Mini game "Are These Fireworks?"

Long time no see 'cause work is tough and time goes by.

Kostas here, been too busy to do significant progress with any large projects, like the aircraft project. So I decided to break the silence by postponing them, and I tried making some mini-games.

I only recently finished one of them. The game is called "Are These Fireworks?".

You can play "Are These Fireworks?" on GameJolt.


In this mini-game you take control of a civil aircraft, and you have to pass though a field of fireworks to reach your destination. Simple controls and simple idea, and you can unlock a few extra modes by fulfilling certain tasks.


I was hoping to get this game done somewhere near the first week of the year, as a Happy New Year game, but various obligations got in the way. Better late than ever. We hope you enjoy the game.

Today I ran the first playtest with 3 people; we connected over Hamachi, a free VPN solution, and it pretty much went smoothly (except for some non-critical bugs).

Bad news is that LAN connections might be the only thing supported, with little hope for worldwide online games. I already mentioned that in the game's web pages (Itch.io post / Gamejolt post) but I shall lay down the whole story here.


In commercial games, online multiplayer is achieved by putting up dedicated 24/7 servers (preferably in various locations throughout the world) to which the players connect.

In non-commercial games (like Stick Veterans), we have to make do without servers, as they cost money (non-trivial amounts of it). As such, we simply allow any player to act as a server themselves, and other players connect to them. This is called peer-to-peer netwo…
