Major new update! Solve the mysteries of the universe with potato power!
SPACEPLAN is an experimental piece of interaction based partly on a total misunderstanding of Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time. Use manual clicks and the passage of time to create and launch potato-based devices and probes from your nondescript satellite orbiting a mysterious planet. Unlock the mysteries of the galaxy or just kill some time in what the astrophysics community is calling the ‘best narrative sci-fi clicker game of all times’.
* Fifteen starchy items to unlock, create, and blast into the vacuum of space.
* Life affirming, silly story that will both captivate and help you kill time.
* Reveal the secrets of five different planets across two different realities.
* Banging soundtrack, as is customary in a narrative sci-fi clicker game.
This new version of SPACEPLAN is a rebuild of the entire game from the ground up to bring it in line with current design standards and make maintenance easier to better future proof it for future devices. Key changes are—
* Support for modern phone screens (full-screen and pixel density) as well as newer tech such as quality haptic feedback.
* Facelift across UI design and art style to bring the game more in line with the original vision, while maintaining the feel of the original release.
* A more efficient physics system to better handle more gravitational bodies at a lower cost, meaning better performance as gameplay progresses.
* Broadly improved systems to make the game’s UI feel more responsive.
* New music to further flesh out the much-loved OST by Logan Gabriel.
Ratings and Reviews
Build an astronomical number of potato-powered probes to investigate a mysterious planet in this compelling idle tapper.
Incremental games, simple right?
Typically incremental games feature text or basic graphics and nearly fully player driven. SPACEPLAN adds a relaxing and beautifully simplistic environment to take you through the silly but enjoyable story line. The ending makes all the effort worth it, providing an end goal not typical to the genre.
Playing through this relatively short game in this genre took me 3 days playing a few hours a day. The price tag had me worried but in the end I felt it was justified in the end to consume the atmosphere that I can tell Jake enjoyed crafting. I wish it was a bit longer, I am sure some amazingly creative ideas can come out of the plot and mechanics of the universe we are playing in and would love to see the app updated to include more replayability.
I would recommend this game for those who enjoy a 410-like art style and want a fresh take on an incremental game.
Your probably wondering why a clicker is $3, if it’s worth it, and if you should buy it. If you want the short answer, yes, but only if you like clickers. If want reasons why this game stands out (or if your one of the devs), then continue reading.
This is the best clicker I’ve played. It took me two days to beat it. I wish there was more. But after seeing the small team that worked on this, I was not disappointed. Yes, it has an end. Yes, it’s a clicker. Yes, it’s $3. But oh boy is it an experience. As you play and progress the story your AI companion says funny, witty things. The dialogue does not seem forced either, it all flows. My favorite part about the story is that the final step of your SPACEPLAN is to make it into a game for mobile devices, wich is a clever meta moment. Now, I don’t need to say much about the gameplay because it’s a clicker. But, unlike other clickers, this one has no micro transactions, no premium currency, it’s fun, and it actually is challenging at points. Challenging in the way that you gotta time something perfectly, not in the way that you have to grind. Lastly, the ending. I don’t want to spoil anything, but it is an amazing experience. I’m still on the fence on wether this should be $3 or not. But if the price drives you away, remember that you would probably spend more money on a worse clicker, with no ending or satisfaction. And if the money goes to one of my favorite game companies, it’s well worth it.
