Three and a half years ago, I interviewed game developer Glenn Orzepowski about his game It Happened In Outer Space. Mr. Orzepowski is a graduate of Playcrafting’s game design school and he was hard at work on bringing his first commercial title to release. The It Happened In Outer Space release date has now been locked in according to an e-mail from the developer and you can pre-order the game for iOS and Mac.
It Happened in Outer Space is essentially a very stylish Flappy Bird clone. I had previously raised concerns with Mr. Orzepowski about this considering the large number of clones that had come out after the original game soared in popularity, but he seemed unconcerned about it. Mainly, his focus was on completing a commercial product and getting it out there. You won’t have to wait too long to try this game out for yourself, either: the It Happened In Outer Space release date has been set for May 16, 2019.
“Actually, just getting my first game out whether it sells two copies or two million… just getting it out for me would be a major achievement and I would be feeling very good about myself just to have accomplished that much.” —Glenn Orzepowski
I’ve had the chance to play beta versions of this game myself and I’ve found it to be plenty of fun; It Happened In Outer Space would be well worth checking out. You can pre-order the iPhone and iPad version at a price of $1.99 or your regional equivalent for iPhone and iPad; desktop users can pre-order the Mac version for $3.99. It Happened In Outer Space will launch on May 16, 2019.
