    Lost in space - Keirua - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    A short interactive story.

    Your spacecraft crashed on a mysterious planet (more about that in the intro), and you have to rescue your crew in order to get out of it.

    I hope you'll have as much fun playing it as I had making it !

    The game itself isn't very fun nor challenging, but cutscenes are the best!

    +1 for the duct tape.

    Loved the story, laughed a lot, and the sounds are epic too !
    You could make the game harder by adding some gameplay (random compass crash, or magnetic zones that perturb it for exemple).
    Nice game overall =)

    The game itself is as said not challenging, maybe I'm dumb but I didn't understand the compass thing for the first minute, but then it seemed too easy. Maybe hints, or more fun mechanic to guide us would have been great. Great cutscene and humor :)

    Yeah, I wanted to have something finished (intro, menu, credits and stuff), but in the end I did not have enough time to make something fun to play.

    I didn't see a goal at hand, since there seemed to be no crew to rescue. The game also got buggy when I "ran" into a tree. It started twitching a lot. But the Game Over screen and the sad face sprites are hilarious.

    Okay, so it's not the best game in the world, but it made me laugh, has duct tape and the sound effects are awesome! So it's better than a lot of things I've played this comp...

    A pretty simplistic game but the story of the game progressed quickly enough so that I didn't get bored.

    This was funny!

    I like it! :) Very funny. I liked the audio.
    The gameplay could have been better, of course but the entry is very complete.

    One thing that nobody else mentioned (maybe it's just me) is that I would expect the text to fade from black to white on the intro. However, on my system, it quickly fades from white to almost-black and stays there. It made reading all of the text very difficult.

    Yep, a friend of me told me that he had the same issue on Firefox. I tested on Chrome and Firefox before submitting, yet did not had the problem.
    I did not have time to investigate, but I guess it's related to the state of the canvas which is handled differently and which is more permissive in the latest versions of browsers.

    Nice cut scenes, but a bit short and without challenges hehe.

    Anyway, good job!

    Like the ambient sound and overall feel, amusing story too, a complete experience so nice one! Would like to see some more "quests" perhaps? This could be extended in many ways - do you have any plans to do so?

    Loved the intro ! There's not a lot of challenge as I didn't encounter much aliens, but the story was fun.

    Haha loved the audio, the intro and the cutscenes! :D The game itself is a bit too easy/short though ;)

    Pas très dur, mais les sons à la bouche sont géniaux.

    Cute little game. Should have been more challenging thought.

    I enjoyed the cut scenes eve if they were rather wordy.

    Loved the duct tape, albeit underwhelming.

    May 3, 2012 @ 5:27pm

    I liked the game!

    It was rather short though. I loved the custom made star wars theme at the beginning :P

    I think if you had more time, you could add more stuff to find. This could be a pretty interesting adventure game if you space the survivors out a bit and have various items that you need to find first. (And of course with some great art it could be pretty awesome)

    Pretty graphics.

    Amazing one, really funny, and, despite short, fun. The only problem I found is that it is more a "story book" than a proper game. Anyway, good job!

    Cute cutscenes!

    I quite enjoyed the quick play through of your game :) It was a bit too easy, and there weren't many things to do, but I liked the music and the style. Must have been fun to write too!

    Really funny! I love the sounds made by your voice :)

    Wow, our games really are alike... this is pretty awkward :D

    This was a fun little game. It would have been even better if I could shoot the sad faces.

    cool cutscene and nice graphic! Good job!

    Haha, interesting audio sound effects ;) and the intro/story was quite funny, good references. I liked it :) Gameplay was very simple though.

    I found it a little too easy, but pretty fun and entertaining nonetheless. One thing that was a bit annoying was the browser window scrolling up/down whenever I pressed up/down/space (maybe just my browser?)
