A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

I am not affilliated with DISNEY, LUCASARTS, LUCASFILM or STARWARS.  This is a project made for fun, inspired by the movies.  I do not own any of the designs or ideas contained within, everything was recreated from scratch, with love, for educational purposes, and the game is released 100% non-commercially.  Please do not sue me or send me a takedown request.  Thank you for understanding.

So this is my game for MovieGameJam.  It might be the most gamey game I've made.  It is inspired by the movies of course, and very much the OG Rogue Squadron game, which I had on PC back in the day.  Please enjoy.  If you have complaints about any star wars inaccuracies, please direct those to notarealemail@internet.biz

Take on a Star Destroyer by yourself in your trusty X-Wing.  Can you do it (without targeting systems, of course!)?

very fun. i reccomend adding a crosshair or something so that aiming is kinda easier. i also found myself getting lost quite a bit so maybe a simple beacon or something to show where the star destroyer is. thanks! great game!
