Space is a game about connections, between you, your keys and the threads of gravity. 

This game was made in 48 hours for the 2021 GMTK Game Jam. The theme was Joined Together. Everything, all art, music, code, and systems were made by hand during the time limit.

To Play: Hold the space bar at all times to keep your planet together. As asteroids come towards you you must hold down the corresponding key(s) on your keyboard and and click in the correct sector with your mouse to destroy the asteroid (Don't let go of space!).

Nice game :)

Got a score of 15,800 then proceeded to miss a 69 asteroid and died. 11/10 would get dunked on again. But in all honesty, very cool and atmospheric game. I love the music and the somewhat obtuse controls, actually makes me think about what my hands are doing on the keyboard rather than just WASD

Good game, good atmospheric sound effects, and great scoring system! (I got 3700!)

While it took me a sec to understand how the controls work, I had so much fun playing this!! The atmospheric music, the aiming UI, the background art, all of it is superb!! I also love that the volume sliders and high score are always on screen; super nice touch. Just excellent all around.

Takes a bit of time to understand the controls, but I still had a good time. Like the graphics 

I love the music, its atmospheric and fits the game by not being too slow or too fast. It hits the right balance. Good job!

Thanks a lot! We had a great time making it and getting it to feel just right.

I love the aesthetic; it's very atmospheric, but ultimately it's not particularly engaging for me. I just don't enjoy highscore type games. But still, the sound, art and motion of everything works so well.

i really like how this game looks, its super cool (i got to 4400 because i'm not good at games lol) i like it :) the way it forces you to keep the spacebar down makes you think differently about your keyboard.

Thank you so much! We are really glad you liked it!
