Short Story

In Space: It’s Trying to Kill You! the player is stranded in the void of space with nothing but a few pieces of equipment to keep them alive. Their mission is to return to their ship, dodging deadly creatures and events along the way.


Space: It’s Trying to Kill You! is a reskin of another game we created at Mantis Digital Arts called Wild Forest, which was developed for Panasonic’s Home Team app. The reskin was fairly easy in that the game functions the same way, but all of the art, characters, creatures, and equipment had to be updated.

I started the reskin by defining the visual style and then got to work creating the new images. I kept to a limited blue, black and white color palette, made use of a lot of transparency, and selected fonts that helped give the game a space-age feel.
