This was a lot of fun. The intro was entertaining and the game overall was pretty cool. Dodging all the asteroids while trying to shoot the robbers was fun, and I'm glad that you made it so that enemies wait for me, because I often got stuck on asteroids. :) Nice work.

I had many hickups and slowdowns during gameplay.
Also note that is not a valid file format on window (I used"%Y%m%d-%H%M%S") to correct that.

Excellent voice acting. The game was also very immersive. After a few rounds of chasing those damn thieves, I soon felt like I was Jake. The boss battle was pretty easy though.

I tested this on FreeBSD after trying it on Windows w/o success..

I like the production value of your entry. A lot of time must have gone into recording and mastering the voices in the intro.

I chased some aliens and shot at them, if felt nice enough, even though I would've wished it would be a bit more fine tuned. I bumped into pretty much every asteroid floating out there, maybe it's just me, but I would've hoped they would be in more contrast to the background so it would be more evident that they are obstacles.

Nice entry, congrats on delivering!

On Windows every time the game calls the "log" function on windows it fails with this error:

OSError: [WinError 123] The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect:

Nice game, good job on the voice acting. It was fun to play until I hit a spot in the third level where it was impossible to continue, there was a spot which the enemies simply flew threw (as they sometimes also did with the asteroids) and I had no chance to follow them as the passage was just to narrow to fit through.
