SpaceGamma

by leewalkergm - Compo Entry

In this game, you are a cargo pilot that has just come out of warp space to find that you've been dumped on the wrong side of the planet.

You need to get to J-2 with the cargo in tact.

Sounds easy?

Yeah... There are also space pirates that want the cargo.

Nice game, I had a little trouble figuring out whether I was moving or not until I noticed the speedometer at the bottom. Reminds me of last Ludum Dare's theme, "Connected Worlds." Anyway, the sound in the game is nice but ultimately I couldn't kill the space pirates in time so I never actually made it to J-2.

It was nice, and the sounds were nice, but it wasn't very fun. There also wasn't really an ending; you just bump into the dock, request permission, are accepted, and the game goes back to the main menu.

Thanks for all the positive words guys :) I'm aware it's not really worthy of being called a GAME.

Half way through making it, I implemented a few parts and got carried away with thinking about what I could make it into - I focused time into the features that would make that possible and in the end spent very little time on the gameplay.

Bit of a failure of a Ludum Dare entry, but nonetheless I had a LOT of fun making this and I'm currently in the process of expanding it!

Pretty cool! My first play-through I never ran into an enemy. Second time around I ran into a whole gang of them. Blasted through the ones in front, and ran away from the rest. Managed to deliver to J-2 both times! For a compo game, I think it was quite good. Adding some more features would make it quite a fun little game. Good job!

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.
