Black Hole Runner is my entry for Ludum Dare 27, it’s about spaceship, black hole and time dilation.

Physicists found the fact, speed and gravity can slow down time when they increased, which they called time dilation. It’s an amazing fact, isn’t? Physicists are really smart guys.

Time dilation is the core of Black Hole Runner. You’re a bad luck captain, try to escape from the gravity of a black hole. The only solution is space jump, but unfortunately it needs 10 seconds to set up. At the mean time, you need collect fuel and evade asteroids. The good news is the black hole changed the time speed, you have enough time to response. The closer to black hole, the time is slower.

I think escaping from black hole is a mission impossible in reality, so this game is very difficult. As designer, my best score is 1 second left. Hope you have better luck.Screen Shot 2013-08-25 at 下午5.29.45
