Aeronautical (LOOK AT US AND OUR WORD PLAY!)
By Gareth Williams (@garethiw) and Paul Yendley (@gredgie)
Chasing a dreaded group of cosmic horrors through time and space, you find yourself battling through air and sea to take down as many of their kind as you can!
If you encounter a problem, please leave a bug report with as much info as possible, and check back for a fix! We will rate the games of everyone that leaves a message!
Should run on XP SP3+. Requires .NET 4. Might possibly need OpenAL installed if it fails to run. I've included the OpenAL redist installer.
This has been tested on Linux Mint 14 (Cinnamon), you may need to install libSDL-mixer (sudo apt install libsdl-mixer1.2). Requires mono. If no joy, run from a terminal (mono Aeronautical.exe) and copy/paste the output into a comment.
Tested working on Mavericks. The Pgup/Pgdn scaling keys cause the game to exit for some reason.
Use WASD/Arrows to boost
Use X/Space to shoot
(alternatively, try a 360 pad)
PageUp/PageDown sets the window size/scaling
There is a "boss" on Wave 6 (and repeated on certain waves thereafter), but we didn't get time to implement attack phases for it so it's kinda lame :]
Sound effects from Freesound
*** We've released a post-jam version with bug fixes, enhancements and music - see the link up there with the jam builds! ***

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.
