You are being sucked into a black hole and you ran out of fuel for the hyperdrive! All you have is your spaceship, 2 short-range mining lasers, and... a bunch of hyperfuel-rich asteroids heading towards you!
Defend your ship, mine enough asteroids to fuel your hyperdrive and make a desperate jump before too many asteroids get drawn to you by the gravity!
The hotter the lasers are, the more damage they deal. But be careful to avoid overheating! And keep in mind that your lasers need fuel too.

Originally created for Weekly Game Jam #144 in less than 48 hours. Jam theme: "In the Dark".
This game is open-source. You can find the source code at GitLab.
You can run the *.love file on Linux, Windows and MacOS by opening it with LÖVE.
Or you can download the version with already included LÖVE and all its dependencies for Windows. Just extract the ZIP archive and run ZeroVelocity.exe. If you get a warning from Windows SmartScreen that it's an unrecognized app, click "More info" and "Run anyway".
In a similar manner, you can download the AppImage for Linux.
The Jam Version is the version that was originally submitted to the Weekly Game Jam #144 (with a couple backported bugfixes).
