Evil Inc.

by DWallin - Jam Entry

Mad Scientist:
When equipped to a lab scientists work to research upgrades to your building and personel. These upgrades are then added to your purchase menu

When equipped to a warehouse thieves will go stealing and add stolen goods to that warehouse.

Hired Muscle:
Hired muscles can be assigned to either labs or warehouses. They defend it by fighting invaders. They lose if the cumulative power of the muscle on the floor is less than the invading hero.

Policemen go to a random warehouse floor. If they are successful they will arrest all criminals on that floor and empty it of loot.

Superheroes go to a random laboratory floor. If they are successful they will arrest all criminals on that floor and disable the floor.

The Yard:
The yard is where new random recruits come and wait. You may assign them to a floor from here. If you don't they will eventually wander off. Heroes will go through here so you will be able to know what kind of hero is coming.

Theives add loot to your warehouse when equipped. This accumulates and at any point you may cash it in by fencing the goods. However while fencing goods your thieves can't steal and any thieves out stealing will return to help.

You equip scientists to labs where they research upgrades to your buildings. When their research is finished it is added to your store where you can purchase it.

Game designed and created by David Wallin and Wasif Zaman.

it looks good and it's a potentially fun premise; but as-is, it's just dull. all i really do is watch numbers go up and click a button when i can afford something. i hope you expand on it after judging is over and make it into something really fun.

I like the characters and the rooms aesthetic.
But I wasn't able to make any upgrade in the lab, then I'm not sure of the real potential of the game.

Thanks for the feedback. We are working on finishing it to the point of matching the description we described. I'm hoping to be able to post it before or early this weekend for people to check out. We are also considering creating a more advanced version with a ton more room types and character types and a more interesting upgrade system.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
