Ministry of truth decided to destroy all evidence of historic objects.

You are the one to do the job.

Controls: arrow keys ZX, space
or WASD QE

Use ZX for God's sake! It makes plane control that much easier!

Nice ! I love the graphics, atmosphere and colors are great but it is really difficult to control the ship.

Love the atmosphere and the minimalistic style, the ship controls were a bit difficult, but I found that made it more challenging. Over all 2 short levels of great fun !

The controls are rather difficult, but other than that, this is really cool! This somehow reminded me of DarkBASIC games I used to dabble with when I was a kid. :)

I like the graphics and the music, but trying to control the ship actually gave me a headache. It seems like it can't turn very well - normally I would expect the ship to turn when I press the right and left arrows, but they actually do not change the ship's velocity...

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! Simple mechanics that still offered a decent amount of challenge.We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description.

Cool graphics style! We found controlling the ship very hard because we didn't discover Q/E, but we managed to destroy *everything*! :> Music was crazy and catatonic, but we liked it quite much! We would have liked to see more content! The intro screen didn't look as nice as the main game, and we found it hard to see where the compass was pointing! In total, a fun and well-rounded game! :)

Nice graphics, and good weapons feel. If only a bit short =)

The geometry graphics were well made. The controls were tricky, but I bet you'd feel like a boss if you could get good enough to do fancy maneuvers (barrel roll anyone?)

Great graphics! It's short and nice, good job x) Maybe just the controls are a bit too sensitive =)

I've made a short let's play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9QVBy7hPPc

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Many solo participants enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
