Concept & About

Ground Control is a small game meant to showcase Mercury's current state in development. The particle system is the main showcase here, with the beautiful clouds and explosions. The game itself is simply a shoot-em-up about shooting down attack balloons during World War IV, in which technology has digressed after the nuclear catastrophe that ended World War III.

We hope you enjoy our first actual game! More of them are coming soon.

We do plan on making a few patches throughout the next couple weeks, mainly fixing small bugs and enhancing the controls.

Requires Java 1.7 or higher.
Have fun with this!

The source code will be released as soon as we can get around to prettying it up in time.
Probably once we get the first update patch out? That'll probably be around the end of this week.

Having some problems with it here.

I am getting around 20fps constantly, with spikes down to 15 when particles start going crazy. This makes the game unplayable at this FPS because the controls actually lag horribly, pressing the keys has a response time of several 100ms.

Also when pressing escape, it shuts down. Not sure if intentional?

Specs:

i5 4200U @ 2.5Ghz
8GB DDR3 1666mhz
Nvidia GT745M/Intel 4500 (both run badly)

Strange... very strange.

Your GPU looks even better than mine, and I still get 60+ FPS.

Are you on a laptop by any chance?

Yeah. I have ran it with both cards and no joy.

The game's controls need to be changed IMO.
Also, got 20 frames per second.

Damn, I got no idea why it's performing that way. I'm running this on a 6 year old iMac with no trouble. Clueless
We'll be fixing most of the FPS bugs in the patch.

In the patch we are also going to be changing up some the controls a bit, so don't worry too much about that.

It comes out soon.
