“Unabashedly retro yet forward thinking at the same time” - Nick Tylwalk, GameZebo (4.5 out of 5).
“Doesn’t require taking mushrooms” – Joseph Bernstein, Kill Screen.

All the way from the arcades of pixel-world comes in Space, a fast-paced procedurally generated infinite round-based action and match-three puzzle game hybrid with persistent upgrades, mad difficulty options, and a pumping soundtrack.

in Space combines simple mechanics to create engaging gameplay, and with each unlocked ship comes different weapons that change how you play, from nega-beams and time manipulation to explosive sniper rifles. The entire game is wrapped in the aesthetic of an Atari 2600, with music by Matthew le Blanc. It features four modes, including Match Three and Survival, no load times, one boss fight, and enemies that will test the very fibre of your being.

in Space, no one can hear you match three.

libtiff's current soname in Arch Linux is "libtiff.so.5", but this game wants "libtiff.so.4". Just go to Desura's directory and, inside "common/in-space/libs", make a symlink to /usr/lib/libtiff.so called "libtiff.so.4".

cd ~/opt/desura/common/in-space/libs (this is the full path in my case, the beginning of yours may vary)
ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so ./libtiff.so.4

And, presto! Now you too can partake in wanton evil gem slaughter! :)

Ah, thanks! I didn't get much of a chance to test the game on Linux beyond Ubuntu/Linux Mint (and a disastrous attempt to make it work on Raspbian). I'll try and update it soon so that it works out-of-the-box on more distros.

Similar thing is on Slackware with liblua. symlink or copy to libs dir and problem solved, but for newbie on Linux it can cause problems. I would consider puting all the dependencies into libs.

Little advice from fellow indie dev:
Mint and Ubuntu are two distro that are not that different in architecture (Mint feeds of Ubuntu). There is whole world of distros not just debian based ones.

Interesting game anyway.

This is quite the fun game.
I always felt that there was more than matching 3 shapes (whether gems or oranges) and to be able to destroy them (and get my revenge against those evil score ruining gems) : Wicked :D

I played the demo for 5 minutes and knew that this is going to be my go-to game on Desura.
This simple and unique arcade game just felt...

.... Good? I don't know, I just love it.

@paisaplayer @pewdiepie Nice! Thanks for the heads up :) Dec 10 2014, 6:08pm
I would do a timelapse of making my Ludum Dare games, but I'm pretty sure 40% of it would be me watching old episodes of Farscape. Dec 10 2014, 11:20am

I've put up my #LDJAM/#ld48 game Waiting in the Sky. It's a game about watching the Earth. T.co T.co Dec 7 2014, 7:56pm
This is the first time I've done any decent amount of voice acting in a game. I can't wait for people to make fun of my stupid voice. #LDJAM Dec 7 2014, 11:15am
