That background was giving me motion sickness when you're in the rocket! I think a little less on the rotation would help a lot here. I also found it quite difficult to understand - I felt I needed more guidance as to how to make fuel for the rocket and which materials I required for that. Would love to have some sound in there as well - would be great to have audio feedback for the mining and for the crafting! I really like the idea you've got here though. Good job!

That background >< haha I felt myself going crosseyed. Nice litte idea for a game though. Took me a bit to understand what I needed to do and I never got off the first planet due to the affect the background had on me. 

Some sound would have really made this nice. Even little knocking sounds when building or collecting. 

The game definitely has some potential! Great work :)

Thanks for the feedback! In the next update we'll add a setting to turn off the rotation of the background, as several people found it dizzying. We will also include a tutorial and possibly sound.

Played it a couple of times and because of lack of knowing what to do, i failed all of the times. A few things that sprung into mind while playing:

- The player really needs feedback of what he is doing, or waiting for. Like clicking for mining. Just add a healthbar or spawn some particles and you will be fine. Small fixes that are very usefull for the player. - Sometimes the player is floating above the surface of the planet. The planet rotates beneath the player.
- Where is the sound? I know "in space no one can hear you scream" ;) but i missed it.

I really like to give it another go when things get a bit clearer of what the player has to do. I think i need to build stuff to get fuel for my rocket. But overshooting production, using all my coal and other resources kills the chance to do so :( Too bad, the idea is nice.

[AFTER ANOTHER TRY!!! I couldn't let go ;)]
Well, i tried it one more time and i managed to get of the first planet. Is traveling meant to be so tiny? I was not able to see my rocket, i had to use fuel as my boost particles showed me my position. It was way better now i knew what i had to do. Sorry i didn't read the controls earlier :( Indeed a nice tutorial level as intro would be very nice to have.

The game is very unintuitive and the way that the camera/background rotates makes me really dizzy, so I couldn't play for more than 2 minutes.
Such a shame, cause it looks like it has potential to be a good game

thanks for the feedback, we are working on an update that will add a tutorial and other things which will be released after the jam. I will think about how to make the background better, or maybe an option to freeze it :)
