Exciting Adventures in Clickable Space was originally conceived for 1-Bit Clicker Jam in April 2017. However, as the two-week deadline approached it became obvious that I wasn’t going to finish it in time. With only two days to go (equating to only a few hours of actual dev time), I quickly put together Clickshot II Turbo, just so as to have something to submit and not feel like a total failure. Still, I thought, I may as well finish Clickable Space. I mean, it should only take another week or so.
Cut to September 2017, and finally it’s in a state that I can reasonably call “done”.
If it’s not clear, the intention was to produce a very cut-down, low-resolution, mouse-only clone of 1984’s classic Elite. I think it’s not a bad attempt. For a two-week jam game. >Ahem<
