Dam It

by swinestudios - Jam Entry

This is a game about a beaver building and protecting his dam.
He is the only animal in the woods that doesn't adapt through the game, making life hard.

As this is the first game we've made with this team, and the first Ludum Dare any of us has done, we messed up a bunch a times. Hours of code were probably written over at some points. Anyway, we think we did well. Enjoy.

So cute! I really liked the blocky graphics and simple explanations. Chomping down the trees was satisfying. Death scene was great.

I couldn't figure out what to do after bringing back 21 logs, I couldn't seem to do anything else and the other creatures didn't grow.

Nice polished game, room for more levels/stuff to do, but I might have missed it.

This game is really fun. The gameplay progression is constant, sounds and graphics are really cute, enemies are quite demanding. Well done :).

OP here. It's true, the game could have used more direction. If you missed it, you go back to the dam after collecting wood.

Pretty hard, I was able to get my poor beaver wedged into walls a lot. Really cute graphics and catchy music! Its unfortunate though that the game is 50 megs big, that's really gonna reduce your audience.

The fish were pretty annoying and I got stuck multiple times. But overall a good game

Great graphics and sound! Nice controls too. I really don't know what I'm doing... Can I kill the fish? Why am I getting wood? Can I like, put up better defenses with the wood? I like how you can kill the birds. Nice touch.
