The Kuiper Run - Arcade game

For many years, I've been interested in creating video games. I've had hold of various engines and "easy-to-use" programming languages, but have never successfully made a game. Not until now, at least.

My first true foray into the world of amateur game development comes in the form of an arcade game based on the popular Asteroids. It follows a basic narrative: for the sake of earning money to live, a sole trader routinely dives into the distant Kuiper belt in search of riches within its small bodies and moonlets. This act isn't without its risks: in addition to the life-threatening asteroids, the trader is constantly on the lookout for rival miners as well as the police.

The Kuiper Run is currently a work-in-progress; the alpha version is available to play for free. The game is being developed using Game Maker Studio.
