Dev Diary

This game is created to attend a developer challenge held by a Taiwanese online forum. Participants of the challenge have to write articles about technology – which I chose the Unity game engine as my topic – daily for a 30 days streak. This game was made within the 30 days, and a daily diary had been kept during the project.


Here is the link to the dev diary (in Chinese).

Description

Tall as the Sky is a simple hand drawn 2D portrait shooting game, which player have to control the character to avoid or shoot falling objects so that the character could grow as tall as the sky. The game is inspired by the Chinese song 和天一樣高 by 張雨生.

“I WANNA BE AS TALL AS THE SKY…I WANNA BE AS TALL AS THE SKY…” These lyrics are like curses, making Their limbs grow and grow, up through the clouds and into the stars. An unknown journey thus began…
