Stuck In Space

by BadPaul34 - Jam Entry

- Stuck In Space -
An exploration game... on one screen !

You are lost in the iner space. Trapped in the middle of nowhere : everything out of sight is constantly changing, moving. You won't ever find a planet at the same place. Except this strange Station...

Will you succeed to escape this?

Explore, encounter events, fight and fix the station to have a chance to get back home.

I loved the exploration system.
When I quit the screen there were more enemies and planets :D

Nice use of the theme! I liked the graphics. Movement was a bit slow for my liking, but maybe that's because of the 1-screen restriction?

Good job overall!

@2Bit : it seems like your computer fell in a black hole. Maybe rewind time and try again? Everything works fine in my timespace.

@Drtizzle: thank you ! :) Yes we had to make the screen feel big to give a feeling of endless space.

I love this, atmosphere and art are super on point. Very good call making the world seem vast and using the HUD to fill in the details.

Wow, great atmosphere! Very interesting and also very fitting to the theme, a lot of inspiration from FTL right? =)
I couldn't manage my resources very well though, I usually wanted fuel but it just went to fast, I think it could last a little longer.
Loved the idea about the darkness and using it to procedurally created the whole game without the player noticing the changes, very well made

Nicely done, sirs! The size of the ship and speed gives a very nice sensation of vastness, and I really liked the mood set by the graphics and sounds. And, well.... SPAAAAAAAAAACE!!!!

Very good game ! I like the pacing, music, and mood of this game. Gameplay is fun, even if some balance has to be done :)

Great idea, good use of theme. You got the feel of space being huge while keeping it to one screen.

Nice entry with neat and cool concept.
I will say jsut that art is too small, ship speed is too slow that makes me want to push acceleration button harder.
And i would prefer shortcut to use laser beam or shield rather than click. And i didn't get how to repair base.

I liked the mood and atmosphere, but very slow. I ran out of fuel and energy after repairing the base once so I couldn't attack back. I also didn't realize shooting cost energy? and was a bit confused why it was sometimes blacked out. nice idea though!

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.
