Spacejacked began as an attempt in 2013 to create a 2D metroidvania game featuring gravity manipulation as the core mechanic. As development dragged on, we realized that we were over-ambitious, and decided to build something much smaller. We created three small arenas, added the building of turrets as a mechanic, and threw in lots of enemies. We liked what we saw, and decided to expand upon it!
