An original video game
Conceived and developed by Antonio de Miguel Conde, Anthony Sirac, Mélanie Schwartz, Laurène Hurlin, Alexandre Hénon and Maeva Marie-Céline — students on the 3-D Video Game course at LISAA Paris — Stella: Amazing Space Cadette is a platform video game based on physics, inspired by the world of sixties sci-fi.
Stella, a young recruit in space, finds herself grappling with an army of space pirates, despite the physical inconveniences that hold her back during her first mission.
The player inflates her space suits with different gases to go forward and fly. Each gas has different properties, changing the way video games are played.
