Meltdown

by Crefossus - Jam Entry

Arrow Keys to move. Left click shoots. In WIP - Right click cools.

Your ship has a reactor that is about to explode, but you can use coolant (right-clicking) to restore time.

Not implemented yet:
Win condition/enemies that shoot back.
Certain platforms restore your limited coolant.
The closer you are to meltdown the more damage your bullets do.
Cold bullets slow/freeze your enemies.

Some scripts based on playcanvas tutorial scripts (thanks Will and or Dave)

Your Screenshot looks promising. But I cant play it playcanvas, because I dont have an account there.

Is it possible to upload it to anywhere else, too?

Unfortunately it looks like you didn't get to finish your game. I will say going forward you need to have a way to play your game without registering for a service. Most people will be unwilling to sign up for something just to try a single game out. PlayCanvas must have some sort of publishing option at least, if not I'd recommend using a different engine/tool building your games in the future.

Thanks for pointing that out guys!

I published it and updated the link as playcanvas does have a publishing system. I didn't realize you needed to be logged in to get those original links to work.

Don't expect anything special from that version though, it's pretty much an empty shell :)

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.
