Voyageby bogdan.tana - Compo Entry
Voyage is a game about exploring a story - the story of a crew that set out to explore the far reaches of space.
The player will experience 1st person exploration, guided by various clues.
And of course there is a snowman in it. The temptation was too high.
Use 'WASD' to move, and 'E' to use objects (dials, laptops, clues)
Have a paper nearby to write down the numbers. I haven't had the time to implement
a journal mechanic :-s
CONNECTION TO THE THEME
The map will update with all the unexplored areas as the game progresses. Yes, THAT is the connection to the theme. The ENTIRE game/ship is mapped on that ONE screen.
It's still pretty buggy. Will patch it up.
There is a lot of content that's halfway done and could not make it in the game.
I will soon set up a post-compo version for the sake of it.
Fixed some MAJOR bugs. Game can now be actually finished.
Mouse still not centered. Will fix soon.
You may experience low framerate, due to some issues. Will look into fixing it after a bit of sleep.
Fixed Engineering Bay progression issue!
Fixed font rendering issue!
Hope you will enjoy playing it as much as I have enjoyed making it!

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
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.
