Sky Tourist is a puzzle… platformer? Not quite, but almost there, at least there are puzzles, but running and jumping are not part of the fun here! You play as Petey Pendant as he is propelled into the sky to collect cubelets, take pictures and solve puzzles to get to the end of his journey. All the while dangling from a rope! You must control Petey as he swings about on a rope between two rockets. As he ascends through the various terrains of some peculiar planets, be wary of the many traps and hostile inhabitants trying to protect their planetary treasures from outsiders!
We've been hard at work finishing up our game. At the same time, we've also been working on a nice video for everyone.

Finally, we have some video footage for everyone to see Sky Tourist in action! We are happy to introduce our first world, Plumia! Take a look!
Plumia is a lush jungle planet with many primitive locals. Just because their civilization is not so advanced, does not mean they don't want to protect what is theirs, so be careful! Their favorite tools to ward off unwanted guests are blow darts, as well as giants hurling stones throw the air! The native people have also set many traps, so look out for those pointy punji sticks and billowing boulders!
Some have been asking about how the controls work, and the video explains a lot of how it works. The only element that is not clear is the fact that the rockets will stop when you remove your thumbs from the screen. This allows the player to take some time to solve puzzle if need be, although don't take this for granted in the later levels!
We will be releasing more video footage of the other worlds in Sky Tourist as soon as we have them ready.
