Download it here!

Satilla Complex is on the bleeding edge of delivering industry-leading shipping solutions to our customers! Or something.

This might not be a real corporation, but in this game, you get to be a drone operator! You spend a day controlling the delivery drones that ship packages from the Satilla Complex warehouse to customers.

Use Shift or 'X' to take off, and Ctrl or 'Z' to land the drone. While in flight, use the arrow keys to move the drone.

Watch out for the Canada geese that are migrating this time of year, as well as the vile Despicable Desmond who loves stealing packages from the warehouse.

Thanks SmithyGCN for making most of the sprites, HansAgain for the logo, Miles for testing, and K16 for the music.
Course clear! You got a card.

This is an interesting game, and surprisingly addicting too.

My only issue has been with the drone controls. Sometimes Ascending and Descending are unresponsive. I'm looking further to see if this is actually the game, or if it's just my keyboard.

Oh, heck! I meant to reply a few days ago but I have forgotten entirely until now. (Also Jaxboards ate my post today so you are gifted with a more concise post now.)

Don't worry. It's not your keyboard. The game doesn't do much to communicate to you that you need to raise the drone up to 75% height before you can lower it, and once you've started lowering it you must go all the way down before you can go back up again.

I have some further issues to report.

- You are always congratulated for a job well done if you don't wreck the drone, even if you never deliver a single package! You get 200 points at the end of a Work Day, and I've only ever seen a single Bad Man steal a package in a given Work Day, so it seems like there's no potential for a negative or zero score.

- If you get to either end screen (loss or victory), and then go to the Help screen, this occurs:



(Also, pressing X doesn't return you, but pressing Z does.)

Version 1.1 is here!

It introduces online high scores and various small improvements.

@Nite I'm glad you enjoyed it! You probably won't encounter issues with taking off/landing if you follow the Miles ProTip.

@Miles Good catch with the help screen - I fixed the key oops and the problem with the text appearing way off-center if you visit the help screen after completing a round. I also added new text for when you finish the round without crashing or delivering a package.
