Lil' Kingdom Strives To Surviveby lucidlarva - 48 Hour Compo Entry
An evil wizard has cursed your kingdom, Reducing your peasants lifespans to ten seconds. You must gather 400 gold, food, wood and stone in order to pay him to undo it.
Made the how to play below a lil' easier to skim through with the magic of ALL CAPS! Such yelling.
HOW TO PLAY:
Move CURSOR TOWARDS EDGES TO PAN.
SCREEN PANS FASTER ON EDGES, SLOWER TOWARDS CENTER
Shoulda did keyboard panning, sorry d:
SPACE to make NEW BUILDING AT CURSOR.
BUILDINGS COST: 10 wood, 10 gold, and 5 stone.
CLICK BUILDING and THEN a TREE/STONE/WOOD/BARLEY to HARVEST RESOURCES.
EACH TREE/STONE/WOOD/BARLEY ONLY CONTAINS 15 UNITS of resources each
Must RE-ASSIGN BUILDING AFTER COLLECTING 15 UNITS FROM A RESOURCE, almost added a counter, ran outta time.
R to restart... except on end screens d: woops
GET 400 of EACH RESOURCE to WIN.
Units die in ten seconds.
UNITS will automatically be created but COST 2 food and 1 gold.
If you can't produce a unit you lose.
Buildings that are tinted red need orders.
KEEP UPKEEP IN MIND, each house costs 2 food and 1 gold every ten seconds due to the cost of spawning a unit, don't spread yourself too thin.
Figured out how to do the dropbox thing, so now there's an ad free link to make voting easier. I'm not sure how long the dropbox link will stay up after voting, so if you share the game or link it somewhere, I recommend the gamejolt link. If I update the game with new features I will update the gamejolt version, not until after voting of course. If there's some sort of severe bug then I'll update both
Gimp for graphics.
BFXR for sounds
LMMS for music
Audacity for sound/music editing recording
Flashdevelop for the ide
Flashpunk for the engine
Ogmo editor for the levels

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.
