randomnine let us know about his adventure platformer set in… OUTER SPACE!!! Behold, Beacon!:

Beacon’s a short free-roaming platformer, in the vein of Metroid, but with a strong focus on narrative rather than upgrades. It’s been getting great feedback since launch. RockPaperShotgun called it “a lovely bit of work, with some happy platforming and a touching ending that I think might get you lot talking”.

It only takes around 15 minutes to play, which has been about as much time as I’ve been able to devote to gaming of late (doh!).
