Ursa Minerby Will Edwards - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Although it looks simple, under the hood there's some pretty tricky code, and I'm really pleased shooting real holes in meshes! Check out the jaw-dropping DEV VIDEO!!!
Being an asteroid gemstone miner in Ursa Minor is really really hard work, what with zero G and only as much oxygen as you can carry!
Luckily, it has it perks; like the "vapouriser" cannon for getting at hard-to-reach gemstones embedded in the rock!
Always make sure you can find your way back to the airlock where you started before you suffocate!
1. fly around using WASD and ARROW keys
2. fly into gemstones to collect them
3. use the vapouriser to liberate gemstones embedded in rock
4. diamonds = 1000 pts, rubies 500 and emeralds 200
5. keep an eye on how much oxygen you have left
6. you only get the one bottle of oxygen...
7. always track where the airlock was so you can get back in time!
17. PROFIT !!!
I'm not musical I'm afraid. So sound effects from BFXR, and its my own server so I'm trying to keep the bandwidth down a bit.

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.
