Void Rescue - A Ludum Dare 40 Project
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
This is my entry into Ludum Dare 40. The theme was the more you have, the worse it is. So I went with the concept of rescuing people from life pods in a void area, no stars or planetary bodies, in space. As you pick up survivors, once you hit more then 10 or so, then your supplies on the ship start dwindling, and the more you pick up the faster the consumption. There are random events that will either help you or cause more problems. Each time you drop off at the station in the sector, you are resupplied and your jump engine is reset for 1 use. Life pods are only there for a short duration, then self destruct killing the occupants. There are some odd glittery asteroids, if you hit on you lose survivors on board!
The loss condition is 250 dead survivors. The win condition is 250 rescued.
