You should all be so proud of what you've put together! This is such a good game! Sure there are a few things that could be tightened up but I got just under an hours worth of play time out of it and I enjoyed every second!
A downloadable game for Windows
Polaris is a 2D platforming game, with inspiration from Ori and the Blind Forest, made by Starstorm - a group of students from The Game Assembly in Malmö.
We sought out to make something that would bring us back to the pixel perfect past without feeling redundant. We also challenged ourselves with the task of telling an actual story without using any words. A story that we feel still felt more relevant and meaningful than just ”save the damsel in distress”.
We hope you enjoy playing our game as much as we enjoyed making it.

Thank you so much for covering us in a video! It was really cool watching you play and see you get increasingly better and fluid at the movement in the game!
