Hi everyone, I'd like to show you my game: 'The Variety'.

Fly as a rocket far away from home and navigate your way through asteroids in a relaxing atmosphere.

Update: I have remade some graphics: new probe, new sun(s), asteroids and more.

I know I have been a little quiet lately but that's because of design changes. However, I will release a demo as soon as it's ready.

- Loot shipwrecks for new technologies and parts
- Shield (defensive weapons only)
- You can fly with warp

meh, so you tell you were being quiet lately?
I posted a topic for my game on other forum and haven't updated it for more than a year already...
Lack of feedback can be discouraging, too.

I keep wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea to write a one-stop script that uploads Ruby/Gosu games to the Ubuntu App Store or some other desktop software directory that is still empty enough :) Getting feedback on the web has become soooo hard - and I can't blame people for being wary of random .EXE downloads.

Anyway, on topic - I liked the colourful design more :P

Thanks for the feedback guys.

That sounds like a good idea - feedback is important (especially for new concepts or graphic styles). But it’s impossible to please everyone anyway :)

The "GNOME Software Centre" will take its place as the default software utility in Ubuntu 16.04 (, which is already used by other Linux distros. One script for several distros, thaaat would be really awesome :P

Links seems broken now. It's been a lot, I know, but do you have some other link with the source? Thanks
