Flight 128

by AaronMackayBurns - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Flight 128 is about journeying through the world of 128bpm minimal techno. Use minimal techno loops tied to beat pads to move the ship around. Activating pads draws the ship to them offering a slightly unconventional system for maneuvering a ship through a dangerous asteroid field!

My first LD entry!

Engine: Unity w/C#
- Plugins: iTween, TTFText (3D Text)
Code: Visual Studio 2012
Audio: FL Studio - All original loops
Textures: Photoshop for planet textures etc.
3D Modelling: Blender

Took about 16hrs

Very cool! Like the theme and the gameplay. Was hard to tell sometimes if I was going to get hit by the asteroids. Great first entry!

Trippy as hell! I imagine astronauts that are high and trying to drive a spaceship!

Cool sound and music, but that's no way to fly a spaceship...

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.
