Executive Zombie

by TheH - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Hello Mr. Executive Zombraaaaaaaaiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnsssss..... *drools*

Executive zombie is a goofy little RTS where YOU are the Executive of Big Brain Corp.

Sadly... times have gotten rough, and you need to re-purpose the interns. Collect their brains, build your work force, and help drone the day one neuron at a time.

This is what I wish I would have come up with and I wish I would be able to execute! (my game is similar) Well done!

The staple gunners need to be weakened a bit.

Great little game. Seems a bit quiet though, lovely graphics and really fun and enjoyable!

Great concept! It felt a touch boring though.

@AlexFili: Yeah, there was a bug with the sound loader, I didn't find it until after the time was up sadly.

@Mercur1c: The game as a whole is going to go through a balancing while I do post-dev and turn it into a full game.

Fun game and interesting idea. I like the graphics, but the game could use sound

I think the staple gunners a re fine, the problem is the level design. Overall it was good, but there is one level where it seems as if you randomly placed staple gunners at the end of a narrow hallway right at the start of the level thereby rendering that level nearly impossible. Overall, the game was extremely enjoyable and a great entry.

Great entry, especially for the 48 hour compo. It can be hard to see how many zombies are selected (they all stack on top of one another). The sprites, animations, and backgrounds are all nice and consistent-- it really adds to the polish.

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.
