April 26th-29th 2013 :: Theme: Minimalism
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.

Minimalism? Fuck that, death rays. Whats more minimalistic than destroying the world?
GAME BY TYLER GLAIEL AND MARTIN JONASSON
twisting the knobs controls power to the rooms
red = overpower, blue = underpower
try to keep all the valves neutral (neither red nor blue) unless you need to drastically change temperature
if the knob is blue, the room will cool down over time
if the knob is red, the room will heat up over time
if a room is cool, it will do less work (except for the generator and capacitor rooms)
if a room is hot, it will do more work
if a room gets too hot, it will explode and go black. you can repair it by clicking and holding on it until it's repaired
if the cooling room is blue, it will be doing less work and so the generator room will overheat
if the cooling room is red, it will be doing more work and so the generator room will cool down
if the monitoring room is underpowered, the generator room will go static
upgrading capacitor capacity will increase the size of the city you can destroy, and the capacitors will charge slower (and increase difficulty)
upgrading generator power will increase the charging speed (and increase difficulty)
launching a satellite increases the range (you want the 2nd satellite ASAP)
upgrading a thermostat will make temperature control easier (temperature tries to match power level over time rather than drifting off)
upgrading valve quality will make the steam vents have less of an effect on the valves

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.
