I was surprised that I liked this game so much. I was a little skeptical since you said it was made in 20 days. I guess I wan't expecting there to be much for me to do. I was wrong. It was incredibly whimsical and had a lot of cool components so I commend you for that. The only suggestion I have is with weapons. It would be nice if I could do something with the weapons other than throwing them. An inventory would also be great since I could have collect food for later and stored any other items. But anyway, thank you so much for this game! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Also, if you want to check out some of my gameplay, here is the video:

So much fun. This game doesn't need to be long or have tons of levels added. It's a fun play as is!

Super silly, super fun little game! Loved it!




This game is really unique and a lot of fun :D



I loved this game, it has a really cool concept with the planets, and taking over different ships. I would've liked a better combat system, but overall it was a really fun game to play and nothing felt buggy or broken. Really good game overall :)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oh-CD3Yt3BY

This game has a lot of potential if worked on. After playing the game for a while, I started to get the sense of some sort of sick back-story you could be developing. The world that you see through your eyes is happy. But... [EDITED FOR SPOILERS]...

Thank you for making this!

Uh... that story you got a "sense of" is actually the exact story that was in the game! I appreciate that you'd like me to expand on it further, but I've edited your post to remove spoilers from the game page. I hope you don't mind, and thanks so much for enjoying the game!

I have downloaded the game (on windows) but how do I open it?

Extract all of the zip file's contents somewhere and then double-click on 'I am the captain.exe' (the one with the icon).

Windows has the somewhat odd behavior of displaying a preview of the zip's contents if you double-click on it. You can drag those files out of there and into a folder of your choice, or you can just right click the file and select "Extract All..." instead.

This game was an experience, I'll say that much. I've never felt more like a captain in my life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXPOQQOT3WU

My ineptness only endears me to my crew... right?

Insanity. And I only at 14:00 realize the full potential of this masterpiece of madness.
