Anything else you want players to know before they play?
Works better if played inside Blender. This was my 1st jam as a developer/everything.

It's a nice base for a game.
Projectile are Way too hard to dodge, the fact that they are coming from every direction makes it pretty random.
The  camera is too offset to the center of the character's 'head', which makes it possible to look through walls.
Also, I don't really see how it fit the strip?
I quite liked the 'lobby' though.

Not sure what to do here, lol. The dinosaurs could face you more rather than expose their 2D-ness by a sideways view. Its also a slow descent to earth too. Didn't realize Blender had a game engine which is pretty cool. The music is a little all over the place. Nice sound FX though.

Instructions are written on the wall of the lobby :P You must take the ions and load the beam (once you have them, go to it and press E). It will slowly drain water from the planet. If you get to drain the planet, you win. Red gems will boost your life, and you have a jetpack. Dinos will shoot at you, so you have to avoid them ;)

I loved the museum the 3d earth model and the jetpack was great to use. My three suggestions I can give are.


1.Label the health and jet-pack fuel


2. Say that the dinosaurs shoot you


3. add a dash or increased walk speed


Other than that I enjoyed it and liked the ending quote!  Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm doing a review of design on the games in this jam so here's a shameless plug to my channel if you want to be notified of the vid when released: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Vj46GGL9VMUvd4YTMtjXg
