I recently came up with an idea for a new game and have spent some time fleshing out a quick demo of the concept. I want to throw this out to the community basically to get an idea if this would be fun or stupid.
Thruster Phase is a science fiction game where you guide a spaceship through various levels to reach an energy source at the end. The catch is that instead of directly controlling the ship you specify a series of thruster phases that are then executed in a simulation!
Basically the ship has 4 engines each in a direction and you tell each one how long to fire and how strongly. You keep iterating on your sequence until you complete the “mission” succesfully.
If this doesn’t make sense then hopefully it will when you try the demo 😀
Here are a few images of the game to give you a general idea.
Last but not least is a demo with a little tutorial and 5 introductory levels!!!
I’d love if anyone reading this would try it out and let me know what you think of the game concept!!!
