Saving The Galaxy One Plant At A Time The Nudist’s Way
By Julie Morley
While parading around in your naked glory, I add.
That’s right, a cosmonaut, equipped with a jetpack and laser blaster of mayhem, planting trees on planets in a barren galaxy without any clothing on whatsoever. How the heck is this guy even surviving? Where did his clothes even go? He must be freezing! It seems like he’s far from a sun of any sort!
I just don’t understand – how’s he even maintaining a livable body temperature.
It’s a conspiracy. A game conspiracy. And this is Cosmochoria!
But that is that, a naked cosmonaut who is passionate about bringing life to planets all across the galaxy. We don’t know his origins just yet but later on the game it will be revealed as with more lore. You’re naked, you’re desperate to put life on other planets, and there are aliens who just aren’t having it.
In Cosmochoria, our clothes-less character is stuck on a miscellaneous planet that just is lacking in life. The game is designed almost as a side-scroller except you’re just moving in a circle. The camera will just move around the planet as the character is. The objective is clear, become the gardener of the planet you’re currently occupying and ward off any aliens who come your way.
For some reason, aliens do not want life to be regenerated in the dying galaxy and are willing to combat you with everything they’ve got. But don’t lose faith, you’re able to take them down with your handy dandy laser. And if that’s not enough, you can rely on some lovely upgrades to be of assistance.
Once your plant matures fully, you’ll receive more seeds to continue planting. When the aliens are fended off, you’ll gain not only increase your score by gain crystals. Even if you die in your current game, said crystals will transfer over to the following game. When the entire planet’s heart meter fills up completely is when you know you’ve done your job, you’ve restored the planet, you naked hero, you.
At this point, all that is left to do is use your jet pack to fly out of the planet’s gravitational pull area and explore the realms of space, searching for another vacant planet to bring life to. When you find one, start the process all over. But be warned, the more planets you help along the way, the tougher the aliens fighting you will be. The battles are more intense and aggressive.
Which is where those phenomenal upgrades come in handy. Along the way, you can purchase upgrades such a defense system that shoots down aliens, a brutal laser that puts your old one to shame and health upgrades. Considering that the latter part of the game will increase in difficulty, stock up. Don’t take this challenge lightly.
Right now the Cosmochoria Alpha is linked on the Kickstarter page and it really shapes the idea of the finalized game.
The campaign ends May 1st and for every backer the developer, Nate Schmold, will plant a tree!
