Alien Raidby LTyrosine - Jam Entry
Alien Raid is a minimalist 2D RTS.
Evil aliens built a base on the moon. Nice humans must destroy it.
You are this task force composed of constructions, vehicles and astronauts. You control one unit/construction at a time, change the selected one by clicking over it with right mouse button.
Basic controls are arrow keys (or WASD keys) and mouse buttons.
You start with a base, and when this is selected, you can build other constructions.
Select what to build with left/right and down to confirm.
The Ore Miner extract ore from soil. You will need a lot of ore to build other things.
The Solar Panel add power to your base. More power allows more constructions.
The Potato Hydroponic Farm produce food. More food allows more astronauts.
The Living Dome train new astronauts (use down key when a living dome is selected)
The Factory build new vehicles (again select with left/right and use down key to start).
For units, use arrow or WASD keys to move, left mouse button to attack.
When a construction is selected, click with left mouse button over an astronaut to garrison him inside. They improve this construction efficiency while inside and get cover from attacks. Click again to return him to moon surface.

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.
