Still working in Godot, a space trading game based on Asteroids but with aliens, mining ships, planets etc.


This uses a parallax object to achieve infinite starfields.

I’ve never done a game jam before, so this is my first!

The theme is “throwback”.

Well, I remember a game I played a long time ago. It was like asteroids but… not like it. It had colourful explosions that filled the screen and was crazy to watch. It also had black holes.

So, I’ve decided to do something similar. I’ve called it WakiZoids. Here’s a few screenshots from the game in progress:


and another…


This one has the “ACME Tracking” display. A simple radar showing you objects of interest. The original asteroids had rocks and one spaceship. I’m going for loads of rocks, lots of spaceships of varying types, beasties, sentinel ships… hyperspace?

All in one month?
