    G.R.A.N.T. Device - EmptyFlash - Game Jam Entry


    Play as a drone, navigating through the safe laboratories of Black-Well Institute of Technology, with your Gravity Repulsion And Nano Tractor Device. In case you can't tell, this game is heavily inspired by Portal.

    WASD to move
    Hold Left Mouse Button to fire a repulsor beam
    Hold Right Mouse Button to fire a tractor beam
    Quick click to fire a polling beam, to see the path a beam will travel

    "Take me. It's dangerous to work with drones."

    Launching Info:
    For Windows with Java, a double click should suffice, and possibly the same with OS/X. As for Linux, depending on your distro, you may need to open terminal and try java -jar GRANT5.jar

    Also, my source code is ugly and gross, so if enough people ask, I'll clean it up a bit and release it.

    Pretty cool little concept.

    I think that having different colors for the beams would have been nice for immediate recognition of what power was firing, but not completely necessary.

    The beam travels far too slowly, and the collision detection is a little... imprecise. Diagonal beams rather confused me - are they useful for anything?
