Tic Tactics

by youdonotexist - Jam Entry

Tic Tactics is a strategy game played on a TicTacToe board.

Objective: Capture three white spaces in a row by moving troops along the lines that form the tictactoe board while your oppononent attempts to do the same.

You can send troops by clicking one of the 4 blue spawn nodes and then dragging to one or more green nodes. Once a path has been selected (signified by a yellow line), click on one of the 4 adjacent white spaces to send a troop to that space. Clicking multiple times will send multiple troops.

Really clever design!

Interesting idea - I had a hard time getting my guys to do what I wanted. The game crashed (all players vanished) on my second game, leaving only a yellow line. Fun, though, and fits the theme.

Hello fellow tic-tac-toe variant maker. I had a diagonal 3 in a row and I lost. I'm not sure if it was programmed that way or is a bug but it is kind of bothering. The game could be a bit more intense as all I was doing was clicking as much as I could waiting for another troop to be used. But the concept was there so good job. :D

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.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
