In this episode of The Sausage Factory, Chris O’Regan talks to Alan about his inspirations behind 0rbitalis and his other projects.
Physics and astronomy, these two strains of science explain how the universe is tied together via a very weak force known as gravity. Inspired by this fact Alan Zucconi has developed a game that examines the concept of gravitational pull in the form of 0rbitalis. This relaxing title requires the player to fire a probe into a simple 2 dimensional solar system, which has celestial bodies orbiting around a sun in a circular form. The aim of 0rbitalis is to have the probe fly for as long as possible before it gets shot out into deep space or collides with a planet and/or sun.
