In short: a game where you build your spaceship and fight other spaceships.

What I like the best in it, is the construction. The freedom it gives lets you build all kinds of silly or cool contraptions. Many parts can perform actions (turrets can rotate, for example) and all of these can be manually key-binded or, to some extent, automated.

I’d record a vid or something, if I had the software and enough time, but I don’t, so you’ll have to take my word for it and believe me that this game is fucking cool. Now, download the demo and then buy it, you bastards.

The demo is here:
http://www.gimbalgame.com/ (next to the big yellow “Gimbal”)

For the next two days you can buy it for whatever you deem it’s worth:
https://indiegamestand.com/
Even as little as 25 cents, if you feel like being a jerk.

Tell your kids if they’re into that kind of stuff.

I downloaded the demo…It powered up but none of the ‘buttons’ seemed to work..

But then again, i got so many things switched off on my pc, i’m not surprised..

Shame because it looks ok..

Which buttons - in the menu? For steering? It’s WSAD or Arrow Keys, depends on the ship. You can convert them in ship construction.

If you have any other questions, post them here, I’ll try answering them tomorrow in the evening.

The ‘menu’ buttons at the beginning…Only some of them worked with a mouseclick..some didn’t..

There was no ‘Start’ button either..Also the link to ‘Buy’ the game didn’t work to even take me to their website..

Can’t I just blow shit up like I used to with Galaxians?

Sorry for not replying, but when I came back home yesterday, the Internet didn’t work. The provider fixed some shit today and I’m here.

Camel, it’s meant as a multiplayer game, but you can play on your own server with bots, even offline. There are some prebuilt spaceships to choose from, so you can go straight for “blowing up”.

DB, perhaps it’s a resolution problem. Try running it full-screen, window-mode, etc. Sometimes the display resolution is different from the input resolution. Changing to full-screen usually fixes it.

It’s ok…

Since then i’ve noticed ‘buttons’ on a lot of other websites i visit have suddenly stopped being clickable..

So it’s something at my end..
