Fall Into Space

by maackle - 48 Hour Competition Entry

It's time to leave your planet -- it's being bombarded by meteors. You have to escape into space, overcoming your planet's gravitational field by climbing up the piles of meteorites. The goal is to achieve escape velocity, which gets easier the higher you climb.

You'll need a pretty hefty machine to run this, as it's quite physics intensive. Also, I only tested this on 64-bit OS X. More releases to come, though!

P.S. I'm half an hour late, but I started an hour late, I swear!

I'll wait for the windows port, but for the time being i gave you community rating.

I can't get seem to get this to work - unzipping the archives leaves me with a folder with a 'runme' shortcut, but that doesn't seem to do anything.

Same problem as mtthwcmpbll. A Windows port would be nice anyway, though.

I can't test it because I use 32bit OS X and the binary you've built is x86_64 only.

I really liked this, felt quite etherial (music helped). Gravity getting weaker as you get higher (so your jump getting higher) was cool, but a little frustrating having to wait so long to fall back to the ground again so you can jump). Is there an actual end? I Got into space then it went blue, but nothing happened.
