Natives Are Restless

IMPORTANT: Please read this description BEFORE you start playing, because this game unfortunely lack of any kind of tutorial

Your goal in this game is to collect 25000 credits from minerals on dying planet. You have one week do it before planet explodes. You can collect credits from unearthed minerals. When you click them, collector will be dispatched, and it will automaticaly collect minerals. When minerals deplete, collector will recycle, and you get refund. This planet is inhabited by aggresive monsters. You can only defend by using turrents.

I have to admit, I failed to implement many features that I planed, so game is basicly unfinished, unbalanced and buggy as hell, but it's playable, so I decided to upload it anyway. Unfortunely, for some reason, I didn't managed to build web version of this game, but I'll add it soon.


WSAD (or ZSQD for AZERTY owners) - Camera movement
1 - Turret building mode
2 - Turret selling mode
Left click (on minerals) - Dispatch collector

Fun little tower defense game. I'm not sure how the theme played into it at all other than that I have only one base. If I had limited money and only one collector, I would have to protect that one collector by building routes for him. As it is, though, I had plenty of money to cover the entire map in turrets.

Good start, although I got swamped by the purple things very quickly :P

This is my favourite type of game where you must slowly build up resources xD, it also follows me philosophy of "Every game is better when you add automatic turrets to it" xD High ratings from me<3

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.


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 ( 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.
