A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Developed for the Gbjam5 hosted here.

Metaluna 6 is gearing up for a strike on our good old earth, it's time to launch a pre-emptive strike and destroy their military capability once and for all!

You have been given the Sol Strike fighter Prototype 1 to lash out against those dastardly enemies...

Destroy all enemy ground forces and their installations.

Issues and Incomplete Features (v1.0)

Install instructions

Download the ZIP and unpack anywhere.

There are various shell scripts and batch files in the top folder to start the game in an appropriate window or fullscreen resolution, or make your own sizes by editing the parameters.

Please see the readme file in the ZIP for instructions on running the shell scripts to start the game if you are on Macos or Linux. Also, the readme details what is new, has changed or been enhanced in this version.

Prerequisites are: A recent Mono or .NET (4.5+) runtime and OpenAL. On Macos and Linux, the starter shell scripts will need executable rights to use, e.g. through "chmod +x *.sh" in the main folder where the scripts are. Remember to choose a compatible display resolution when running in fullscreen mode.

All platforms support USB gamepads.

Crashing on launch :(

Hi there, sorry to read that.

Can I help you anyhow, please provide some more details, which batch file did you start?

Please check that the resolution chosen is supported by your machine, try the windowed batch file starters first. Also, the graphics card needs to be Direct X9c compatible but I assume the problem is the resolution chosen.

Prerequisites are mono or .NET runtime, OpenAL.
