AGH! Cannot get past Uranus!
And you are right, very similar to another game I saw :)

My muscle memory has been trained all weekend to respond to knobs and buttons in a completely different way... and it's hard to overcome that.

Awesome job, though... thanks!

Love the concept and execution on this, and the space portal graphics. It's fun! I like the audio messages too.

One of the most original concept I have seen in this LD.

The game is super smart and fun.
This sure is a top entry :D

I like how you have a small window and see the planet and such running :D COoool!

Very fun stuff... Its like a complex bop-it played with your keyboard. I was a few seconds away from getting back to earth, and man when those commands back up on you it feels pretty intense. Nice work!

Oooooooo :D I like!

Artemis meets Cook, Serve, Delicious. Nice!

I like that you polished the controls you have instead of cramming in many other controls, which may or may not work right in the end.

Wonderful little game. It feels really polished and I really got into it. Everything from the visuals to the sound was great to me. Nice addicting game!

Amazing visual, sounds and very good connection to the theme. It gets very fun and challenging after a few levels.

Great game! Simple but very polished.
Using DFGH instead of ASDF was kina awkward, but I somehow got used to it.

Sadly, I died on the way back to earth :( But that's what happens when keep bothering the person responsible for ship control with taking photos. *shakes head*

Thank you guys, your messages make me happy!

@klianc09 For the DFGH, it's because I wanted something compatible with AZERTY and QWERTY keyboard ;)

Very well polished, great concept and execution. Congratulations, awesome game!

Great job! :D

This is a really solid game. Fantastic difficulty curve, easy to pick up, and challenging enough to not only lose with grace, but to work on getting better at it as well! :)

Fantastic!

Awesome game. Love the ramping of difficulty. It seems so simple at first, but gradually gets harder and harder. I love how the controls are mixed between each of the tasks, making simple tasks even harder than they should normally be. Awesome entry!

I feel like space monkey. Only do what I asked for. Just like in my game :o)

Very fun and rewarding game concept and gameplay, felt very satisfying when that man comes on and says "Good Job" just takes all that pressure and stress off!

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.
