In the distant future when humanity has a well established mining industry in space, find out what happens when an asteroid field is abandoned.

This is the story of a mining drone that wakes up from sleep-mode alone in an asteroid field and you can decide how they spend time: 

  • Do they do their routine mining task?
  • Do they seek out what happened to the humans?
  • Do they try and find out where are the other mining drones?

Please note; this is a demo of the full game to be released later.

Enjoy!

Thanks a lot, I'll look into it sounds very interesting

Getting this error when starting. Interestingly, I can still get in the options menu if I move the error window away. :)

Thanks for the feedback, I was worried about that. Seems to be related to running in windowed fullscreen. I've disabled it from the options menu, but I guess it still can set itself to this mode at first start. I'll get a fix for this asap!
Thanks again!

Edit: I've fixed it and re-building the demo now for upload. In the meantime, there is an un-elegant way around this by changing your local settings file found here:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\DroneAloneDemo\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini

Find these lines:

FullscreenMode=1
PreferredFullscreenMode=1

And change them to:

FullscreenMode=0
PreferredFullscreenMode=0

(if PreferredFullscreenMode isn't set to 1, leave it, also you can set them to 2 if you prefer windowed mode)

You shouldn't need to do this again, the graphics settings in-game will do all the work.

Hey, just tried the changes to the settings... same error, I'll download the update and try that later today. 

awesome thanks!
