Here’s a game I put together over the weekend for Ludum Dare 29. The theme for this weekend was “Beneath the Surface” and the idea was to make an outer space fracking game.
You are controlling the latest in space fracking technology, a little rover with the task of retrieving space resources from a moon or asteroid or whatever. Use your shockwave (
spacebar) to frack open the resources, and then drill (
shift) to extract the resources for processing. But watch out for enemy rovers sent by rival corporations!
The enemy rovers are a less sophisticated model without cutting-edge fracking technology, but they have been extracting all the available resources for a while and will not hesitate to hit you with a shotgun blast and steal all your newly fracked resources. Avoid them carefully, or use your shockwave to blast them out of the way!
Watch out for the space fracking protesters, too. You don’t want to cause a PR disaster by accidentally running one of them over!
