Really nice looking game. Well done. I included it in part 3 of my Space Cowboy Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out. http://youtu.be/LMpWaeHJe_I

Hah, thought you might like that. You can also use Q and E to roll normally.

Oh, hah - don't know how I missed that. Sweet barrel rolls :D

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, we noticed the glitches too and it's on our todo list. Better sounds than the ones I made in asfxr too, hah.

Also, next time you play, try holding shift and hitting A or D, you'll enjoy it. :)

Sharp visual style, good sense of speed and movement, solid controls...I had a good deal of fun with this. There were some audio glitches when I played it, especially when I got close to the other ships and lots of clips were playing, but that's a relatively minor issue.

I think controller support and some punchier sound effects could both help improve the feel of this game pretty substantially, but using the mouse for movement felt good to me as well.

Also: Barrel rolls would look super rad with the tracer effects you've got on the ship. :)

@v21 Thanks for the feedback! We'll be updating the controls so you can set thrust via the numbers on the keyboard and also adding gamepad support soon. The AI is admittedly a bit dumb, but I'll be working on that too. :)

@lux_pp Yes indeed, there was little time for optimization, which is something we're looking to get patched up ASAP!

I liked this, and the art style was really effective, but did it need to have so many controls? Like, they were surprisingly usable, but I tried playing this just with a trackpad (and no scroll wheel) and could survive & shoot things well enough. I mean, part of that is down to the over-effectiveness of circle-strafing, but...

But still! Exciting shooting people in space times!

Pretty intense. I think I was experiencing some lag, though.

Try out Super Murderwolf, if you haven't already. :D
