Node Knockout 2013 pitch video, brought to you by The Team (http://nodeknockout.com/teams/theteam).
Zoom the Balloon.
Make Zoom grow with hot air to fly all the way to the moon, as fast as you can. But be careful, the clouds and stars along your way can really hurt! Once you make it to the moon, you can watch the replays of the greats!
Go to http://zoomtheballoon.com/ to get started. From there, you can download and play the game on either Mac OS X or Windows.
Use your left and right arrows to navigate. Tap the spacebar to inflate and fly upwards. Try to avoid the clouds and stars, but reach the moon as fast as you can!
You can click on high score replays to see how the best players achieved greatness.
If the desktop version downloads do not work, you can also play the game online at http://game.zoomtheballoon.com/ which is just a web hosted version used for judging and development.
On OS X, if you get a security warning about an unsigned application, and are unable to load the game, you can right click on the app and choose "Open" and click through the warning that way.
The game features an original score and sound effects by Will Farrell, and original graphics by Marissa Epstein.
