    Space Ashes is a slow paced arcade game where you control a ship sent on space stations to burn swarming forms of vegetation. Defy gravity in 20 nonlinear levels, explore to find secrets and defeat bosses.

    Shut down the air system, turn off the lights and burn them all!
    But beware, those life forms can become aggressive...
    A not so easy game with a relaxing ambiance.



    Available now:

    Followed this game. I like the look and feel of it.
    Nit picking. The back stars seem a bit too non random spaced in the intro. But not sure thats even part of the actual game.

    Well done.

    Like the title anim and the atmosphere.

    to nit pick too:
    on your site you should change your color scheme. The dark blue of the links on the black background is a bit hard to read for me, not enough contrast compared to the white of text or purple of visited link on black.

    Also would be better to also directly feature your game on the main page than having a near empty page with the basic text and link to go to the game page IMO.

    and on youtube, put also directly the link to shops: steam and itch.io pages.

    same in your presskit, you should give also the link to the shop pages not just say it's available on steam and itch.io

    edit:
    are the controls customizable on the full version ?
    because for some people who don't have/want to use a controller pad; your keys aren't going to be problematic ( any german like layout, where the Z and Y are inverted )

    You discovered my secret: i'm not a web designer. :(

    Yep, I should change that. It's horrible!

    I want to keep the main page like the intro of my site, linking all games but yes, I should pimp that up before the release.

    Done for youtube and links were already on the presskit. I should remove the where to buy though.

    I won't add customizable keys. It's Gamepad or X-C-V and arrows.

    Thx for your comments!

    The title turning to ashes? I really love the effect too. I was trying to find a way to do it in game, in the very first step without lag. I wanted that every X steps, a small hole to be punched on the surface but only where there is color(On the text). Like is this is desintegrating slowly. I first used surface_getpixel but it was horribly slow. Then I discover the buffer_get_surface function. ;)
