Play five mission types in one game. Each level introduces either a new mission or a higher difficulty level for a previous mission. Three lives, but get new lives by scoring enough points. Beat your previous high score!

Play multiple classic arcade missions….in space!

Use gamepad left stick to move, right stick to turn (some levels), and right trigger to fire. “A” button to start game. Tested on Windows with Xbox 360 controller.

Or use keyboard, WASD to move, (some levels have no vertical W or S movement) left/right arrows to turn (some levels), space bar to fire. Click the Start Game button to start game, or “Enter”.

I was having that problem. I was able to work around as follows:

In Unity (version 2020.1.3) I went to Project Settings -> Player and under Settings for WebGL, the Publishing Settings, and set Compression Format to Disabled.

It appears what is happening is a javascript file something.js is being compressed to something.js.gz, which is normally fine, but when it is uncompressed, the uncompressed version is still something.js.gz, and is thus not recognized as a javascript file by the web server. Seems a bug in the latest Unity version. Disabling compression gets around this for now.

I figured out the problem in Firefox by selecting Tools -> Web Console and looking at the error messages, and it told me which file it didn’t like, and I examined it with 7-zip.

My only notes were a first-day brainstorm of ideas for games in a MS word file.  I picked one and went with it (note--it's not clear how some would be made into games, just starting points, others are ideas for in-game mechanics, power-ups, etc.) 

I ultimately went with a combo of Time Heals All Wounds, and each level in a different "time zone" (so, time travel).  Submission is here: https://itch.io/jam/gamedevtv-community-jam/rate/640929

Your very own simulated petri dish! Based on a pencil-and-paper game by the mathematician John H. Conway.

Play in browser for free.


I used the right-click Inspect Element feature of my browser.  The first one is "Unity".

You also have to go to the Gamedev.tv game jam page and click "submit your project" and follow additional instructions.

If unsure it went through: at the top right, your user name has a downward-pointing arrow next to it.  Click that, then select  (under Explore) Game James.  At the top of the page that loads, find the button that  is labeled "Jam Dashboard" near the top right and click that.  You can then see all your submissions to all game jams and determine if it was submitted ok or not. 


Time-Flyer
Time heals all wounds! Fly through time, evade when hurt to heal

A 2D arcade-style top-down space shooter

(Not yet available, work in progress)

Fly from time zone to time zone to wipe out an alien attack in The Great Time War. If hit, try to avoid further damage until the ship self-repairs--time heals all wounds!

Made in Unity Engine 2019.3.13f1 personal

Movement: WASD for movement and arrow keys for turning. Space bar to fire.


The wave is a mesh.  I start it out with Z scale 0, lerp it up to 1, then back to 0.

Press or hold Space bar (or Joystick Button 3) to add lift to drone.  Let go to let gravity have its way.  Pilot the drone through the obstacles.  How many points can you get?
