This was my first Ludum Dare project. I really liked the theme, but I definitely liked the project I chose. I dusted off an old idea and an old name (but made entirely new assets).
Abandoned Planet has the player taking control of the lone survivor of an unknown space catastrophe, she finds herself stranded on a planet and has to find a way to get herself rescued.
WASD or Arrow Keys – movement
Mouse – Aim/Look
LeftMouse – Use device / drop carried item
RightMouse – Use Device Alternate
Mouse Wheel – Switch through Devices
E – pickup nearby item / drop carried item
F – Flash Light
1 – Drink Water
2 – Eat Food
3 – Find Hope
The ultimate plan is that players must figure things out for themselves, a walkthrough to the (simple, for the moment) completion will follow sometime soonish.
Things to consider
The resource mechanic hasn’t been as fleshed out as I’d have liked, for instance hope is supposed to be far more intricate, I will be updating the game in future to make it more important.
