Split units is the key.

Great visuals! I'm really impressed you went with a RTS for the LD, and I'd love to see more if this is further developed. Congratulations!

Very nice aesthetic. My home base had a bad habit of disappearing. Is there a reason for this?

Thanx for your comments ! We wanted to continue dev of Gon of War because all the bases (state machine and models) are done and working. In the futur 3 units will be available.
@Leginar : In fact animation is not done yet, but your main bat will be not available after poping 10 units... That's why it disappearred in this release.

It is a very good starting point, ...add a some short of a map, some visual fx for the attacks, and a lot of hud feedback (progress/life/energy bars, names, identifiers, numbers, etc.) and you have a good game :)

Movement reminds me of some old ufo movies. Really interesting, although I didn't get any enemies? Only my own orbs spawning for a while, then the big thing disappears and that's it?

Nice visuals! I just can't beat the enemies and my base disappeared.

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.
