Ten Seconds To Venus

by markusfisch - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are sleeping on board of a space station in Venus orbit.
You wake from a roaring BANG with a big problem: The better half of the station is gone, you are alone and you have just 10 seconds before the station burns at Venus' atmosphere.

I liked playing it a lot, but solving the puzzle left me unsatisfied as it was more chance, not by logic. Feeling of extreme suspense/urgency makes it an outstanding entry!

Great idea, fast and drops the player into the action. Suits the theme of the game too, like waking up in space. Only negative is that when i completed it, i didnt know i had done it. Great work though!

Really loved this game! The graphics were great and the idea of having to rush to get stuff before you died on venus was pretty cool!! I featured it in my comilation video of Ludum Dare 27 Games, if you wanna check it out

I like how you have to jump right in, like a real emergency.

I love the graphics, premise, and game as a whole. Nice pacing. And the pen is a reference to Apollo 11, right? I like it.

That was nice, but I pretty much just clicked randomly after getting the suit each time until i got it. Nice job

Aced it! :D Great idea and nice execution, It only miss music and maybe more rameplay? (call nearby station for help, docking to the station, etc) IMO it would make a great intro to a much bigger game :) good job

the time pressure makes this quite interesting.
would be cool to have different ways to solve this, though

Great concept, really nicely executed. Certainly demands some quick thinking but I guess that fits with the theme :p. Great work!

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.

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.
