Let’s kick it into high gear!

So the first idea that I came up with after last night’s announcement was a tree-growing tower-defense game of sorts. The player would grow a tree from sapling to mature while plotting seed pods on various branches to bomb the invading gnomes who want to turn your tree into lumber.

I really liked the idea and sat down to see if I could execute on it. Truth be told – it’s definitely something I can make, but I had a feeling like I wouldn’t have gotten it done in time and I would have had to brush up on a little trigonometry (not something I want to spend time on during LD – but needs to happen).

With that, I did some quick planning on a really simple city simulator game where you build structures to grow resources, population, and cash. The player can win by either Infrastructure, Economic, or Population victories.

There is under 36 hours left – this is going to be a mad race to the finish! Come watch us stream live at http://twitch.tv/thoughtreactorlive, we have funk, soul, and all kinds of great music playing.

Wish me luck!
