When I figured out you could pan the selection to unlock more and more creatures, my mind was blown

deathray says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 4:57am

Wow, I have a little trouble figuring out why it's fun, but it is! High points for Fun and Humor! I want this game on my Android.

deathray says ...

The angel saying that I found finish the game at the beginning makes me want to do it even more. :) challenge accepted! I almost have my first duck.

Funny and addicting! Just like Cookie Clicker, I can't stop clicking!

Ah a time stealing game :). Loved it.

Therrato says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 3:24pm

seems like a decent working game. would be nice if there would be some boxes arround the lists of items that indicate you can scroll.

Therrato says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 3:36pm

but save does not work in web

Dec 17, 2013 @ 4:50pm

Fun ^ _ ^ i like this game

Gabriel says ...

LOVED IT! :D

Dec 17, 2013 @ 7:26pm

first of all: thank you all for giving it a try! I`m VERY happy to see you liked the game. It means a lot.

second: thanks for the feedback.

third: replies:

@deathray: nicely put, it is indeed hard to find out about that both achievements and the creatures list are scrollable. I will build an extra version correcting this as an enhanced edition

@Therrato: not saving? hmmmm i must fix it promptly. it is a game about time after all. also, about the scroll indication, see comment above

BEST GAME EVAR

Dec 19, 2013 @ 2:35am

Great Job. I love clicking games. Probably too much

Side Note: Since you used Unity I suggest making a Linux build. The Web player does not work on Linux boxes.

netguy204 says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 2:50am

Wow. Wow.... Wow. This is total brain dope. :) It's still running and I'm eagerly awaiting my opportunity to get a ... red blob thing so I can get $14 per arbitrary time unit.... I've been totally skinner boxed and my brain likes it.

Great music, sound, graphics. Disturbingly effective psychology... makes me feel rather like a primate.

brmassa says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 3:12am

LukeR: thanks

LastResortGames: yep. I will do this. Nice tip.

netguy204: the CRAB! (yes... the pixelART is a bit abrastract :p). Just remember that God also felt this way when creating all things. He played this game for six days... than rested ;)


THANKS ALL (i will try to play your games in return!)

Dec 19, 2013 @ 4:02am

Nice game, the finition is really great. Really addictive !

brmassa says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 4:39am

archaeometrician, thanks. Analytics shows people really spend quite time on it. I will write it in a couple of days.

Croze says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 4:43am

I played for soooo long

JaymeeMak says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 5:42am

So this is really quite similar to Cookie Clicker, which has been making the rounds recently. It's a nice implementation of the concept, though!

doitle says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 5:42am

Would it be possible get a windows distribution of this for those of us without the Unity plugin?

flatgub says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 5:52am

o.o
This music, its beautiful...
I want it...
I cannot rate it enough stars!
Also great game!

burlapjack says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 6:06am

Super addictive. And dat music. Awesome, y'all.

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 6:16am

@croze, yep, it can go insane high numbers

@JaymeeMak, yep. I heard about it when i told a friend about the idea. It definitively would inspired me with some ideas. thanks!

@doitle: the Win version does not need it. Just download and play. See the download link at Gamenific site.

@flatgub: yep, i confess the music is really great. Thanks for the complements.


THANKS ALL AND KEEP CREATING!

AMSmirnov says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 6:36am

Wow! It's great. I clicked so much, and I like it!

Blooperly says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 6:44am

I will definitely NOT compare this to another cookie-based game. Great job though, I love idling games!

yosh says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 6:44am

Really addictive, as others mentioned before me, it reminded me of cookie clicker too ^^
Great humor and excellent music... I wish it was possible to progress without having to click like crazy all the time :D

30dogs says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 6:50am

I don't really get the connection to the theme, but wow, this is beautiful. The music rounds it out so nicely and the whole thing is just lovely and relaxing and...addicting! Great work, you really know how to make an inviting game.

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 7:08am

@AMSmirnov: i bet your mouse hates me!

@Blooperly: yep. one main mechanichs was to design something that you play very broad time scale. Nice you liked it.

@yosh: yep. after people telling me about this cookie clicker I had to check this out. and yes, similar mechanics. It would be a great inspiration if i knew this before :) I wish it was possible to DEVELOP it without clicking like crazy too :P

@30dogs: well... when i saw the theme i tought: SH#T! What im going to do. Turns out to be a present in the games`s UNIverse kinda theme and the main mechanics: clicking is the only action to make! :D


The Panda says a good night!

funselektor says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 7:29am

That reminded me of Cookie Clicker, it started to become addictive so I had to stop :)

Ryusui says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 7:32am

I had to put this down after a couple minutes of play because otherwise I'd be stuck on it for hours. o_o

joe40001 says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 8:08am

Very good game to be made in short amount of time, I'd say it lacks the cookie-clicker balance. Also save doesn't work on web, but still a cool game.

Maybe if you wanted to take this game further you would play up the creation aspect and instead of cookie clicker's rain of cookies players would instead see a evolving image of the world/universe they are creating.

Very well done though.

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 8:18am

@funkselektor: pray pray pray!!!!

@Ryusui: imagine stuck for 3 days during the development!

@joe40001: WOW, thanks for the feedback and insights! I will definitively take them into account when expanding the game later. It of course had to be very concise due the time constrain, but it seems to be a candidate for an extra love.

BEST REGARDS TO ALL. and remember to pray before bed.

Ithildin says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 11:56am

Although the type of game is no my cup of tea...I can't stop!! >_<
Amazing level of polish, by the way, music is fantastic.

Congratulations!

netguy204 says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 1:30pm

I am now deeply ashamed to report that I have made it to humans!

doitle says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 8:58pm

I can't believe how many hours I've spent playing this... Excellent work. I think you've got a hit on your hands.

Dec 19, 2013 @ 10:43pm

Sound effects are well-made and appropriate, music is FANTASTIC, lots of lovely graphical sugar though I noticed the boarders of the inventory seemed a little bare. The game kept me clicking for a good while but... honestly, jesus, I couldn't give two fucks about these sorts of games. BUT! It looks like a really well-made version of this sort of game within the three days! Well done! =)

scriptorum says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 1:27am

Very addicting. Nicely put together. A bit similar to Cookie Clicker. Great music.

I cheated a little bit XD my first impressions

deathray says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 3:24am

Save doesn't seem to work. :(

jacklehamster says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 5:14am

Pretty engaging, but one nice thing would be to see some creatures you purchased roam around on a planet.

The Evil Cult says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 7:36am

WHY!? Oh god why..? I already have had cookie clicker and clicking bad open for weeks and now I get this. The girlfriend joke made me lol (not easy to do). Sound is a bit of an issue as you have noticed, also the window size looks like it was obviously made for a phone and was a bit difficult/frustrating to work with on PC. Other than that good work :)

lotusgame says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 8:35am

Excellent music and graphics ! I don't like this kind of game, but i saw how well you refined it ! Fantastic job :)

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 9:08pm

@Ithildin: thanks. i could only dedicate a bit more in graphics and music because of the simplicity of the game ;)

@netguy204: dont be! some friends asked if it would be possible, due the absurd cost. They played and played once i told yes, you can! :P

@doitle: wow! thanks! I`m definitively planning to expand it to a whole new level. LD scope forced me to do just the basic mechanic. I will let you know the updates!

@Reverend Speed: I appreciate your comments. All sound effects and music were made using free tools, just took a while to tweak them. I was aiming to a totally different art direction but by monday morning it was clear that it was impossible. The final result is a mix.

@Scriptorum: Yep. i agree. thanks :)

@DanielSnd: sorry to see that you did not get the game :P Still it is very rewarding to see someone else playing your game. I confess that the whole user interaction is a bit dificult. I could not determine but just looking if you were playing the windows or web version.

@deathray: Oh no!!! you are right, it seems it is broken :( I WILL make a enhanced edition this weekend. It will work, its a promise!

@The Eve Cult:Hehehehe the whole angel random talking was a last minute thing. Couple hours before submitting the game, I realized that, without an tutorial, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to understand. So i programmed the feature. It took me no seconds to imagine some random crazy chit chat. It is hard to think in 40+ funny jokes to avoid repetition. :P good to hear you liked.

@lotusgame: just in the middle of the development i discovered "this kind of game" existed. I liked but I see and opportunity to give it some more than clicks. I will give CreatorSST a total remake in the future with more meat.

jdpalmer says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 9:50pm

Deceptively addictive! Good work on the graphics and pacing of the game.

Erkberg says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 11:52pm

I just love idle games and this is a really well made one, good job!

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 21, 2013 @ 3:06pm

@jdpalmer: thanks. it took a lot of work tweaking

@Erkberg: thanks



As usual: all games commented here played and rated back!

Zephyr Raine says ...
Dec 21, 2013 @ 9:51pm

It off course reminds me of Cookie Clicker, haha. This is a good game anyway, but I hardly see the link with the theme, tbh.

Lacutis says ...
Dec 21, 2013 @ 10:37pm

I liked this entry, borrows a lot from cookie clicker but still cool.
Good job, pretty fun!

leparlon says ...
Dec 21, 2013 @ 10:52pm

WHY.SO.ADDICTING?
MAKE ME STOP!
AHHHH.
Good job! Top marks for graphics, fun and audio.
I think you may need somekind of indicator that there are more creatures to the left (maybe as simple as increasing the spacing a few pixels, so the 3rd creature gets a little cut off)
Great entry.

leparlon says ...
Dec 21, 2013 @ 10:53pm

Right, I meant right!

davisan says ...
Dec 21, 2013 @ 10:54pm

Wow, very addictive and the presentation is very good!

Senevri says ...
Dec 22, 2013 @ 6:58am

<VBG> Worked for me :D

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 22, 2013 @ 10:09am

@Zephyr Raine: thanks man.

@Lacutis: thanks too. I am glad you liked it!

@leparlon: hahaha i cannot make this stop. Its beyond even me! Im working on a enhanced edition with bug fixes and attacking stuff told me. It is going to be one of them! ;)

@davisan: addictive isnt it? thanks for the comments

@Senevri: good! return when i finish the game update.

Senevri says ...
Dec 22, 2013 @ 1:40pm

Return? I'm still playing.

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 22, 2013 @ 3:37pm

great graphics, good job!

Sebastian says ...
Dec 23, 2013 @ 7:18am

Spent a lot more time playing this than I intended, nice work ;)

Lythom says ...
Dec 23, 2013 @ 8:09am

Hi, here is is some feedback !
The good points :
- addictive
- clean graphics
- music
- general atmoshphere
- button smash !!!!!
What imo could be improved :
- indicator to notice possible scrolls (I though I had only 3 creatures at start !)
- very slow progression
- game universe : A god gathering dollars ?! Could be more consistent with "belief points" are whatever would be valuable for a god or for life creation.
- coin sounds : I recognize a great effort there, but it still end to be annoying ^^

Overall good and please, thanks for the game =)

hbocao says ...
Dec 23, 2013 @ 10:20am

I hate games like this. Why? Because it sucks the life out of you. But I'm stronger! I'm not clicking. Nuh uh...[hours later] YESSS! COINS!

Jokes aside, very nice entry. I like the music because it makes the game very relaxing while you're frenetically clicking.

Zerkruemler says ...
Dec 23, 2013 @ 4:18pm

Cool Music. Funny little game. The user interface is however quite bad.
Keep on the good work.

Bruno Massa says ...
Dec 24, 2013 @ 12:54am

@mcapraro: thanks!

@Sebastian: is it a shame to confess that it was the intention?

@Lythom: WOW thanks for the feedback.
* the scrolling problem is a recurring feedback. I kinda fix this on a enhanced edition im building.
* slow is good or bad? it`s designed to be a very long game, requiring several hours to get the last characters... :p
* coins or "prays": theming the game was a problem. I had a rule to always go forward. i thought about doing a pray energy, but rapdly i realized that is too abstract. I decided to do the coin then :/
* coin sounds were made in brfx. its difficult to extract a mario coin sound :P
but really really thanks for all comments.

@hbocao: henrique, valeu. elas sao mesmo mais tranquilas. Tinha de ser ne, pois o jogo eh extenso... ;)

@Zerkruemler: thanks man! yep, the interface is subject of constant feedback. I will give it the proper work soon and relaunch the game. :)


THANKS ALL

dudsen says ...
Dec 25, 2013 @ 6:41pm

Ok cool stuff, but I cant play it for longer than 2 min. I got off cookie clicker recently and cant get into the next thing again :D
No worries, you guys get a good rating from my side ;)

loxo says ...
Dec 26, 2013 @ 11:10pm

Nice game with great audio. I like the simple and unique game concept. Would be nice if there were less waiting involved, it took me some time to create the last kind of creature. And I was disappointed that iddqd didn't do anything.

Dec 28, 2013 @ 7:36pm

don't know why but this is the most addictive game in ld48

recursor says ...
Jan 4, 2014 @ 6:47pm

Cookie Clicker? Is that you? For some reason, this is hard to stop playing.

Bruno Massa says ...
Jan 4, 2014 @ 11:41pm

@dudsen: yet. it seems people have love-hate reaction to it. Thanks for playing and having the patience to write a feedback.

@loxo: waiting is kinda part of the design. It of course need some balacing.

@Andreas Brandt: THANKS! It's a bit of shame to confess that it was kinda the intention :P

@recursor: hell no! i'm divine! :P thanks for playing. i means a lot.

Jan 5, 2014 @ 8:30am

Nice idea! The graphics weren't so cool but the music is great! Auto saving didn't work for me in the web version.

FrederickK says ...
Jan 5, 2014 @ 12:19pm

Well, it is the cookie-clicker-game.
The graphics are very nice and the sounds good too!
Well done! :)

steamgirl says ...
Jan 5, 2014 @ 4:07pm

Wish there was a way to mute the sound so I can have it running in the background. Other than that, great game! I've recently gotten into idle games so this is right up my street. Totally addicted. Some of the humour was maybe a bit too self-referential for my taste - eg some guy called Bruno (presumably the creator) and girlfriend not liking the game, but that's really minor. Overall great entry!

Bruno Massa says ...
Jan 6, 2014 @ 8:37am

@denis Chakarov: I did what I could in the 2D space due not being an artist. The saving bug I know... I'm really sorry. I 1ill fix this today, if it counts!

@FrederickKK: thanks. the objective here to to entertain. nice to know you liked it

@steamgirl: the sound, yes... I wrote about this few days after the competition. I will create a mute button. About the jokes, I must agree with you. It was a last minute decision to insert constant jokes, so i could think too much about it.

Cake&Code says ...
Jan 6, 2014 @ 7:19pm

Not entirely sure how it relates to the theme, but it really is quite addicting!!! I think the choice to put it on android is smart, since this game (with a little bit more polish) could really be the next addictive mobile game. :) Great work!

Bruno Massa says ...
Jan 6, 2014 @ 11:59pm

Zeik/Cake: first of all, I'm a fan of your work. The very first thing that came to my mind about "you only get one" was a UNIverse. Also, the playr does only ONE thing all the time... :P

Currently the game is concurrent to my other project Picubic, so I could not give it a right attention, even during the jam. But thanks a lot for your comments.

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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.
