Ludum Dare 23 Warmup

Back to Browse Entries


by Redream - Warmup Entry

Try and reach a population of 10,000 citizens in your city! To do this, you need to adjust the flow of money around the city, while keeping unemployment at a low and the income high. If things become unbalanced, citizens will start leaving!

Making this game gave me a good idea of how much time I have to make a game in the real LD, and why I shouldn't make a city simulator in the compo. About 60% of my time was tweaking the numbers!

I hope you enjoy this little mini-game as much as I did making it.

Nice to see how the city grows. Maybe you can also mention ingame what buildings stands for(but of course I could have looked here again :) ), I ended up setting the taxes however I wanted to and it growed and growed. Only the speed changed. But hey, for a warmup-game it is pretty nice.

Doesn't seem to work here :( What is it built in, I may miss some components or whatnot.

Very nice, but I had NO idea what I was doing :-P my city almost always tanked immediately.

Heya MillerMan, I see you are using lidGDX, but how did you manage to make it an applet on a website? Any guide for that?
