"Dear Grandad, I wish you could be here to see this..."

Postcards Home is a relaxing experience about exploring the world, staying in touch with family, and making the most of the time we have. Fly across Europe and send postcards from the cities you visit on your travels.

Created in a week as part of 8 Bits to Infinity's VimJam.

Great game! had fun playing it, but sometime I think that there was just to little fuel, I couldn't make it to the next one! but I got some good flys in there ;) 

if you dont mind, check out my game Arcade Boy, I would love the feedback :)

Thanks for playing! It was a real rush at the end getting everything balanced so looks like I'll need to go back and add a bit more fuel!

Will give your game a go now :)

Congratulations on this game! For me its really relaxing just flying around and watching some postcards

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it! :)
