Judging from the screenshots it's an impressive game. However I couldn't play it.

I tried it on Chrome, but after title fades nothing happens. All I can see is a crosshair in the center of a black screen. Controls don't respond as if the game wasn't in focus even in the fullscreen.

This looks fantastic from the screenshots. I haven't been able to get it to run in Chrome or Firefox on Fedora. Do you have minimum version requirements listed anywhere?

Thanks for give me a chance to try it out!

Impressive stuff! Looks great, I really love how you didn't over detailed the things which wouldn't do a good job at this resolution in my opinion. Instead, everything is clear what it is, the space is nice, loving the planets and the Fantastic Drive effect is cool! I really hope it'll have more stuffs later. It really needs some ambience sound, gameplay goals, or even just some mini tasks. It would be so much fun to fly over more alien planets, maybe deliver stuffs from planet A to planet B while avoiding an asteroid field. It has potential!

In overall it's a really good experience.

Couldn't make it run. Tried on latest Firefox and Opera.
Specs: Intel Pentium G860, 8GB RAM, GeForce GTX 750, Windows 7 Professional x64

I just see four white dots, basically the crosshair. Nothing else happens. Really wanted to test and rate it!

Really enjoyed playing it, I really enjoyed going from planet to planet, and the superspeed thing was really useful.

Good work dude :D

Remarkable effort to make this game. Looks cool also.

Impressive!! Performed well on Chrome, crashed firefox, Windows 7 x64

Doesn't work for me on Windows 8.1 with nvidia, neither Chrome nor FF. =(

Super impressive that you wrote this in Shadertoy, great job! Performance was fine for me. One suggestion is that maybe you make it more clear how to start moving, and maybe add a goal for the player to work towards (e.g. collecting things).

That was very interesting. It's certainly impressive that you wrote it in Shadertoy!

It worked alright for me in Chrome OS X, but Safari had trouble with it: it started up fine, but tanked shortly afterwards with a beachball.

Hey everybody -- author here. Apparently LAIKA really pushes the limits of WebGL on certain setups, so if you're having trouble running it, please post your computer setup here and I'll see what I can do.

It was developed in Chrome and Firefox on a MacBook Pro in OS X 10.9.5, and should work okay in that configuration.

fnatastic drive is trully ~fantastic~
