The game is attached as a .zip that has a .app and .exe of my game.

Controls are WASD to move and SPACE to shoot.

Note that if you use the .app, you need to right-click -> open because obviously people need to be protected from unlicensed applications rather than, say, hard-drive firmware viruses.



Artist’s Statement:

I wanted to use overwhelmingly familiar things in such a way that they’d create an alien feeling in the user.  Originally I had wanted to exactly copy the gameplay of asteroids, but I decided to make some minor alterations to make it more playable, thus avoiding the situation where the player is feeling frustration rather than a sense of being in an alien situation.  I’m fairly happy with how it turned out, though I’m sure there’s some bugs in it somewhere.
