Navigator is an action-puzzle game being developed for the PC, Xbox 360 and Windows Phone 7 platforms. Navigator mixes platformer elements with classic block puzzle elements to create a unique puzzle experience.

In Navigator, blocks are fired from the top of the screen from a Block Cannon into a 10x15 playing field in four different colors: red, blue, green, and yellow. Matching 4 colors or more will create a "cluster" which will clear that portion of the field. 
Depending on the placement of the player's blocks, destroying a cluster can set off a chain of clusters that duplicate the amount of points the player gets.

While controlling the Block Cannon, the player is also controlling a small avatar in the playing field, that the player must move around, avoiding the Punishment Area (top of the field) by using the character's unique abilities to avoid hazards and keep themselves alive.
When the player reaches the top of the playing field, the game is over.

Navigator encourages cooperation, as every gameplay mode can be played cooperatively with 2 players. In cooperative 2-player games, one player controls the Block Cannon, and the second player controls the player character.

C'mon! You didn't really think that was it, did you?! There's no way we were going to end this game on a single release of Navigator! I'm a genius, give me some credit here!


Alright, alright. So I know that the lab_build release could've gone better. A lot better. But I'm a very busy scientist! I have a life too, you know! It's very easy to get caught up with other things, especially if you're trying to make a living!. Blame capitalism, not the little ones like me!

But! I am a lady of my words! I promised you folks updates, and that's exactly what I'm gonna give you! No matter what! Never settle for less!


Now yes, I know the lab_build of Navigator is very incomplete compared to what was originally planned. And maybe the actual release itself was a bit underwhelming... ...but I'm here to fix that! Not just for myself, but for YOU! We both benefit! Isn't that exciting?!

Yikes, I'm starting to get ahead of even myself here! Let me turn it down real quick, so we're all on the same page.



So! The good stuff! Okay.
What I'm going to be doing over the next few days is rebuilding the Navigator Function System, the engine you've been playing the game on for the last year. Consider this a massive overhaul!
Using brand-new, multiplatform code, I'm going to rebuild the NFS from scratch and create an overall greater experience! With the rebuilt systems, I'll be able to make Navigator better than ever! It'll be easier to improve, and it'll be much easier to create brand new content!


Now, of course, it may take a while before I have something to show you lovely bunch! But I promise you, it definitely won't take a year this time! Patience, and it shall come to you when you least expect it!

Now, before I go... remember! Even though we're working on the overhaul, you can still buy and play Navigator: lab_build right here on Desura! It's only $4.99, it's a fun game, and you'll be supporting my crew and I in continuing to support and improve the game! You'll get enrolled in the new engine and its updates automatically, which means you won't miss anything when I update Navigator!



That's all for now... but I thank all of you who stuck around for your continued support!

No Linux version? That's a shame, as I'd probably buy this otherwise.

Hey guys, competitive mode is now functional! However, attacking is a little OP right now, so we're aiming to fix that.

Once we get approved on Desura, we may start uploading sooner builds until the full game releases. Look forward to more news!

Hey folks. I'm beginning my move today into my new apartments and will be offline for a few days. When I return there should most likely be more Navigator news to be posted!

Keep an eye out and show the public beta to everyone!
