While there have been many indie games to explore the ideas and themes of space, this time a banana has gotten involved. From the minds at Scooter Software comes a unique zero-gravity banana simulation game titled International Space Banana. This unique title brings fruit into the great unknown as a banana free-floats through space in a uniquely frustrating experience.
This title is designed to be a unique perspective that takes zero-gravity physics into a new definition. Float through space as a banana and navigate puzzle-themed levels in your own way. This is a difficult experience, as you are on an intense mission to undo a horrible experience that has turned you into a banana. Solve the puzzles, float through space, and become human once again.
You play as a scientist who has been turned into a banana. Navigate a space station as you go across multiple levels with the goal of undoing this strange effect.
Spin, bounce, struggle and move using only the controls of a banana. As bananas are not naturally prone to space, this is a great opportunity to test your skills at being fruit.
The game is designed to be difficult and frustrating, and each level only complicates your present situations. The spaceship is full of varying space junk that can make navigating space as a banana a very difficult process.
The game also tries to provoke existential questions and commentary that are designed to provoke thought. While it may not be the end of the world, turning into a banana has several life-changing realities that must be considered. While you can hear the thoughts of the character in his new form, it should be noted that the banana is not in fact talking/
To make the game even more strange, your character does not remember why they became a banana or how it happened. The mission, the environment, and everything is seen through a new banana point of view. The only thing that the character is sure of is that he would not be happy if he became a kiwi
This game plays on the internets love for bananas. With My Friend Pedro and many other banana references slipping into indie games, it is not surprising that a title like this exists. Now all that matters is undoing the transformation are becoming human once again.
This game is great for all ages, unless you are scared of bananas.
International Space Banana is available on Steam.
