A downloadable game

You’re a crew of monkeys. You’re miserable, for various reasons. But you’ve somehow ended up on a spaceship, and now it looks like you’re in control. Or at least nobody else seems to be controlling it, so it’s yours now, right?

The entire galaxy is open to you! You have a SPACESHIP – do something fun with it!

Too bad someone wants to stop you. Someone who probably knows a lot more about space than you do, and will do terrible things to keep you from reaching your destination. Why? Who knows? You’re just monkeys, you didn’t ask for any of this. But tell that to the unfeeling void of space.

You might want to learn to use that laser cannon.

This is a silly Lasers & Feelings hack I made for the Transformed Titles Jam. When a neural network hands you a title that sounds like a parody of every game on itch.io, you kind of have to write it.

Comes in PDF form, printable as a trifold pamphlet, a web page, and epub & kindle formats for your e-reader.

This game is free. I refuse to charge anyone for an untested game jam project.
