RF87 Original Version

The original Rocket Frame 87 was completed about a year and a half ago. It was my first major project with Gamemaker Studio, and offers about 40 minutes of game play. You control the three main characters, can gather items, mine for resources, build structures, and do basic research. A little piece of the background story is revealed every evening as the colonists gather around the campfire. The items are set up to be random, so in one game the red berries might be edible, and in the next game they are toxic. You have to research each item to find out. There is also a simple character development system that allows character to specialize in a certain task (science, construction, etc.)
