Unknown Orbit - Jump and Fly Around a Surreal Planetary System as a Comet

London, UK - December 4, 2012 - Exbleative has released its first game, Unknown Orbit for iPhone and iPad on the App Store. Jump, float and fly around a surreal planetary system as a comet. Players must use the planet’s hills and valleys to launch into deep space and hurtle through sparkling firefly clouds to reach the orbiting moons and beyond.

Space out and enter a state of flow with an entrancing vibe and soundtrack by Rhys Lindsay. Perfect the smoothest landings and highest jumps, and glide across a strange orbital landscape.

Two nearby stars melt away the player's ice core, so they must absorb snowballs that are scattered around the environment to prolong their life.

String together moves to gain an ever increasing and limitless point combo, then compete with friends on the GameCenter Leaderboard.

"Throughout development, I was highly focussed on creating a very surreal vibe, in terms of visuals, music and sound. I wanted a smooth, flowing and strange game that drew you into a unique little world." explained Jay Weston of Exbleative.

Development of Unknown Orbit was somewhat unique, as it was created using a visual scripting solution called Playmaker (for Unity3d), which looks like a flowchart editor. Playmaker allowed Jay, a creative with no programming skills, to create Unknown Orbit with almost no coding whatsoever.
