Warning this game does not have an ending or start.
Spent to much time on systems and not enough on the actual game.

On the other hand this will allow me to continue development of this project further.

Things that are coded but not in the game:
- Stations
- Economy (Money, Minerals, XP)
- Buy able Ships/Weapons/Thrusters.
- More AI Behaviors

Things that I did not finish in time:
- Different Projectiles: Missiles/Bombs/Mines/Rail
- Different Ships: Mining/Trading Ships
- More Factions (Currently only None/Enemy/Player
- Creating an actual Game =)

Nice work joshimoo! Graphics are very slick, I enjoyed zooming around :)

I liked it. The controls feel good (turning speed a little too low for my taste) and the sense of speed is very enjoyable.

very neat little shooter. It felt "right" for the movement and turn radius mechanics.

The controls are right, but the camera should target the front of the ship, not the rear. And yes, this is not a game yet :)

Can't wait to see what you make with this! Seems like a strong start!

it would have been nice to have a more distant camera in order to see more of what's happening in the game. The game doesn't really fit with the theme though :(

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.
