Waft Run is classed as a first person indie adventure game where the player controls a character that aims to navigate the environment collecting chimes in a limited time frame. The player will come in to contact with enemy AI and will need to defend themselves. The environment is structured in a way that supports fluid movement. The player will have the ability to boost/jetpack. The game is heavily based on movement. In my project the player will use keyboard and mouse/trackpad to control their player. For the best user experience, a mouse is recommended.

With independently-created games (Commonly known as Indie game) rapidly growing the market is very hungry for unique games like Waft Run. It is primary focused at gamers that have a strong interest in addictive/competitive gaming.

The game is built using C# and JavaScript in the MonoDevelop cross platform IDE and is aimed primarily running on Windows PCs. The game is set to be deployed on the Google play store.
