just my thought:
the stars background should move as fast as player movement to show how fast player move

Nice minimalist soundtrack. Once I figured out that the green outline in the minimap was me, I got home easily. =-)

Great Mood. Hard. The ending makes me tremble in fear.

I liked this! It's very relaxing, very minimal, and just hard enough to provide a challenge without being impossible. I had a lot of near misses before I finally got it!

Man that was difficult! The parallax with the stars threw me off because I always felt I was moving slower than I actually was.

This is very difficult and incredibly fun. You really get a sense of isolation, especially with the soundtrack.

Very challenging game: I managed to win after many many tries. The gravity effect is neat, but this game doesn't succeed in making it feel like gravity (Osmos does this, for example). I think it would be better if you were in orbit around the sun, having to adjust that orbit and use gravity wells to throw yourself around.

Good job for 48 hours though!

Lol, tried so many times - and then suddenly I just used one of those boost things and I got home. :D Took like 5 seconds.
You should have worked a bit more on physics, but sure - it's a nice game. I feel like it's TOO simple though. There's no rewarding feel when completing the game, other than getting some pixel-friends back home. :P

I obviously lack the skill to fly a spaceship... inertial navigation system bit of a nightmare, but pseudo-realistic. Nice restriction on engine firing/charges.

The void of space terrifies me. I managed to get home, but it was kind of a fluke. I worry that if I ever was put in this situation I would not be so lucky. 5/5 for instilling deep worry.

very challenging. I really liked the minimalist music it fit really well with void of space. well made.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
