Resonance Miner

by andreimarks - Jam Entry

Basic idea is a simplified Asteroids / Eve Online mining simulator mashup.

Mine asteroids with lasers, discover gateways to connected worlds, upgrade your ship, find the long sought after Omega ore.

More info on the Itch.io site.

Changes based on feedback:
- Simplified controls. One button thrust, mouse aim.

Beatiful work.

Controls is too hard for me. Need instruction and adding functionality step by step.

It's a good job but the ship is very hard to control :/

Hi there. Like the really smooth graphics and tightly linked sounds. Not obvious what to do from start 'menu' area. Like that menus and playfield are operated the same way, but it should be clearer where to go first. Managed to mine some hematite eventually. I suppose the other side is you get sense of achievement from working things out... tricky balance. Bookmarked for a deeper look later. Good job!

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.
