Yeah, there's pretty much only one way to fight the spiders-- by going on top of the ship via the elevator and shooting them.

Ahh ok, I'll keep that in mind for the next update. Now you can adjust mouse sensitivity and walk speed in the options menu-- which can be accessed by pressing f2 or going there from the main menu.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked visuals!

Hey man! Three new big updates have been added to the gun: Rudder, Jump and Stats mode. The image above shows three new icons in the blue screen on the gun.

STAT MODE: Pressing the shield icon on the left gives the player the status of the ship. Ship stats will tell the player what the strength is of the ship's hull and shield. Written as so: SHD = shield strength, BDY = hull \ ship body strength.

JUMP MODE: The Arrow icon on top is the "jump" function. In version 1.2, there was a progress bar added when you starjumped-- telling you how much longer the jump sequence would last. So now that feature can be displayed on the gun. Also, this function will show the player their score-- points they get when blasting rocks away, fighting spiders or even disarming warships.

RUDDER MODE: The steering wheel icon to the right is the new "rudder mode". Rudder mode allows the player to steer the ship from the roof of the ship and regulate the speed from the gun. Basically, you press the trigger button and the ship will steer in the direction of the blue laser.

Many thanks for your feedback and comments. I appreciate the support.

That's great that you got 2 pieces! If you die the game will return you to sector 1, but you still keep your inventory. In the next update or so there should be save games so you can come back to your inventory if you quit the game.

I would love to do multiplayer (co-op would work especially well). But it might be a while before I dive into actually putting it in, since, it would be a can of worms trying to program that and I'm currently the only programmer.

Thanks for playing!

P.S. Sorry I didn't see the other parts of your message. If the game is running slow for you, it might be a line of code I messed up on to optimize the game. I will focus on the performance of the game in the next update. Also, you can adjust your walk speed in the options menu.

Ship communication will be in the future updates. Others have suggested that you can float out in space. I will let you know as well if I decide to implement this. Many thanks again!

Thank you for the compliment about the gameplay. And yes, it is very much meant to be like a simulator. And no problem for the delay, I should also apologize for my delay.

First of all, thanks for playing! I think you're one of the few that's beaten the game, to my knowledge. If you get all 4 pieces there should be a "complete" artifact added to your inventory and if you check your score you should have a nice bonus!

After beating the game, the only other thing to do (besides just roam around), if you haven't already, is to get the other items from the other sectors-- like for instance there's a gas can item you can retrieve in sector 1 and a pogo stick in sector 2. Each sector has one item besides the artifact pieces. In the next update or so, there will be achievements, so the game will at least recognize that you did that kind of stuff after beating the game.

I want to apologize for your ship getting decimated so fast when you were at full power! Which sounds like some kind of error in the game. Now after dying, the game should just return you to sector 1, with your inventory intact. But I still think being able to save your game in the future will help things. That way, you can still come back to the game after beating it.

Again thanks for playing and thanks for posting your comment! Its appreciated.

Haha, good point! Thanks for commenting too.

Well already in the game, there's different sized meteors and different colored ones too. There's also a comet floating around in sector 2. So I guess it really boils down to making variations in the meteor textures (like by changing the number of craters and where the craters are placed).

So I'll make a few "alternate" meteor textures for the next release to give them a little more variation. Thanks for the suggestion!

Doing a planet in the style of minecraft \ 3079 isn't a bad idea. I guess I would prefer making the terrain smoothed. But yeah, larger planets (like even planets a 3rd of the size of earth) couldn't have the entirety of it be feasibly explorable (and usefully explorable). So yeah, good point about segmenting the planets into manageable chunks!

I think for this planet, since its pretty much a small moon, allowing a rover to roam around wouldn't be too hard to do. I just need to work out how the spherical gravity would be coded.

As for kickstarter \ donations. At this point, I'm trying to get the demo to be more presentable. That way it can be a good launch pad to market a larger and commercialized version of the game to a publisher. But thanks for asking about this, so far you're the first! I appreciate the interest.
