The Navigator is a 2D puzzle-platformer where the player assumes control of a young boy travelling the high seas. The mysterious world around him is filled with floating rocks that have various celestial properties, and the player must help the boy align these celestial rocks to lead him onwards on his journey.
Created as a Game Project in 2018 by ITU Games students, The Navigator is a serene puzzle game with gorgeous hand-drawn graphics. Made in a single semester, the idea for the game concept sprang from the Pixar short film “La Luna”, focusing on creating gameplay revolving around navigating small planets with an anchor. With the help of artist Sara Bøgh, the art style of the game gradually took shape, with references to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince” and the swedish Moomins.
