Let people know how long this project has been going, or share a bit of its history.
The project was developed in three weeks for the GameJam Francophone in December 19.

This is the first collaboration between an indie game dev, a graphic designer and a sound engineer.

We took advantage of the FFS GameJam to release the game in one month.
The polish obviously takes more time…

Code features:
- Bézier curves for the movement of guided missiles and waves of enemies
- Ray casting for the line of sight of the ship and for the laser weapons of the bosses
- Ship camshake in case of damage
- A lot of trigonometry

Have fun!

Made it to the first boss at level 20 and got wrecked with a total score of 7255. Enjoyed it overall and really like the comic/toon look you went for.

My favorite part was the sections where you would get locked into a set space and had to fight a lot of enemies. The "open world" portion was not as fun, but still enjoyable. One thing I would criticize is being able to enter the shop in the middle of combat. It doesn't feel right that I can do that.

Thank you so much for your comment baconation! And well done for your score on first attempt!
I'm glad you had a fun with the game =)

We'll look deeper into the constructive comment you posted about the shop entrance during combat.

Have a good day!

Very cool! Really nice take on asteroids. Only criticism was that enemies and asteroids would spawn out of thin air very close to the player. Really polished and impressive in general!

Thank you for your message and trying the game Dareka!

That is correct, controls are not easy to master. I hope with some training you master them fast ;)

Amazing game. So much great stuff in this one !

Only complaint was that the resolution seemed to be fixed and part of the ui was not on my screen.


One of the top games on this jam imo!

Developer

Hi thanks so much, i appreciate your feedback, it's very encouraging.

The native resolution of the game is 1600x900, and an upscale is done for fitting to your resolution. If your screen does not support this resolution you need to play in windowed mode.

I know it's a problem, for my next game i will consider this point ^^
