Gameplay Update

here is another update for you!

We are fixing a minor bug of the new HUD feature we introduced with our last update and we are improving some gameplay aspects that had an impact on especially the hardest difficulty.

Plus, all enemy hitboxes have been re-adjusted to be more friendly towards the player when jumping on enemies.


- A minor bug has been fixed where the Universe Map indicator would show up empty after the final mission and for some story items when there was exactly one item left to be collected

- The camera will follow Scott now more smoothly
- Rhino Space fighters will only shoot when they are on screen
- Lava Monsters will only shoot when they are on screen
- The collision boxes of all enemies were re-adjusted to be more player friendly regarding hit detection

- The amount of Rhino Spear Guards spawaning on Lavair has been reduced by 50%
- The amount of Rhino Normal Patrols spawning has been increased by 100%
- The health of the Lavair end boss has been reduced by 60%

- Further Changes were made to the 'Flying Iracus' level to make it easier
- Changes were made to some 'Rhino Moon' levels to simplify the player navigation
- Changes were made to some enemy placements in the 'New Defensio' level

We hope you enjoy this update!

Trading Cards & Update

this udpate implements more of your feedback!

We are rolling the Steam Trading Cards out, including backgrounds, emoticons and badges!

Furthermore, this update improves the universe map navigation, some level design and the story introduction!

Update changelog

  • Steam Trading cards can now be earned by playing Scott in Space.

  • The HUD in the universe map now indicates which planet you must navigate to if there is no active quest or a waiting quest master for you to return

  • The 'Flying Icarus' level is now much easier to finish than before since its gameplay mechanic differs so much from the game core mechanic.

  • The intro video can now only be skipped while the developer logos are showing if there is an existing savegame (to ensure new players get to see the intro video - some players missed it! The video can be skipped after the logos at any time.)

Hope you enjoy this update!

“Tongue-in-cheek conversations keep you smiling...vivid, memorable music...Ragiva Games has delivered a good game.”
Gone With The Win

About This Game

Picture this. One guniea pig alone in the vastness of space, fighting an empire of evil Rhinos. Sure, that's pretty unfair...the Rhinos don't stand a chance!

Scott in Space is a stylized platformer with a classic gameplay core, plenty of different enemies to defeat and quests to fulfill. Can you stop the evil Rhino Empire from abducting guinea pigs from their home world New New Guinea? Can you defeat the dark rhino leader named... Evil Andy?! Can you make it home before dinner? So many questions and so little time!

If you like the light-weight sphere of classic family platformers and you love helping little guinea pigs in space out from time to time (an uncommon hobby), then Scott in Space is the right game for you!

While the easier difficulty modes satisfy beginners and casual players, the hard and the evil difficutly mode confidently challenge hardcore players.

Scott in Space is the debut indie title developed by Ragiva Games. The design team of this game is a group of three indie devs with experience from the games industry who decided to go their own way.


- Prove your guniea pig platformer skills (you have them, right?)
- Fulfill quests for questionable characters
- Enjoy a dead-serious story with non-existent rodent-rhino war humor
- Explore over 50 levels across 7 planets
- Sing along to the orchestral soundtrack (or just listen while playing, your call!)

Short looping orchestral tracks; loose controls; messy animations...this is one of the most generic platformers that has made it's way to Steam. It's only saving grace is a guinea pig - but that guinea pig doesn't wheek OR eat it's own poop, which leads me to believe the developers have never actually seen a guinea pig.

Jokes aside...give this one a miss. Plenty of great games out there to spend your time on, so why bother with the mediocre?

P. S. A cymbal crash plays each time you jump on an enemy. Since this is your main method of disposal, be prepared to get PTSD flashbacks whenever you're at band practice.

It has its weak points, primarily the writing, floaty physics, and lack of any instructions or tutorial, but given its low price, this is still a worthwhile purchase for anyone who likes their platformers to be more cutesy and less hardcore. Granted, at the $5 price point, Oozi: Earth Adventure is a much better choice, and if you're willing to spend more Freedom Planet and Shovel Knight are arguably even better, but if you're like me and love platformers, but get frustrated with the punishingly difficult ones that are all the rage on Steam, you can never get enough of well made examples of the genre that just want to be accessible, and not non-stop reflex tests. This and Oozi are also great choices for kids who are just getting into gaming. As lovingly crafted as Freedom Planet and Shovel Knight are, they might be a little overwhelming for young ones.

Not a completely terrible game, but it is the most generic 2D platformer I've played on Steam. There are far better choices available.

The protagonist in Scott in Space is a guinea pig who kills rhinos by jumping on their heads. The size difference alone makes this ridiculous, but the developers seem to have overlooked the rhinos main form of defence.

For some reason the screen fades to a complete white whenever a new area or level is entered, don't play this at night unless you want to be blinded every 5 minutes.

The one conversation I had with another character was poorly written and involved a dumb name gag which went on far too long.

Good and simple platform game with a good soundtrack and environments.
On the con side i would say the jump not being sensitive to the button press and those annoying Boo like things that cannot be killed (at least not before Spiritus).

Aside from a few bugs this game is very enjoyable, its easy on the eye and it has a great soundtrack. If you fancy some old school platforming then you can't go wrong with this one.

I don't write reviews very often, but, I wanted to donate my two cents.

This is actually a pretty decent game. In terms of plot, explicability of the events, gameplay, and general mien the game has, I'd compare it to SNES Mario. Hit detection can be a little off, and the writing is some of the worst I've seen, but, the gameplay and music make for a genuinely enjoyable experience. The only unforgivable aspect of this game is that there's NO direction on where to go. I'm completely stuck, right now; the game won't tell me what levels I've completed, or where I'm supposed to go, et cetera, so, I keep re-doing the same levels. I have no idea where to go from here. There's no reason for there not to be a "LEVEL COMPLETE" icon next to finished areas. PLEASE include that in future updates.

Otherwise, it's just an enjoyable 2D platformer with suprisingly good music. Don't expect the plot or writing to bring you to tears, and a few aspects of the game may infuriate you for completely avoidable reasons, But, all in all, I've actually enjoyed playing the game, and keep coming back after I've cooled down from redoing the same level without knowing what to do.

Is this worth the half euro I spent for it? Doubtful.
Should you buy this game? I see no reason why.
Will I ask a refund? Well... The guinea pig is kinda cute.

Seriously, this game is really, really bad. The only thing you have to do is to reach the end of a level, sometimes picking up a "quest" item on the road. There are ennemies in your way but it is far more efficient to dodge them all. Jumping on their heads indeed prove difficult and I have not figured at all what determines either you are hurt or you make a hit. Anyway, you have equal chance to die than to kill the guy, so on average, you are dead by the end of the level of you don't run away (but that's what a guinea pig is meant to do, right?).

You can also pick up apples along the way. A certain amount of them will resplenish your life. Otherwise, they are basically useless.

Life is a pig problem. You have three bars of health and three lifes. I didn't quite get the difference between loosing a life and loosing them all (I re-started at the same point in both cases). As has been stressed in other reviews, once you have died, you will have to go throughout the game with only one life as the number of lifes remain at 0 until the end. This is pretty annoying. Knowing that a false jump (and, given the poor quality of the controls, you can bet you will do plenty) leading into a pit will make you instantly loose your one and only life, the game turns out to be incredibly difficult for nothing. Really bad.

Noises may be awful -especially when you are hurt or when you fall. This is more annoying than you can think of.

Are there any pros left? Not many. The main character is cute. The developpers seem to be involved. Actually it made me really sad and I have some pity for them. They seem to have tried to make a nice work with a nice guinea pig... And it just fails. Plainly.

Very very basic jump and run with jpg sprites that look somewhat bland. The gameplay gets boring real fast because there is no good level design. My biggest point of criticism is the awful music. It sounds like some disney steal... horrible

Primarily a childrens game, this 2D platformer deserves a little recognition for not following the tired and dead "retro pixel" aesthetic and actually containing a bit of artistic effort. Plotwise you're a furry (sigh) who has to fight anthropomorphic rat-squirrels and rhinoceroses by, believe it or not, jumping on their heads for points. You collect coins cherries and if you get 100 you get another life. Where have we seen this before?

Unfortunately the game is let down by twitchy controls, repetitive enemies, gameplay derivative from Super Mario but not quite as good, and a somewhat annoying tendency to zoom in and out depending on how the developer thinks your view should appear, rather than staying consistent.

Let down by playability, and drowining in a sea of 2D platformers that just keeps pouring out of the orifices of indy developers all around the world, this certainly isn't worth the $5 they are asking for it.

Just not a very polished or well designed platformer. In the days of current gen platformers, it feels pretty underwhelming that all you can do to hurt people is jump on them. What's worse is the hitboxes for jumping are terrible. Most guys take 2-5 jumps, which is way too many. Then, even if you land slightly off the EXACT center, it counts for you getting hit, meaning you need to follow along them while moving, landing perfect in center, or you get hurt. This leads to you just skipping guys. Each area is the same. You go to one area on a planet and some guy meakes you collect a bunch of an item scattered around before you can move on. This collectible hunting is annoying because it means you need to visit former levels. Other times you have to collect 2 things at once. You barely ever find health. You need 100 apples to get 1 life. If you die with 0 lives you restart entire multi stage level, which would be fine, except for 1 problem. Dying with 0 lives doesn't start you over with 3 lives, it keeps you at 0. Also it always wipes your apples. This means you are constantly stuck with 0 lives rest of game, because you will most likely die before getting 100, wiping them all. This means every level you have to complete without dying. Even better, you can't get above 3 lives or 3 health for no apparent reason, meaning doing well isn't rewarded.

Then there's the bad jumping. Sometimes it doesn't read a jump. Other times it will not let you double jump when you should. Then there's the enemies. You fight the same 3-4 enemies in each area of multiple levels. There is this really poorly done enemy that follows you all over the level, even when you run past it off screen. You can only stop it by turning around, but you can't hurt it. Sometimes they are in a spot that you just have to get hurt to get to next area. It's annoying and stupid. As you progress the fetch/collectible quests get longer, forcing you to get like 30 of something as well as 99 of another to move on. With the terrible repetition of level design, the poor combat and platforming, and boring enemies, there's not much to see here.

Literally the most boring game I have ever played. So generic it's unreal. The controls are quite loose, there's no tutorial, unreachable platforms, unkilable enemies that relentlessly chase you etc that make this game bad.
