“Oases” Pays Tribute To A Grandfather Lost In a Plane Crash

Beautiful Game Pays Tribute To Grandfather Lost In a Plane Crash

This is Oases, a game about flying along the pulsing music and beautiful colors appearing all around you. The game comes off as simplistic, personal, and it serves as an interpretation of what may have happened to the developer’s grandfather after his plane disappeared back in 1960.

The game’s designer, Armel Gibson, gives the full setup:

“My grandfather’s plane was reported lost in 1960 during the Algeria Independence War, days before the birth of his first child. This is what I like to think happened to him.”

The game starts out with the plane, in the middle of the desert, falling towards Earth as its engines are on fire. However, rather than the plane exploding, it becomes enveloped into a mysterious portal and transported to a dimension of calming music, beautiful visualizers, and working engines.

While you’re in that alternate dimension, you can not die. If you fly into an object or even nose dive to the ground, nothing happens; you’ll just keep on going.  Oases has no end goal, as each “level” in completed once the music ends, then the game takes you back to the beginning, allows you select another stage, and that’s about the gist of the game.  Oases is available NOW on PC and Mack and asks $1 for a copy, so if you’re all Fallout 4-ed out, give this a shot.
