FixFox 🦊🚀 is an open-world adventure about finding and fixing stuff as a space mechanic on a distant planet

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.
🚀 Explore a uniquely handcrafted world in 8-bit pixel art.
😁 Make friends with a memorable cast of characters.
"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. It's just all-round nice. I am here for it."
Traverse the planet on a peppy scooter, clear pathways with a hefty power loader, or simply go on a peaceful journey by foot to uncover all the landmarks on Karamel. Hum along to catchy chiptunes while discovering secret locations, testing your noggin on whimsical puzzles, and finally settling down for the night next to a toasty campfire looking up at the starry sky.
Repair machines with uplifting personalities such as a passionate lawn mower using unconventional tools like coins, bandages, glowy bananas… anything really. Live out a space mechanic’s dream by constructing and operating giant mechs to help out the local robots with their peculiar problems.
Fixing things can be tough but ending the day with cozy food always makes it better. Enjoy delicious meals the planet dwellers have to offer such as homey soups, warm rice bowls, and totally-not-expired pudding. Making a friend over a meal with hospitable robots may just reveal a vital clue to solving your next quest.
Starting with an unassuming beacon repair job Vix quickly finds herself mixed up in more than her own tale. An estranged brother looking for his long lost sibling, specialized artificial intelligences working through past traumas, and an ongoing feud between two planet factions are just a few of the tangled mysteries that need to be taken apart and fixed.
In order to survive the global catastrophe of Earth’s cold atmosphere post climate change, mankind has genetically modified themselves to take on animal traits. The fur acquired from the genetic splicing helps humanity cope with the freezing weather and the ability to hibernate allows humans to sleep through long interstellar flights. This furry future is where the story of FixFox takes place.
In the early 90s, my parents brought home our very first computer - the Polish knockoff of the Atari 8-bit. Using an old handbook, I learned how to code in Basic. From that moment, I wanted to dedicate my life to making games.
Fast forward to 2012, after visiting the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima and witnessing the consequences of violence and hatred, I made a personal vow to never play or make violent games. Instead, I focus on making games that promote kindness and friendship.
With experience from game jams and heartwarming support from my friends and family, the dream of making this game has become a reality.
I just finished playing FixFox and it was a fantastic game. The plot was excellent, the characters were fantastic, and I really loved just going around and fixing things with whatever I had to use.
I ran into a few glitches (a crash after calling the speeder immediately after arriving from using the Taxi, a stuck camera on one of the satellites after moving one of the docked parts, and a weird position you could get into on another one of the satellites that you couldn't get out of), but I was able to just load the autosave (which was both frequent and never saved me into a dead end) so that was never a real problem for long.
I did notice that the discord link on this page seems to be dead. I don't know if it is just not active anymore or anything, but it might be worth updating that.
Have a lovely day, and thanks for creating such an excellent game.
