JPO in SLC
Right click on it and save file as, unzip it on your computer, open the folder and double click the application file “JPO in SLC 5th Draft” and hope to all that’s magical and holy that it starts up. PC only. PC requirements: who knows! It works great on my laptop. Make sure your computer is up to date. I bet if you use Steam gaming service on your computer, you’ll have everything on board. Just make sure the game runs nice and fast, by maybe restarting your computer or something. It was made using the program “Shoot ‘Em Up Kit” made by Tall Studios. They are still working on the program, and I’m still working on the game. But it looks promising to me. Check them out! Their program is also available on Steam.
ABOUT THE GAME
It’s made in the Fine Art genre of “SHMUP”, which means free moving, 2D, gravity-less/inertia-less movement on the X and Y planes, moving background, flying against the opposing force, staying alive for distance or high score, on a likely suicide mission.
This one documents the struggles of Joshua Payne (the polar bear) as he led his nine-piece orchestra in Salt Lake City, playing pop-up shows at midnight every Friday night in the summers. The game in it’s current state only documents two such nights, but, like I said, Tall Studios is going to finish their program and then the game will be completed.
The game features recorded music of the Joshua Payne Orchestra.
Here’s some screenshots of the game:
