The game

The Intergalactic Trashman mixes a 2D platform game with a space exploration one.

Navigate through the space, land on a planet, explore it, solve puzzles, and face many other challenges while you continue discovering the galaxy. On some planets, you’ll find entrances to 2D platform stages with different themes such as: factories, jungles, temples or castles. These stages have a lot of enemies, but you also have a good set of weapons to get rid of them. But not everything is action, you’ll need to resolve puzzles as well.

This combination of different game mechanics is The Intergalactic Trashman’s strong point. We want to achieve a ‘sandbox’ vibe in a 2D game, a sensation of continuity, cohesion and hugeness. The storytelling is the game spine, our objective is a story driven game and not a shooter with a weak plot that serves as an excuse for killing everything in your way.

The story

After The Last War, the entire galaxy was filled with rubbish, and that’s why the entrepreneur, philanthropist and scientific Nikola Hobbes founded the ‘Intergalactic Trashmen’ company: to recycle tons of reusable and valuable materials spreaded throughout the galaxy.

Kepler works in that company, and the game will take you with him in his journey through the space after he finds his friend and mentor, Goyold, seriously injured. He was investigating one mysterious factory that had appeared in the galaxy with no clear purpose when he was attacked. Kepler will continue Goyold’s investigation, looking for factories throughout the galaxy to unravel the mystery, and he will find himself involved in a conspiracy of epic proportions…
