Good job. I liked it. More story content would be great. Like the survivor speaking to himself as you played. The longer you played the more meaningful the content/text.

That was actually the original plan! You were supposed to get messages etc. from the ship you were escaping from, but I didn't do it in the end.

This game is so boring I fell asleep during my run and crashed into some radioactive thing.


failnaut responds:

Laughed out loud. Sorry - it's not amazing, I wasn't that far into game development at the time and it was mainly me seeing if I could make an endless runner.

Ok1 Needs more badges. 2 the asteroids shouldn't cover the ENTIRE screen. And 3 not bad at all. I liked it. It was ok.

No. Its fun, and smart, but nothing happens. It speeds up, basically. Theres no art to it, theres no reason for it, its just here. There needs to be reason and art if it's going to be simple. Otherwise, give me a gun and let me kill shit.

The Important Part: You tried, and thats more than I can say for most of the hacks and crap 'artists' here. Give it some story, other than "LOOK OUT, SPACE STUFFS" Give it meaning and depth, make it sad, and touching, and beyond what we would expect.

Trust me, pleasing the idiots that hang out on the internet (me included) is NOT that hard.

Wanted to respond to this as I felt is was a really meaningful comment. The game actually has a considerable amount of meaning for me, and it's going to link into a much larger project in the future. Think of it like a playable prologue, but I will explore the meaning of it.

You're right though - initially I was jumping on the endless runner bandwagon, but it soon turned into something a lot more personal, and while it won't have meaning and depth for most, that's the reason the music's quite soft and there's not a GO GO GO WUB WUB WUB feel to it.

Thank you for taking the time to write that, and I hope I can nail that approach with future projects. Possibly not the next one, as that's a totally silly idea, but definitely in future. :). Thanks, deadcat.
