Hello this is Pencerkoff
We just started playing right away, we weren't really interested in the menu that modified the ship.
Not sure what to tell you. I could have made a fine 1-player system with the mouse, but that wouldn't work with 2 people. Ship modding was what made this game a game instead of a pointless waste of hand-eye coordination. I come from a long history of gaming where you have to figure stuff out.
Would have been cool to have the ability to ram
I actually had this at one point, but got rid of it because you would always destroy your ship well before you were ready to go out with that kind of a bang.
Also, would have been cool if the ship looked different depending on the build.
Shmup fighters did that. Probably could have merged our methods to make a sweet game. I couldn't think up a good way to organize it to make it look good, and never pursued it. I've never considered myself an artist, and all the graphics from all my games are a testament to that. Everything pretty about this game I stole/borrowed from somewhere else.
