Hi! I just wanted to share my contest entry. I've spent (as I'm sure most of you did too) many sleepless nights working on it, polishing every little detail and now I would appreciate some feedback since I was the only "tester" involved in the development process. If you like it, please give it a vote here. As a new member of this community and someone who isn't very active on social media, I don't have high hopes for the People's Choice award, but still, it would be great to see that at least a few people enjoyed my work. Trailer: Spoiler In Space Smuggler you can explore the galaxy, customize your ship and fight your enemies in space and on planets as well! This action-packed sci-fi side scrolling game combines platformers and shoot'em ups with RPG elements. You're not destined to save the world or to change it in any significant way, you're just an imprisoned ex-smuggler trying to escape and start a new life. Screenshots: Spoiler The game was created in a month using Game Maker: Studio, Google SketchUp, Audacity and Gimp. It features realistic physics, a puzzling story (even though it might start out somewhat generic, wait for the twist) and roughly 35-40 minutes of gameplay. I've tried to gradually introduce the new elements and increase the levels' difficulty to keep the experience from becoming monotonous. If you think you missed something, the bottom part of the pause menu gives additional information on the various power-ups and the backstory as well.

I've recently uploaded a new version fixing some minor bugs and this release, unlike the original one is compatible with Windows XP. Click here to download it. Have fun and again, in case you like it, please don't forget to vote More info on my website.
