    Shipwrecked User-Friendly Edition

    I made a post-compo version of my game, “Shipwrecked“. I did not change the gameplay, but I made the interface more user-friendly.

    Change list:

    • Stats are now always shown to the right.
    • Feedback is now displayed on the top.
    • New hotkeys: QE/12 for using actions, spacebar for closing a window.
    • Help addition.
    • Pop-up help.
    • Shafts are 25% more steady. Deposits bring 2 times more material.
    • In dungeons the amount of monsters nearby is displayed on top.

    I planned to make the help system similar to MCX360′s one (Minecraft for Xbox 360), and it’s now even more similar.

    (You still can suggest things)

      Much better! Now I wish for the red text at the top of the screen to tell me how many enemies are nearby while I am pillaging, and make moving easier, maybe by adding double click = click topmost button (which is usually move) Good Job!

        …I have a feeling you only read partially…
        Instead of clicking the topmost button, you can press Q/1. Instead of clicking the lowermost button, you can press E/2.
        Telling how many enemies are nearby will be added.
