10" to rise

by canvapps - Jam Entry

10s to rise is a turn based game in which the objective is to colonize as many fields as the player can.
There is a 10 seconds cycle counter that defines how much time does it take to explore, harvest a forest, build a farm, a mine or docks, as well as destroying them.
When the docks are build it is possible to travel to a different user's world to colonize fields on it. To do so it may be necessary to destroy its buildings before edifying new ones.
There are four different civilization each of them provided with its own set of pictures. Maps are also generated with slightly different proportions of forest, mountain or sea.

There is an introductory tutorial that explains the dynamics and, once finished, provides the civilization's avatar. Notifications guide the player through the progress of the game. Stats show the amount of resources obtained as well as a final score. There is a 10 seconds cycle counter that indicates the evolution of turns, and the current action the player is performing. Only one action can be performed at a time.

There are many different actions:
Explore to unveil pieces of field.
Harvest trees and edify Buildings that provide different goods.
Build docks to unlock the hability to travel to diferent worlds.

There is also the possibility to play collaboratively with other players, planning group campaigns against other players.

This game is pretty cool! Ilike it, and I like how the map can grow and stuffs. I featured it in a compilation video on Ludum Dare 27 games, if you want to check it out,

Pretty nice, haven't seen a game like this in the jam yet. If there were a bit of audio maybe something to tell the player that the turn is over would be nice. Overall good work!

There should be more games like this!

It's a cool, original idea, not really my cup of tea though, but evidently crafted with care, and seems to have quite a bit of depth.

The instructions seems to be a little bugged, they sometimes don't update (especially after building my first dock).

Pretty unique take on the theme, and very unique type of game. I got kind of stuck after a bit, but assumed it was because I skipped any instructions, so I didn't blame the game. :)

Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate your comments! The tutorial is missing a step (which is to go to another player's world in the ludumdare folder at, then build a building on one of their lands). We did not have enough time to include all the features we wanted to implement, but we will be adding a director's cut with how we pictured the game after the votation is over.

Many thanks again to you all for playing our ludum dare game!

Quite original game, but I wish I could skip the 10 seconds delay between each turn. Keeping a 10 seconds maximum for each turn + making the world change somehow each turn would be a good idea I think. I enjoyed it anyway, nice job.

original, I really like the discovery of the map :)

A bit Civilization-y; seems to be lacking a goal, though. You expand for a while, but then that's about it, yes?

Very cool, also I like how you used your web app in progress as the platform, I bookmarked that so I can keep up with it in the future.

Interesting take on the theme. I wasn't really sure what I was trying to accomplish though.

Very innovative entry, not sure why the dock looks like a chicken drumstick but other than that good job! :)

I really liked this game! You may want to try mine, as we approached the theme in a similar way ;-)

Pretty nice, and mostly the game feels original in its structure, at least as far as the ludum dare is concerned. It feels like it lacks some sense of challenge at the moment though.

Cool game, I like to play games of such kind. The only thing I didn't get yet - is there any kind of challenge in the game? Enemies?

Congrats on making a multi-player game! Once I read how to go into other lands and I unlocked my avatar, I enjoyed it a little bit more. But it does seem to be too easy. No real decision points other than build, build, build, burn, build,...

Seems like this has good potential to grow into something really interesting. It wasn't clear what I was supposed to be doing with the resources (if anything). There are a few feedback things that might help out - having the status of what's going on be more apparent would help, it took me a bit to notice it. Good work!

Interesting take on the world building type of game. Just felt like it petered out at the end. Would be interesting to see where it goes from here. The multiplayer aspect of it was really well done though.

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 ( 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.
