T-Minus 10

by bitstim - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My game is called T-Minus 10. In it you fly a ship around the inside of a tunnel collecting items and avoiding obstacles. Each tunnel lasts 10 seconds, each subsequent tunnel contains a ghost version of your own ship mirroring the movements you did in the previous 10 second tunnel. Up to ten of your previous incarnations will fly around stealing power-ups and dropping bombs.

Default Controls:

Move left: A or Left
Move right: D or Right
Fire deathbeam: enter
Use shield: left shift
Pause Menu: Escape

T-Minus 10 also includes support for the Oculus Rift.

I love the idea of previous playthroughs affecting your next 'level' like the way they do. Also the game looks great. Though I would've appreciated a bit faster pace.

felt great to play, looks nice and is a solid game idea. Frustrated a little that you could only fire once before needing a pickup and the music was a bit much! Other than that, great work. Very impressed and well done :)

This was a pretty cool concept, yes perhaps you should be able to shoot from the beginning. Oculus Rift support huh? Wish I had one of those. :D

Fun game! I would have appreciated an indicator for when I can fire my lazer 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 ( 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.
