Boring Cockpit game in VR Studio

Wordrescue and I had a plan to make an entry for the Tigsource.com Cockpit Compo, but a combination of forgetting about the compo until the day before the end of the extended deadline, and not having any particularly concrete ideas resulted in a game about being bored while playing a Virtual Reality Studio game. Behold the amazing combination of my uninspired 3D city and WordRescue's clever pixelart cockpit:

The mouse-only controls are in red around the cockpit, placed in unintuitive and annoying locations The meter on the left measures how bored and upset with the game you're becoming. First time I've ever got one of those status bars to work in a 3D Construction Kit game!

In an effort to avoid dying of boredom, you can try to fight a gigantic enemy crab (shown glitching during its space-invaders attack pattern). Even targeting his weak point for massive damage does little to stop the fatal tedium.

Inevitably the boredom meter maxes out, and you die.

Other interesting facts: even though I set the initial conditions and default border, the stand-alone executable doesn't load correctly until you reset the game at least once. We might try to work on it again later, but not unless we get a good idea of what it should be about.
