Search for the golden magpie in your awesome zeppelin! Manage your destination tickets and upkeep your ship as you chop your way through temples and jungles to find your way to ever more exotic places. Don't forget to use scrap metal to repair your ship!

Voyage of the Magpie was created for Ludum Dare #30, for which the theme was "connected worlds." Players travel all over looking for the golden magpie, rumored to be in the lost city of El Dorado. The project is basically a set of mini-games. It tries to emphasize the connectedness of different places (which feel like different "worlds") by requiring players to navigate a randomly-generated web of connections between cities, which each offer different selections of destinations. Also the game has 3 distinct phases that are cycled through, which are interconnected by resources. The only way to succeed at the game is to be good at planning your moves, navigating mazes, and rapidly completing tasks. These different jobs are supposed to feel like different "worlds" to the player.
