In this comical arcade game adaptation of the The Little Prince novella, you play as the grown up prince. Your mission is to protect your beloved rose from incoming threat. Kick, grab, and throw wild sheep into the nearest volcano. Also, save the planet B-612 from an overgrowth of baobab trees by kicking them down as they relentlessly try to grow. By doing so, earn points and build a high score.

This prototype was developed as a student game adaptation project at the Cologne Game Lab.

Quite the departure from the book! Great presentation and style; it really stands out to me as having really cohesive art, sound, and gameplay.

Just a thought but I didn't feel too invested in racking up points once I got the hang of the mechanics. Maybe some sort of win condition or timer or diffuculty ramp would help with player investment?

Thanks for the feedback!

I agree, its lacking in terms of player investment. The progression system needs to be fleshed out. Also, I like the idea of there being a timer. Will hopefully incorporate these things in a future build.
