I'm a little apprehensive about putting this out, because although it seems to be working fine on my end--who knows what'll happen when people actually try to connect to my humble little PC. At any rate, I'm curious enough to try it out. Assuming you're able to connect, the game is controlled by the keyboard as follows:

A/D - rotate left and right
W - thrust
+/- - adjust power
space - fire

I've disabled the other ship models and weapons here--if all goes well, I can always put them back in. After I catch up on my book project, I'll polish this thing up (assuming it's not a turd. Although Mythbusters proved that you CAN polish a turd; but I digress). Have fun!!!

There is currently only one game room available. In theory, you should be able to enter your name and be put in when it comes available, but I've not tested this yet. I'm not expecting a huge load here, but if it did become an issue, I could add more rooms (and hopefully find some way to have this thing hosted for real).

At any rate, enjoy, and let me know (gently) about all the bugs and glitches you find.

Well, so far I've been able to play this with three different people. I know some of you guys want to try it, but aren't online together. Any ideas on that? I thought about just leaving a comment with your available times or when you plan to be on. Might work...Obviously we don't have the raw numbers here to just keep it going incessantly.

Can't find it?

I've installed Unity web viewer but I'm not seing a link to play. Is this still up? I'd love to take a look.

It says "Waiting for input."

It says "Waiting for input." Put your name in. Then you'll be waiting for another player to sign up. If you don't have anyone, get a friend from facebook or Twitter to join in the fun.

Just got it. I guess it

Just got it. I guess it wasn't working in IE 9. I'm in Chrome now though. Waiting for a player :)

I got my wife to try it with

I got my wife to try it with me, but we both just kind of sat there. It never went to the game, just waiting for another player to join. I'd love to try it again if you can give me some points on getting it to run.

Did you put the same name in

Did you put the same name in for both? That doesn't work. Also, are you on Macs?
