One-way Ticket To Space Train

by Macroz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Had fun, more to come.

Check out more info at the web page or follow the project later.


Update 1:
- Probably won't work on IE since the game requires SVG support!
- Also as a hint, you need to turn on the life support. Now the power is offline at the start ... The System display is pretty important.

Update 2:
- Fixed a problem that affected FireFox. So now you should be able to survive better :)

There's a lot of potential here, I think you should keep working on this -- I was able to get the life support turned on, but that was it.

I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, but I kept suffocating to death. I hit every button I could think of and nothing seemed to stop it. The feel of the game was really awesome though, I wish I could have explored it more.

Thanks for the comments. I'll be on vacation next month so I'll keep working on the leftover ideas then, as well as tune the gameplay. The mystery feeling is definitely something I wanted.

I finished this on my first go, and it was satisfying. Simple mechanics and more depth needed (but who has time for that in 48h!). Good job.

I liked this a lot! Reminded me of Elite actually. I got no sound for some reason (Firefox), but the mood was awesome.

It was a bit too static, but the graphics were immersing. I finished it on my first go as well :)

Thanks, I'll look into that sound problem when I get to do some of my own sound effects and music.

My plan was to make the game winnable as soon as possible and then keep it going. The mechanics took most of the first day and then I just kept adding stuff as much as I had time for. Now I'm trying to clean it up a bit so I can add more :)

Bit confusing at first, died twice before I managed to finish the journey. Potential can be seen here, but the end result is not that good.

And AFAIK using resources (even free ones) like sound effects are against the rules for compo (so this should be marked as jam entry)

This is great. Would love to see this grow into a full game.

Instructions would be good here... after getting the life support on, couldn't find nothing more to do...
