  • Brilliant! nice minimalist take on space exploration and rogue likes. art style and sound fits the theme and the game quite well and the narrative is appreciated. always nice to see a pico-8 game :)

Love it! Complete it and release it...I love this style!
Just make the main space ship a little bit bigger, and the text less bold to be easy to read.
Question is this a sequel to last year pulp game :D
Good Luck

Developer(+1)

Glad to hear :D

Making the ship bigger is not a bad idea, I might go and do it when I have some time :) Regarding the font, I used pico-8's default font (I don't think it has any support for different fonts)... so implementing a different font in the short timespan of the jam was not an option sadly :(

Is this a sequel? Who knows, maybe... it can be, but I am not so sure!

Thank you again for playing :)

nice game really loved it a lot! but i only have two comments

-make the text less pixelated cause it was so hard for me to read

-maybe add some background music it would be awesome!

that's it and goodjob! ^-^

Developer(+1)

Thanks a lot for playing :D

Regarding the font, yeah I don't like it as well... sadly PICO-8 is very limited and I didn't want to waste time coding a different font.

Regarding the music, I just suck at making it, so I preferred to keep the "silence in space" ambiance to make the game also more foreboding... of course if I was good at making music (didn't want to take something someone else made for another pico game) I would have tried adding a track.

Thanks :D

Made it to a galaxy that needs 40 fuel to jump, ran into a mercenary and while fighting him a trade offer appeared which distracted me, clicked no then mercenary's midair bullets got me and I rage quit. Still loved the game :)

But it did take me a while at the beginning to understand you wanted me to press C+Down because no way that looked like a down arrow to me.

Developer

Glad to hear that overall you enjoyed it :D

Regarding the C+DOWN, I learned the lesson (will just write C+DOWN next time). I wanted to make the trade offers with the planets be opt in... as in you go near a planet and press C to initiate a contact with it... but I sort of ran out of time, so I just made it so that it automatically offers you something every short time... I also made the player ship stop upon any sort of events, because when I was testing the game I used to get a random event while mining metals or collecting gas, and then after the events I would crash into the planet I was near because I couldn't stop fast enough xD I need to find a better solution for that... maybe no events can appear when an enemy is near would be a good idea.

You were very close to finishing it by the way! The jump that requires 50 gas is the final jump in the game currently.

Thanks for your feedback, I hope to get a chance to improve it and make a post-jam version :)

I could see myself playing this for a while! Waiting for the post-jam version that you plan to make :D

Developer

Hope I get a chance to work on it sometime soon xD
