Green Dragonby 4xisblack - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You are a deep space explorer from a pink planet. Your objective is to find Green Dragon, a celestial body you once spied through a telescope as a child.
I built this game using the new Unity 4.6 beta, which means it's hard to produce a web build because lots of people won't have the beta version of the web player. I'll supply Win, Mac and Linux builds instead!
-This game is sort of QWOP-like in that it takes some effort to navigate effectively. Use the left/right keys (or A/D) to 'dance' your ship along the surface of things.
-Every object in space exerts a gravitational pull on your ship! Hold and release spacebar to 'gravity bomb', ie: Launch yourself away from any objects caught in the radius of the blast. This requires some finesse; if you just fling yourself as hard as possible you'll get going too fast for gravity to catch you and end up way off in the middle of nowhere. Maybe that is what you want...?
-The game is over when you see the text 'END' in the middle of the screen. To get here you must find and touch Green Dragon. Good luck!

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.
