IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

I didn't have time to complete everything that I've planned. Actually there's so much more that I wanted to do. But I don't have any time left. You can see started mechanics that didn't make it to the game every here and there, but I guess it doesn't spoil the game much.
Click everywhere. Your task is to send a distress signal so you and your friend Renard could be rescued.
Power management mechanics I've implemented is sure not the most obvious thing to figure, so I wrote few hints to help you get around and I may or may not write some more later.
HOW YO USE BACKUP CONSOLE:
Backup console has 5 items buttons on the left and 2 control buttons (left and right) at the bottom of the screen.
Items buttons are used to chose items from command lists. Control buttons are used mainly for navigation and command confirmations.
All active buttons are always labeled on the screen - press corresponding button in order to do what the label says.
HOW TO RUN INSTRUCTIONS:
First navigate through items and find instruction you want to run e.g. Activate generator 1, select it.
After that, instruction is added to the queue. To run queue go to the main menu - run instructions.
You will see all queued instructions and time in ms that it takes to run them. Note that you have only 10013 ms in the beginning of the game.
If you want to run queued instructions - chose "run" now.
THE GAME IS COMPLETE AND BEATABLE

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.
