Game Jam Entry: "Spaceshooter Thing"
Experimenting with a team-based gameplay in a top-down dual stick space shooter. Your goal is to destroy enemy ships and capture spawnpoints - though the capture logic didn't make it into the game for time reasons. Except for assets, the game was made in 8 hours.

This game requires a gamepad to be played, no other input methods are supported. It will always use your first gamepad, if you have multiple gamepads plugged in. Controls are:
Left thumbstick: Move
Right thumbstick: Aim
Right trigger: Fire
Start: Restart map
Back: End game
Your viewport will be bigger or smaller depending on your screen resolution - a bigger screen is an advantage, but not a requirement.
