This is not a game in a way you can't control anything except the camera.
But we'll add gameplays mechanics in future updates.

This was inspired by

BoxCar2D (http://boxcar2d.com/)
& Flotilla (http://blendogames.com/flotilla/)

using

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_algorithm
with
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erik_Satie

made by
Leon Denise (Idea, 3D, Algo)
Romain Pechot (Idea, Main system)

with the help of
Andre Berlemont (Idea)

if (for some reasons) the key F1 is not working :

Controls :

F1 : show/hide controls/credits

F2/F3 : mouse sensibility down/up
F4 : reset mouse sensibility

Left/Right Arrows : slow down / speed up time

Up/Down Arrows : +/- volume

Left Mouse Click (on anything) : look at
(click on empty space to reset the view)

Left Mouse Drag : rotate camera

Mouse ScrollWheel : zoom in/out the camera

Can't seem to figure out the control and the goal of the game. Maybe it's my fault, but F1 to display help didn't seem to have worked.

Hi ! I'm Leon,
The project is not a game yet. Romain was inspired by http://boxcar2d.com/ when he proposed his idea.

The actual experience is to observe the evolution of the spaceship potatoes.
In the futur we will update the rules, improve the graphics and setup the gameplay

it looks pretty, but this is a game competition, so you have to expect it to be rated as such.

You must sign in to comment.

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE


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.
