Help a naked cosmonaut strapped to a jetpack plant seeds to breathe life into a procedurally generated universe while confronting epic alien boss battles in 30/30’s uniquely stylized inaugural release, “Cosmochoria”. With a Kickstarter campaign launching the first week of April, featuring reward incentives like DRM-Free copies of the game & soundtrack, limited edition poster prints, t-shirts, hand-made plush toys of the Cosmochoria hero and actual trees planted via the Earth Day Network—30/30 hopes to fund the final stages of Cosmochoria’s development.
Intent on capturing the beauty and loneliness of space, Cosmochoria’s art boldly contrasts a child’s imagination with the cruel tranquility of the vacuum of space. The gameplay stems from an unwavering dedication to an era of simple game design, escalating challenges, gratifying upgrades and high-score competition. An original and ambient / electronic soundtrack accompanies sparse moments of peaceful exploration. Produced by a collaboration between Ilkae & Zebra, whose experimental sound has long been influenced by classic video games , and Mantrakid, the musical alter-ego of Nate Schmold, creator and illustrator behind Cosmochoria.
30/30 is the culmination of Nate’s creative ventures, each of which has strived to make the world a weirder place.
