Pineshore Planet, a short and sweet mini-planetary puzzler made for the Ludum Dare 38, has you helping out all of the citizens of a small world with their odd little problems!
You have been called to this world by the mayor. He has a major problem – all of his citizens have been having issues that he cannot solve. It is up to you to figure out what each person needs and provide them with that thing to fix their issue.
This world is quite small, so making your way around it doesn’t take much time. Each of the world’s citizens have different problems and needs. Most of these problems can be solved by finding an item. Some items are just dotted around the world, so you need to find the object and bring it to the person needed. Others will be given to you by the people you help. You must figure out how to best use the items and ultimately fix the world’s problems!
Many of these issues are quite strange – a pet shop going under because there is only one pet and a police officer who can’t find a criminal to catch – but once you have solved everything in this chaotic world you will have restored peace to the planet. It’s a short and quirky little game, with a very cool visual aesthetic and a nice sense of humor. It’s well worth taking a few minutes to help out the entire population of this little world!
