Description

Showing how some things will never change in the future, this entry for the VNGN competition features the homeless in space. Since the main means of transportation has become rockets, they need to adapt as well. Players guide two hobos tied to a rocket (single-player) or two hobos each with their own rocket controlled individually (multiplayer), begging for change. An arrow shows their next victim at all times. Some cash is easy, hanging from asteroids, but other needs to be gained by staying close to alien ships until they drop some coins. All the time, the hobos keep spouting comments. The game is over when their rockets sustains too much damage.
