Just one beginner coder, me!
Also, please download V2.0, it's updated with sound and a simple menu. Also, V3.0 is the source code for the game, people were saying the text was hard to read, so I updated V3.0 and also fixed lots of the storyline. The problem is the license expired so I wasn't able to build a .exe file for it, I'm currently using the free trial. You'll only be able to play V3.0 if you have Gamemaker Studio 2, the engine it was built on. Really sorry! I apologize greatly for the complications

An interesting game overall, and good for one of your first games. I like the concept, though the story could be more fleshed out. The music is nice. Overall, its a good start. Good luck w/ your future projects!

Hey, so lots of people are saying they have trouble in the text, I'll fix that in a bit. And if you do run into blank spots in text, tell me the last dialogue you remember so I can go in and fix it :).

UPDATE: So I updated it too V3.0 and also fixed lots of the storyline. The problem is the license expired so I wasn't able to build a .exe file for it, I'm currently using the free trial. You'll only be able to play V3.0 if you have Gamemaker Studio 2, the engine it was built on. Really sorry! I apologize greatly for the complications

Thanks!

The text is really hard to read, and I'm not sure if it's the font or game but there's some letters with odd parts to them. And I'm unsure if it was a glitch or the story is unfinished, but the dialogue just goes blank at one point. Other than that it was a pretty interesting read.

Developer

Hey, thanks for playing! Yeah, the font's lines were caused by the font itself, not any of the code. It was probably a glitch that caused the story to end, so I update the storyline so it doesn't happen. There is a V3.0 now, it's not an .exe file however. If you read the comments I wrote for the game, you'll see why. Really sorry! This is my first game jam!

It's fairly nice. You should probably use a different more readable font though.

I like the idea and the mood, but I wanted to have some visual way to see the resources like food for instance. And the grey font with white outline is very hard to read.

I was so invested! 

Until I died in a totally plausible way somehow.  :(  I like the idea though.  

Developer

Hey thanks! Glad you liked it! I'm going to be revamping the story soon, so look out for that :)

I like the concept, wish it had some sounds and subtle music.  You could easily build on what you have and add some features to make this real easy to add to collections.  I think the story has legs to grow also.  Great job on your first!

Hey Lost Penguin, 

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad to know you liked it. I'll try to add music to the upcoming versions and maybe some sound when the text is being written. I'll eventually make a flow chart for the story so it appears a lot more realistic! Come back in a couple of days, and I'll have a slightly better game! Glad you liked it!

Hey, so this is a short text adventure game where you play as a lost pilot navigating space! This is my first game jam as a beginner coder and it would be great if you could try it out! Remember, every decision affects your crew!
