Our Last Hope

by Graydom - Compo Entry

A philosophical space,gravity mining game. With a blob for a main character(literally).

Use wasd to move around and mine while attempting to reach the core at the center of the planet. If you find yourself stuck try switching the gravity by going to a different side of the planet. What is your purpose?

Web link is untested as kongregate is being weird. It may not work for you. If so would you please notify me so I can repair the link.

Known Bugs:
Text on Main Menu not centered right on most resolutions.

Pressing the 'e' key, activating bomb, is a very slow process(due to poor optimization), and leaves you unable to mine afterwards.

Bomb destroys the core

Poorly optimized

I updated the web link. Sorry it took so long, I was having trouble with getting all of the resources. The web link "should be" functional now.

Nice game, but it doesn't really follow the theme at all. The music was also very cool.

Download version works, online is wrong, I guess media files were outside of unity resources folder (I made the same mistake once).
Any kind of instructiosn would be nice, but I started digging, then got teleported back, then I git the ground, bounced and everything froze...

I played the Windows version. I must admit that the music is quite frankly horrible. The player blob is cool, I cannot really comment the game because I didn't really understand what I should do...

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. 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.
