The Story

Once upon a time there was an alien, traveling outer-space and doing its thing. Suddenly his spaceship was pulled strongly towards one of the planets. In all his powers he tried to pull up, but the he couldn’t prevent the inevitable from happening...

Then it went all black. After a while he wakes up by a voice coming from the spaceship. “Error. Error. Error.”

After an inspection the spaceship body appears to be in reasonable state but he found the engine to be completely destroyed. After searching the entire planet, all he found was the cause of his crash: a giant magnet. It was pulling all metal to the planet, including the spaceship.

“But wait a minute. What would happen if I would use that...?”

Quotes

Ricardo: ”An Alien with a Magnet is the first project where I have the opportunity to show a bit more of my imagination and humor, graphic- and story wise. Also I am really glad I can work with Lukas, because of his experience in the gaming industry and also his knowledge of development in Unity. Thanks to that, this game will also be my first steps on other platforms besides iOS”

Lukas: ”After leaving my day job, this is what Rejected Games should be all about: creating fun and crazy games, like An Alien with a Magnet. I am glad to have met Ricardo, he truly is a brilliant artist with an amazing eye for characters. Combining his ideas together with my vision, caused us to get to a point to where we sat down and brainstormed for a new game. In those brainstorms we came up with a lot of fresh ideas and one of them was this concept that has a lot of potential and led us to An Alien with a Magnet. “
