Here is some information about the game:

Incognity: A rover story is a 2D survival-adventure game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was one of the four entries in the SNESDEV Game Jam #2021, a contest to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the SNES by making a game from scratch in three months using publicly available resources.

The game puts you in the role of a rover on a strange asteroid. Your goal is to collect artifacts from a crashed ship and explore the mysterious world. Along the way, you have to gather resources called CY, which you can use to unlock improved tech, design better rovers, and reach distant areas. However, you also have to deal with the native inhabitants, who are hostile and will attack you. You also have to manage your energy level, which depletes over time and can be restored at your base or with solar panels.

The game features varied terrains, a map system, a menu system, and a base where you can contact for hints. The game has a slow-paced and relaxing gameplay style, but also requires careful planning and strategy. The game has a thumping music by Sean Kinsey and good graphics with external art from various sources.

The game targets NTSC SNES and can be played on an emulator or a flashcard. The latest version of the game is v0.9.1.
