You can easily play JUMPLOCK in your browser: https://kpas.itch.io/jumplock
On the space stations, the game is saved automatically.

I would like to know how you guys are taking the following 2 game elements:

  • The auctions. In classic Elite you buy and sell. Here, you are a freight forwarder and get your hands on the loads in live auctions.
  • The encounters and especially the battles, which always take place in or near asteroid fields or group of tankers, where you can find cover and proceed tactically.

In many places you can press F1 for help.
A video guide is available and is still being completed:

Hey, that's great! For us small indie developers, something like this is invaluable.

I noticed that a few things don't work as I expected (as usual).

You probably assumed that a tutorial would introduce you to the game. There is a video guide in place of a tutorial, but you can only find that outside of the game, more specifically in the instructions.
You did consult a help page here and there, but sometimes not. Especially with the shipments, this was a hindrance because you thought you had to buy them.
I will put a link to the video tutorial directly in the game, that is, in the main menu. Best I call it also video tutorial.

Furthermore, I noticed that browser games apparently can't be streamed or recorded that well. Anyway, the video is jerky especially when flying in space.
I will provide a version to download and install besides the browser version.

If you ever get a chance to play again, I would be very interested to hear how the shipment auctions are going.

Thanks so far anyway!
