to play.
We were inspired by lots of things! The biggest and most direct influences are:
– Kerbal Space Program
– Dear Esther
– Last Exile
– Music we played (Kettel, Emeralds, Ochre, Biosphere, Deru, more)

Grappling hook can reel in items (or the ship) by pressing the pickup button once latched.
(We know the controls are a bit confusing at the moment (when to press use or pickup) and are working on it. Also, we’re adding a sprint button.)
