It’s a minimalistic space trading game, a la elite.

Press “F” to switch to fullscreen, it’s a much better game when you do this. It’s kind of small and more confusing if you don’t. Of course, if that doesn’t work, then you’ll be stuck playing it small. Sorry for that. Controls are pretty simple: left, up right; or a,w,d for turn left, accelerate, and turn right. Z to shoot, X to dock, and tab to switch shops while docked. Since there is no deccelerator, you will have to accelerate in the opposite direction. Also, there is no friction in space, so if you accelerate too much it may become difficult to maneuver (plus you will waste fuel). The idea is to accelerate towards your target till you hit some ideal speed, and then accelerate away from your target when you are closer.
Unfortunately, I worked on the basics right until the deadline, and didn’t have much time to balance the actual universe. So many trade routes might stink, and it is probably a bit easy to die. If you upgrade your health a lot at first, then you might survive longer. I find it very fun, and hope you can too. Enjoy!
By the way, I’ll definitely be working on this more, so if you have any ideas for improvements feel free to give me a comment.
