This game is kind of a play on a typical cart-racing game.

You play as Belka and Strelka, two dogs inspired by the actual dogs who went into space. Their mission is to collect various rock samples in space that match the samples that they are riding on to make their collection grow. If they collect the wrong pieces, their sample will shrink.

The game was a very difficult thing to pull off, and though I do admit we bit off more than we could chew, this was still a good experience.

Much of the challenge for me was on the actual track itself. The two players were fixed to the camera while the camera moved across the entire track, which led to some very weird things with physics. Overall the game was a flop and is very much broken, it was a fun challenge and I learned many things with this project.
