I have a decent enough “gameplay demo” if anyone cares to try it out! Just one level so far and there are too many items and the marine commander (m) is a pain in the ass to kill but I find it surprisingly fun/frustrating, which seems like a good place to be on day 4ish:
For now the controls are:
Movement – WASD
Rest / Pickup – SPACE
Cycle system – Q
Cloak/Uncloak – C
Shoot – Click
Melee Attack – Just bump into stuff, roguelike style
Q will cycle which sub-system is being charged. If you don’t want to charge anything, leave it on Power. You won’t charge anything while cloaked.
Clicking on stuff in the inventory after you pick it up will use it (fuel cells), or equip it (rockets, melee weapons). Shift-clicking will drop it.
