Starcrossed by Kind of a Big Deal was the Ones To Watch in association with Dare to be Digital Award winner at the 2013 Games Awards.
Showcasing the best in young games development and design talent, Starcrossed took this year's BAFTA Ones to Watch Award in association with Dare to be Digital.
Starcrossed by Kind of a Big Deal
Starcrossed is a whimsical 2D space platformer for Windows Phone 7. In Starcrossed you guide a crashlanded astronaut back to his home planet, using a rocket launcher to send him flying through space from one asteroid to another.
Gravity plays a pivotal role as the asteroids’ gravity fields will affect the astronaut’s movement. Temperature is also important: be careful not to expose the astronaut to the burning heat of the sun or the freezing outer space for too long at a time!
The nominees were also winners of Dare to be Digital
, a competition run as part of Dare ProtoPlay, Abertay University’s international student game design competition.
