Thoughts from the author :
5 hours in to this Ludum Dare and I abandoned my first project after realizing I would not achieve anything like my vision, let alone a playable game within the timeframe. So I made this game. I wanted more features in this game.
The original story was "you are monitoring several planetary excavation sites, with the main role of rescuing the occupants of various outposts when they became under siege".
This game is actually just the first part, navigating the tunnels to the underground mining facility, where there you would have a skirmish with various other craft and even alien life forms. Even more, I was going to swap to a first person shooter where you searched the facility for survivors and cleared out any intruders. Then flying the rescued back to the orbital monitoring station.
Yet another idea too grand for my capabilities within the competition timeframe. (note to self ; practice using Blender before wasting 5 hours during the competition constructing various basic cylinders).
The main thing I wanted to accomplish was creating a procedurally generated level. And while there are many flaws with the matching of pieces, I'm quite happy that the idea behind the method worked. All the tunnel surfaces are modified with perlin noise, and my next step is to work out how to make the pieces seamlessly tessellate. There are problems with Unity and inward facing meshes that have a lot of detail when not set to convex, and collisions sometimes show it.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you have fun playing this little game. Enjoy! =]

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.
