1625

by voidah - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Inspired by the theme Tiny World, and by the so-addictive Plants vs Zombies game, 1625 is a game that give an humoristic look at the current conflict between the students and the government here in Quebec.

Made in c++ and opengl under linux.

Edit: Now works in Linux and Windows.

make a windows version. I thought that was an obvious todo.

I built it in a 64-bit environment and it worked fine, just had to get libtak.so into the library path.
The idea was good, but I didn't see much game. I placed some students and when they died I tried placing some more with mixed results and no real visual feedback as to why.
I think I got the same score as what's in your screenshot too.

Having trouble building this app (the included binary won't run for some reason. 32 vs 64 bit issues?)

A README describing what libraries are necessary and how to build it would be great.

Looks very similar to plants vs zombies

Sorry about the lack of build instruction :/ This is my first LD, and I now know that I should take more time to package/write instructions for the next LD.

Tested on linux 64 bit but should work on linux 32 bit too if you recompile. Quick and dirty instructions to build and test:

- You should have the following dependencies installed: GLEW, sfml, devil (not only the libs, but also the -dev package)
- Download zip file
- unzip ludumdare23.zip
- cd ludumdare23/tak
- touch Makefile.dep
- make depend
- make
- cd ..
- touch Makefile.dep
- make depend
- make
- make run
- voila! :)

I couldn't run this (on Windows) - MSVCR100D.dll is missing

I can't run the Windows executable. it can't find MSVCR100D.dll

As others have said, it can't find MSVCR100D.dll. This usually means you need to compile it in Release mode instead of Debug mode, and get people to install the Visual C++ Redistributable package.

Sadly, I cannot play this game because I have a mac. :C

Sorry about the missing dll, please re-download, it should work now..

Windows version works now :)

Quite good, but it seems there wasn't much skill involved as the best strategy was to place the same number of students in each row (maybe?). Also once the guys with guns came out it was only a matter of time until you got game over and so you didn't really have any control over the outcome. But maybe that was the point you were trying to make? :)

That got really hard, really fast! It was fun, and it got me scrambling for extra "students" really quick :P good job!

Rating based on the video; on a mac here. Looks like your idea is well portrayed.

Nice idea and fun for a while. Don't really see how it relates to the theme though.

couldn't run the linux version, you really need to pack the library dependencies with it, was missing glew and a few others.

tried running the windows version in WINE but crashes immediately on startup
