The year is 2070... Earth's natural resources have been depleted... We thought life was over... Then we discovered Osniea... It is our last hope...

Osniea is an endless space game where you play as a small ship carrying a few humans who were investigating "Osniea" a recently discovered planet that is believed to be able to sustain human life. It is then revealed that Osniea is inhabited by hostile creatures that live beneath the surface of the planet. The time to retreat has passed... We must fight to survive...

I think I got the idea about "Beneath the surface". Basically that's where the enemies come from :) Nice game, has that "old school" feeling. Good work mate.

Fun game. I did manage to get lost by going off the screen, which was hard to recover from. I got to wave 8! I liked the music. Very "ominous space" feeling.

Fun little space shooter. The enemies are sitting ducks when they first appear on screen, though.

Fun game. The text was aligned a bit weirdly, but it didn't detract too much.

Great game! Really easy to get started and good controls. I got a score of 1616 on my first try.

My only complaint is that the enemies spawn in such a predictable pattern and that they all shoot immediately time when spawning.

Thanks Jiddo!

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.
