Description

FixFox is a wholesome sci-fi adventure game that connects laid-back exploration with quirky machine repairs and cozy comfort foods. Arriving on a curious planet, Vix and her toolbox Tin explore deep space, fixing quirky machines with unconventional tools and eating cozy meals with kind robot locals.

 

Play as Vix, an unlucky space mechanic, who crashlands on a mysterious planet where tools are forbidden. Vix and Tin go on an epic adventure, repairing an interstellar beacon, constructing giant mechs, and unraveling a cosmic mystery that transcends existence. 

Features

  • Traverse the planet by scooter, clear pathways with a power loader, or go on a journey by paw to discover Karamel's landmarks then finish your day next to a toasty campfire.

  • Repair friendly machines with unconventional tools like coins, bandages, glowy bananas… anything really!

  • Enjoy cozy meals like homey soups, warm rice bowls, and even some totally-not-expired pudding. 

  • An estranged brother looking for a lost sibling and artificial intelligences working through past traumas are just a few of the tangled mysteries that need to be taken apart and fixed.

History

In the early 90s, Jaroslav's parents brought home their very first computer - the Polish knockoff of the Atari 8-bit. Using an old handbook, he learned how to code in Basic. From that moment, he wanted to dedicate his life to making games.

Fast forward to 2012, after visiting the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima and witnessing the consequences of violence and hatred, Jaroslav made a personal vow to never play or make violent games. Instead, he focuses on making games that promote kindness and friendship.

Quotes

  • "As a peaceful walk-enjoyer in real life, it's nice to see you can do the same in FixFox. Nice strolls through meadows and mountains are encouraged, as is chilling by a campfire afterwards. The chiptune music adds to the niceness. It's just all-round nice. I am here for it." - Rock Paper Shotgun

  • "With its cute characters, situational problem-solving, and relaxed approach to adventure, all daubed in 16-bit style and backed with a pleasing chiptune score, FixFox looks to be a cute ‘n’ quirky adventure, sure to be a hit with tinkerers everywhere." - Destructoid

  • "Jaroslav Meloun is a solo indie developer with a mission: to make video games that teach people empathy and compassion, without resorting to violence or coercion." - TheGamer
