Molla Shine (VR)
A downloadable game
VR Only - Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.
Developed during the 2017 Epic MegaJam on the theme, "However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light".
Molla Shine places you as the guardian of the Molla, a flying bug. When the male Molla hatches, he only lives for around 1 minute. During his short lifetime he tries to be the best he can be. As he is filled with the feeling of self-worth the chemicals inside him glow brighter until he literally explodes with pride. If he works hard enough he may attract the attention of the Queen Molla and be chosen to mate and continue his genetic line. These creatures are revered due to their drive and passion to make the most of their short life.
Unfortunately the Molla are very rare and males lack natural competitors to help push themselves to meet their potential. Your job is to control the lure (a robot Molla) to provide them with competition.
Dance against them, race against them and avoid the ones that chase you. Your objective is to bring the best of out them and encourage the Queen to select a mate.
The game experiments with a simple control mechanism. The position of your hands relative to each other shows the lure which direction to face. This gives you fluid control of yaw and pitch without using thumbsticks. The trigger provides acceleration.
Just unzip and run the .exe.
