About the Game

Safe Travels was developed during the LiNK CMGT Jam, in which the theme was: Slow. Safe Travels is a puzzle game in which the player can slow objects down to ensure the safe passage of space ships until they reach the wormhole to their destination.

How to Play?

Safe Travels is a puzzle game in which taking your time and being patient pays off. At any time the player can click on objects to slow them down until they are clicked again, which makes them return to their default speed. Each level has a limit to how many objects can be slowed down at the same time – so use your powers carefully.

This explanation is also presented in-game through a simple tutorial, as seen below:

Notice that only objects with the Arrow Icon can be slowed down.

The game was done mostly using Unity’s Shader Graph. Most of the assets in game are merely planes and spheres with self-made shaders using Unity’s shader graph.

Most of the game’s assets are planes and spheres using Unity’s Shader Graph. The Space Ship used is a free asset from Kenney.nl, part of the Space Kit package. The starry background is the same used in the Endure game, with only a few parameters changes to be suit Safe Travels’ style.
