Bot­tle Rock­ets is a music videogame about a mother and her daugh­ter with Alberto Bal­salm by Aphex Twin as the fea­tured song: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/i-care-because-you-do/id50235162

It is a game to play when you feel sad.

**an online version is underway thanks to the wonderful @BenSironko; I'll be sure to release info as the conversion progresses.**

This game also fit per­fectly into GameJolt’s #glitchjam, #nar8jam, as well as the “Women are too hard to ani­mate” (#wathtajam) jam.

Great game, there is so much potential in this approach to a music game. There is a fascinating tension between the assumed freedom and agency of a video game and the temporal confines of a music video. You have probably seen it but Inside A Dead Skyscraper might be inspiring in some way.

This is an amazing game. Honestly one of the best cause of it's simplicity, the story, and the graphics. Also the music was sweet!

Really smartly done. The whole sense that you are losing control over time, the increasing sense of sadness with the passing messages from home. great mechanics too.
