In a Lonely Sea of Stars - Ben - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This was my first Ludum Dare entry! I'm so proud to have gotten so far, even though it's not 100% perfect.
Anyway. I think it's pretty self-explanatory in-game (there is an included tutorial), but I'll explain here, anyway:
You're the president of a galactic harvesting company. You build harvesters on suns to harvest their energy and ship it back to earth and sell it. (Click the green button in the bottom right corner to build a harvester)
However, the space commies (you all know the USSR was evicted from earth in '94 after World War III, right?) will do anything to attack your precious, precious energy. They'll send ships to attack your transports. You need to protect them. (Click the purple button in the bottom right corner to build a turret)
CANCEL BUILDS BY PRESSING 'ESC'!
There was no time to implement an end goal or a title screen, but I think this is an excellent first shot.
- Turrets place farther away from earth than where you put them.
- Game is impossible to beat if you follow the tutorial (ships come too early to build a defense turret)
- Defense turrets do not aim anywhere.
Edit: I forgot to mention that you may cancel the current selection (harvester or turret) by pressing ESC at any time. Cheers, and thanks for the feedback!
