Good job with the space physics. Not too floaty but still enough to have to preplan what you want to do.

cool physics! A minimap and a larger world would definitely improve the gameplay a lot. had fun nonetheless!

Nice job! I really like the idea that you could choose between a heavy tail, and carry more, or the fast tail.

Nice mechanic, reminds me a lot of space engineers. Good Work!

Nicely done :) You nailed the "in space" controls. I had problems getting mine to be as I wanted.

Movement/docking into a trailer has a cool feel to it. Nice mechanic of picking up and delivering travelers.

Nice one! But spaceship control is not so easy and convinient :)
Funny thing: I've put one passenger in cargo and dragged other one with mouse :D Exploit! :)

To CoolIron. The thing with dragging passenger, it is not a bug, it is a feature)))

neat game idea. controls felt a bit clunky and the ai was strange.

Loved physics. Graphics style is silly, but very lovely ^_^

Cute! I misunderstood the passenger controls and tried dragging them directly onto my module, which ended up with them free-floating in space once I moved away - you should put in a penalty for 'spacing' people like that ;)

I like the physics! It's fun to careen around bashing things with your trailer; would be even more fun if you could blow up pirates that way :P

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.
