Description:

The year is 2045, and the singularity is here. Machines have evolved, and
they're gunning for us. Ray Kurzweil predicted it, but he didn't imagine that
it would start an armageddon between man and machine. Our three heroes,
Kurtz, Tuxxer and Charlie, set off in a daring do or die adventure to destroy
the central computer which runs all of the AI.

Destroy the evil AI ships so you can plant the nuke at the central computer.
You have three unique lives to do so.

The game has three subtle modes:

Easy: Finish the game. Everyone is expendable.
Medium: Finish the game only losing one comrade.
Hard: Finish the game with the whole team in one piece.

Hints:

* Use your movement keys to avoid the falling bullets.
* Space to shoot!
* +1pt for every hit!
* -1pt for every miss.

Featuring:

* Three original almost-human characters made in GIMP!
* 13 original things that look like spaceships made in Alchemy!
* Original music made in LSDJ!
* Over 35 unique sound bytes made by one voice actor! (There's 36)
* Tons of fun dialog that will make you think twice about your life!
* Awesome slash screens that will make you pee your pants!
* Beautiful dynamic menus with three different backgrounds!
* Font made with tons of pixels in fontstruct.
* Awesome sound effects effortlessly generated with bfxr using all eight bits!
* Wild and Crazy 3D like moving background thing that will eat your CPU!

Warnings:

**If you are running OS/X, you may find that it will lag.**
To fix this, disable SFX in the main menu!

Please run the `run.sh`, as that generates the `src/git.lua` file.

Warning: The git repo is huge! (636 items, totalling 172.7 MB)

It's easier to download the .love or your OS appropriate download.
Forgot to add it to the post. Doing that now.
edit: done.
edit2: updated to v55 [7e69767]

I took a try. Awesome work, man.
That was fun. I always end up dying somewhere after the 7th wave. Too bad.

I also had a quick peek at the timelapse.
The part where you generate the world terrain was really incredible.
It started with rough random white lines, and ended up with a nice & smooth rendering.
Good luck!
That said, you work freaking fast.

EDIT: Seen some .frag files in your spashlib folder. Seems they aren't used, by the way. Garbage ?

Cool game, I love the game quotes :ultrahappy:, though it's sometimes difficult to concentrate on them. I tried to beat the game without loosing any hero, but it seems rather impossible :ultraglee:.

Nice job!

The game is still beatable in the LD form, but I did heavy re-balancing in the post-compo version (check out github). The purpose of this game was heavy content and lots of sound. There was music, sound effects and voice overs.

For the background, I got the idea from an art piece in from the Museum of Modern Art in Vienna. I've always wanted to try it in a game, and it ended up working out :)

I've noticed that when I really get into zone, I pump out a lot of code. the CLOC says I pushed out 1800 lines of code.

They aren't used. They're artifacts from older dev periods where I was thinking about incorporating them, but it ended up not working out.

For the LD24 48HC version, I was only able to beat the game with two deaths. In the post compo version, I re-balanced so that you can beat the game with your first life! I'm glad you liked it :)
