Incredible Story of All Living Things

by Tanner - 48 Hour Compo Entry

IT's an MMO* made with node.js/backbone/three.js/tween.js/underscore/...

... and all the good parts of javascript.

What is it all about?

You are in charge of an evergrowing world in a universe full of evergrowing discs.
But growth comes at a terrible price.

In the advent of your great growth-inducing politics the general disc-populace grows weary of overpopulation and overproduction.
You decide to take the best way forward.
WAR.
War against the unknowingly weak non-blue discs.
Carefully you plan your next aquisitions while balancing your infrastructure spendings with your investitions in green energy and hauntingly large disc-machines of war.



What does work:

Support for up to 51.00000000000002 players
Planets indicate their current production capacity by growing
Planets may revolt (red tint)
Military and a good investition in green technology help to overcome riots.
Attacking
What doesn't work:

There is no chat or ranking.
You cannot transfer your all-killing-war-machines to a friendly planet
If you tab out there is a high chance your browser might die.
Simulation is a bit rough. Hadn't had time to make animations
Same for graphics.
Player starting positions can be compromised from time to time. If you can't grow your disc: reload the page



Thanks for your time. Have a blast!

*at least in a realtivély tiny world it would be a MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE experience. Here it's somewhat of a medium scale multiplayer app.

Slow and confusing, but there is the basis for a good game hidden in here.

I thought this was excellent, a good use of mechanics although it was a little hard to understand at first once you understood you could begin taking over things easily by just waiting for their "civilizations" to collapse and then sending you units in. would have been nice to see some elements sped up a big and i never got ahold of what upgrading did.

I got the box that takes my name and a little bar with buttons that responded when I moused over them but nothing else displayed.

Took me some time to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing. Still not quite sure. There's really not enough feedback. Didn't work in Safari (OSX), but worked ok in Chrome.

Sorry, can't play the game. All the links that are suposed to work for me lead to http://88.80.195.18/ and then it does nothing and leaves me with a black screen. :(
