I think the start time has been delayed..?

Yes!

Unsatisfied with the computing power the AI unit had managed to muster by converting the entire Earth’s garbage into quantum computers in the service of mining cryptocurrency - the AI unit turns its attention skyward - designing, fabricating and launching a Von Neumann probe containing a piece of itself in search of new planets to harvest resources and generate more and more computing power: https://lukenofurther.itch.io/computronium

Not sure how to answer that! I used Photoshop to create the image assets and the 'Hall of Mirrors' effect was created as a consequence of using a camera in GameMaker Studio 2 and not having a background texture and making sure the application surface isn't refreshed between steps.

If you mean more generally than specifically, then the only advice I can give is do the thing you love doing and keep doing it until you're good at it.

Thank you for your kind words - I’m glad you enjoyed it! I consider the tone and polish of a game to be an aspect of the game’s design overall - they’re elements designed and crafted to elicit an emotional response in the player just like the mechanics and the narrative. 

Thanks for playing! Yeah sorry about that - it definitely does make the keyboard into a minefield D: This game is a jam but I can look at that issue once the review phase is finished then re-upload an updated version.

Yep - just added a Windows executable just now!

Thanks for playing! I didn’t have time to implement a tutorial so apologies that you got stuck.

Once you collect 100 bits of tech (the number at the top left that increases every time you destroy some garbage)  you can build solar arrays on the cleared-out blue outdoor plots of land. These charge up and can give you an extra-powerful shot that can clear through garbage quicker, you can charge up by right-clicking once a solar array has filled up. This charged shot can by used to power the green mining rigs you can find around the map. When you power-up the green rigs, they slowly generate cryptocurrency - when they turn white you can click on them to pick it up, and drop it in one of the two yellow conduits on the map so that you can use it to buy things with. You can buy more mining rigs on the indoor plots of land  with this cryptocurrency, to make more crptocurrency faster! If you earn enough you can build shells for human conciousness on the orange indoor plots 👍

I’m glad you enjoyed it - personally my favourite part is building a whole load of solar arrays so that you can nearly always become charged by clicking the right mouse button, and blasting my way through garbage or recharging my mining rigs  at lightning speed!
