Destination Eden

by _ferritt - 48 Hour Compo Entry

First Ludum Dare entry, so please leave a comment :)

Known Issues:-

Title screen has spelling mistakes, in particular the spelling of ludum as ludem.

Charge up and release thrust to take of from planets.

Distinct lack of kittens.

20/12/11 :- UPDATE

Issue with users playing with XBOX 360 pad, pressing A spawns a boss, this is due to me forgetting to de-activate a debug command, will fix this evening untill then please avoid pressing A. Keyboard users are unaffected.

Other than that have fun :) hope you enjoy


Changed mode away from hi-def should work on more systems now (thanks for the advice).

Fixed the pressing A bug, pressing A no longer spawns a boss
(first boss appears around wave 12 and is horribly overpowered).

Will post an evaluation report once judging has ended, thanks for the comments has helped me see the flaws within the game structure.

You should really really really make a dropbox or another direct link for your download.

I wasn't able to download it.

Please host it in another place please. Dropbox is an excellent place to put (it's free with up to 2GB of space).

I'll check back later ;)

This was pretty neat! The controls are slightly confusing at first, and i think the while-flying thrust should be a bit higher... make manouvring a little easier, but certainly the game is quite innovative.

Lots of tasty particles, too.

Nice game! Fun to play. The controls could be better at times. Especially starting from planets is a bit odd. The boss killed me in like one second. :)

Nice! I'd like it if the camera followed the player, it's hard to play near the edge of the screen.

This is one of the best games I've played this LD! I certainly have not ever seen that kind of game. Very nice job!

I was unable to run the game, being greeted with "no suitable Direct3D blah blah". The problem is that in your project properties, under XNA Game Studio, you have HiDef selected instead of Reach. If you use Reach instead, more people will be able to run it.

Please fix this problem, I've heard good things about this game and would really like to be able to play it!
