by Ligh7zIncrement - 48 Hour Compo Entry was made for the 24th Ludum Dare 48 hour competition by Harry Roy (Ligh7z). It was made 30-45 minutes shortly before the closing period of the competition. It is an extremely short text based game that has the player create the universe from several commands and objects.

It works for me, but I'm unable to do anything after /run.

Tried stuff like /create space, /create SPACE, /create(SPACE)

But nothing works :(

Kind of interesting, but the error messages are a bit too vague when you use a correct command with an incorrect object.

Has the game finished when is created?

Yeah this game was highly incomplete, sorry about that guys and yes the is it, you can use the superheat command again and it gives an error related to a filepath that hints at Earth's location in the universe. I'm not sure why some couldn't run it though, possibly due to differences in Java versions, at any rate for playing it guys, it was made in about 30 minutes

*at any rate thank for playing it guys*

Kinda interesting concept that could be improved greatly with some graphics and sounds. Not bad if it was made just before the end. ;)

Cool for thirty minutes worth of work. Feels like a very minimalist version of Doodle God or something along those lines.

Interesting concept, but not really playable yet.

I like it, almost like a text adventure! Except programming the universe!, good job.

I found this interesting, yet at the same time it wasn't fun. Still, given it was created in around 30 minutes I think you've done great! I can't help but wonder what contains, however...

Aug 27, 2012 @ 11:17pm

@mach60kas the original intention was to have the player govern everything including human creation and make decisions for humanity with different outcomes and with the final objective of creating the technology to create virtual universes but I only thought of the idea about 2 hrs before the closing period haha, and was set to be the basic level universe :) Might finish this in my spare time

I thought the idea was pretty cool, pity you started so late...

Maybe develop it further some time?

Fun concept, but the game behaves very quirkily at times.

Couldn't get it's point. Sorry bud.

What is the point to this game

It didn't really seem clear to me how the commands are used, either (same problem as SteelRaven7). Could be interesting, but needs more work.
