So I have been doing my second Re-LD (doing old LD themes in LD-comp time), and I finished #2!
(this post will be a bit of a repeat from my last, but arrr I’m tired…)

Theme:
Construction / Destruction

Concept:
You are a starting barbarian ruler, and you plan to build a grand castle!
Who has to pay for the expenses? Well, time to squeeze the peasants & raid the neighbors!
But at the end of the year they will come for revenge. But your castle should withstand that, no?

Mechanics:
2D Terraria-block craftyish, placing structures over blocks (throne rooms, doors), or outdoors (soldier tents).
Mobs/soldiers move in clumps and fight whatever they bump into (opponents, doors, etc) – if they get to the throne room / command tent you are dead!

Progress:
I got music & sounds & archers in this last day, and plenty of balancing, so I am pretty happy. Did this one in Jam time again (3 days instead of 2), that seems to be more my pace. Tomorrow, Jod and I will be doing the Mini-LD together. Arr so much LDing!

>Play it!<
