folder next to the executable" :(

Gah! Thank you Lianne for letting us know. I am getting a fixed file out asap!

I fail to see any connection to the theme.
I found myself wondering what the hell should I do.

But while wondering, I could stare at beautiful rendered asteroids and the back of a ship. If I had control of the ship (ie: moving up, down and/or even accelerate and break) this game would much cooler.

6/10 improve your game so I can play it

I'm not sure I really get it. It would be nice to have an indicator of my remaining health, since it kind of seems like game overs happen randomly.

Nice visuals, detailed but not too garish. Felt nicely hard-scifi. Game mechanic also pretty interesting, even if a bit hard to predict. (maybe having the 'weapon' have a charge?) A life-bar/hits would have been nice.

The game looks really good. However I also did not really understand what to do. I was able to manipulate some of the asteroids, but how am I supposed to avoid the large gravity wells? A good start though!

Seems like a cool idea but I was a bit confused. I really liked the audio presentation a lot. Maybe a tutorial could help ease me into it.

Very pretty and nice audio but a little aimless

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 ( 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.
