How was your jamming experience? Were you able to produce more or less than you expected?
I managed to do most of the things I wanted to do. But in the end something happened and all planets were on the same spot. So I had to upload my build from thursday.

How did you apply the theme to your entry?
You make more space on the Earth.

Anything else to add? (share your twitter, twitch, youtube etc.)

I will continue developing the game. But I'm very bussy right now so await a new update in September.

That was a really cool concept! Unfortunate that, like you said, the planets would just spawn together in one place, filling up the screen, but flying around and mining was a lot of fun. It would have been nice to have a different background than the default unity blue, even just changing it to black would have fit nicely :) I did really like the sound effect the earth makes when it gets biggerer though! Great work!

I like the concept. maybe adding in a booster so you can get a speed boost would be neat. I was unable to find other planets just rocks not sure if that was all you had out there in the game. A background letting you feel like you are moving would be a nice addition to the game. Plan on working on this game anymore or just binning it off after the jam?

Really cool idea!  I like the sprite art you have~ but a background would definitely help give it an outer space feel.  Keep working on it if you have the motivation.  Good job turning in a game for the jam! Please check out 'Europa' if you have time.

I totally LOVED the idea. I think it is really cool! It could be extended a lot, maybe mining different types of materials depending on what Earth needs at some moment, or giving the ship a fuel tank so you have to be coming back to Earth at some point.

To give some feedback, I'd say you absolutely need a tutorial, I spent like 5 minutes figuring out the controls and what I should do (and in a short game is a lot of time), and maybe adding some background, so you can feel when the ship is actually moving, because right now when there's nothing around it feels like you're not moving at all.

But otherwise, the idea is awesome and the game is great! I really liked it, good job!
