Beyond The Crater was created for the 'Github Game Off 2020' a month long game jam around the theme 'MoonShot'. The game is open source and so you can find the link to the source code below (or here). "MoonShot" inspired us to think about the impossible and the moon. We combined these into a game where the player survives the impossible, a crash landing on the moon surface near the habitation they were supposed to land at. The player must survive to set up communications and schedule a rescue mission. The player must craft items and set up drills and power in order to survive the lunar surface, while ensuring they have enough oxygen and food to last them until help arrives.

The game was created by a team of Tom's.
