Interesting concept, but couldn't figure out how to actually make a ship so didn't get very far...

Great game concept. I loved to be able to build my own vessel ! However, I thought it would be more like a topdown game than a platform. Controls where hard but the game was easy enough to manage to keep everything repaired.

Overall, that's a pretty good game, but you should add more events, or make some levels. I want to feel that I made some progress :)

Controls are unfriendly for me. But great idea about building levels!

Am on a smaller resolution, so didn't see the controls to start the game at the bottom the first time round. Like the concept - would be cool if the guy had a jetpack or something for the vertical corridors, was difficult to move around in places. Great stuff for just a weekend though!

I didnt quite get the idea of the game in a minute, but I still included this in part 19 of my Ludum Dare 28 Compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out!

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.


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.
