Two astronauts come back to their planet to bring a flower specimen to restore biodiversity. Unfortunately, their spaceship was cut in half in an accident. Separated on the two parts of the ship, their mission is to keep the ship running for as long as possible, repairing consoles, extinguishing fires, and keeping the flower safe and hydrated.
Going Home is a short 2-player coop game about making quick and efficient decisions to manage your time and the gradual degradation of the ship.
Teamwork is essential, as tools are limited, and players will need to pass them around in zero gravity.
Two players are required to play
You can play with either a keyboard and a controler, or two controlers.
WASD/ZQSD/arrow keys to move
H to pick or drop an item
J to use the held item
hold K to prepare a throw, release to throw your held item
Controler (XBOX, should be compatible with PS4 controlers aswell, but not tested)
Left stick to move around
"A" to pick or drop an item
"X" to use the held item
hold "Y" to prepare a throw, release "Y" to actually throw it
The game is lost when the flower completely withers.
Use the wrench on broken consoles to repair them
Use the extinguisher to put out fires that come out of broken consoles
Fill the watercan on the fountain, then use it on the flower to keep it hydrated
There is no actual win condition, you need to survive for as long as possible
Good luck, and enjoy :)
Everything was made under GameMaker Studio from scratch, even the sprites in the built-in sprite editor.
Extract the .zip and run the .exe
Simple as that
