Electricity is fickle in the Archipelago.  The storms make it easy to generate power, but the strong ones can cause near-complete blackouts.

Your job as the lighthouse keeper of Electric Island is to sail to the islands of the archipelago, connecting them with an emergency power line until proper service can be restored.


This game was made in ~48 hours for the Extra Credits Game Jam #4, with a theme of "Connect".


Controls:

WASD or Arrow Keys to move.

The Archipelago was made by Dylan Gedig and Sienna Blumstengel, with a whole lot of assets from https://www.kenney.nl/assets and audio from https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/audio/sound-fx/universal-sound-fx-17256

I really like the art and mood. Very calming and relaxing to play.

This is a beautiful game, it's pleasant and medatative and I really like zooming around the waters (going diagonally because it's faster)

The shrinking spool of wire is a very good touch, I was very pleased with it when I noticed it was shrinking as I drove away.

Thanks for your game!

Oops! Definitely forgot to normalize my movement. And I'm so glad someone noticed the cable spool :)

If you ever make edits and you do normalize movement, it might be nice to keep something that changes the pace. Maybe it's faster to head downwind... The changes in pace are good!

What a relaxing game! At first I was scared that there might be some big creature lurking in the waters but after playing for a while I just enjoyed the sound of the rain and the calm waters. The art style is so calming and beautiful, the way the islands light up and that light from the boat. This was very nice!

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Thank you for the feedback! We'll definitely look at submitting one of our games :)

Great! :)
