my favorite kind of game, very nice.. liked everything about it really.. my favorite game so far this jam.. 

(i'm a nut for "gravity" so I'd just suggest adding a simple gravity system to each planet.. and intertia-less movement.. but that's just my taste)


This game was actually pretty fun when I found out about the zoom out mechanic haha. Good job :)


Cool game! Any plans of further development?


Thanks! I’m definitely a fan of it so I want to keep working on it. That likely means ripping out some of the hastily made game jam stuff like all the weapons and the upgrade system and rebalancing it. The art and non-combat systems all need a major upgrade. As do the factions... and the NPCs all need to be tied to a different faction with different behaviors... and there should be different ship designs and colors... and I had wanted to implement co-op for the game jam but had to scrap it for scope reasons...

Basically yeah there are wayyy too many things I want to change and improve, but my plan is to keep it in a working state and slowly iterate on it! I forgot how fun it is to have a working save game feature with save and load since it really allows for longer/multiple play sessions and I want to capitalize on that with extended gameplay options and larger goals.


Great to hear.  Good luck!

This is pretty fun! Reminds me a little of a starwars RTS I can't remember the name of but also an old flash game called Starfighter


Thanks! Yeah the mechanics are nowhere near innovative but I wanted to create a game similar to an iOS game I played and absolutely loved back in the day called Ultraviolet Dawn. Unfortunately it has long since stopped working for the latest os releases. Since that game doesn’t work I decided to create my own, hopefully better version! :D
