One Room...In Space!

by rambauldi - Jam Entry

This is our first game submission so please be gentle! :D

Much love. Enjoy.

You were attacked by an unknown entity whilst travelling between two planets in trade system. You regain unconsciousness in a large room on the civilian shuttle craft you were aboard.

Before you lost consciousness, you managed to hit the FTL button to jump far away from the trouble, but now your communications system are down and many of the systems on the ship seem to have lost power. You will starve to death long before you are likely to be saved.

You need to get the FTL drive running to survive......


- Your console maybe able to "HELP" you.
- Use [TAB] to open console
- the E key will take you in AND OUT of the interfaces (activate-able objects)


- Web Version had a clash on key bind that made console unusable and thus the game unwinnable! Sorry! (Fixed) [TAB] KEY to Open Console.
- FTL Drive was configured wrong and would instantly kill on click without power. Fixed.

Hmm, nothing I did seemed to do anything, except FTL, that killed me..

Sorry! We were literally on the line with time, and couple of game-breaking bugs were introduced. Fixed. Console is important!

Were a bit confused about what was I supposed to do and got stuck on the oxygen panel :(

Hm, I powered up life support and still asphyxiated rapidly.

Pretty fun entry. Surprisingly difficult especially on a laptop without a mouse!

Took a while to work out what I was meant to be doing. Also if you restart the game using the restart button the oxygen seems to deplete faster and faster.

A bit confusing but in the overall a well thought game.
Maybe some screen explaning wat you have to do would have been a nice idea, but I see you did it in the description.
Btw I like the idea.
Well done.

Interesting. A bit had to figure out what to do, but I am sure this can be fixed by either a help screen, so some sort of hint or job alert system.

I think that the objective should be more clear. The game looks good! Nice work!
