Asteroid Tycoonby BadgerPriest - Jam Entry
ASTEROID TYCOON is a game about fast-paced autonomous asteroid mining. Experience first-hand the thrill of controlling a fleet of mining robots to extract resources from 5 asteroids for Asteroid Tycoon corporation!
Corporate doesn't have much faith in you though, so you have to start out with some pretty junky bots. Prove yourself by digging deeper to unlock new bots and upgrades. The deeper you dig in each asteroid, the cooler rewards you get.
Controls: Click a type of robot to build (or type the first letter), then click a target square for it to mine towards (upgraded bots become more precise). If a robot successfully reaches its destination, it begins performing its default action: exploring, digging, or harvesting, depending on the type of robot. You can also drag the spaceship to change the spawn location for robots. More features present themselves as the game continues.
Asteroid Tycoon was made by Alex Nisnevich (code, concept, SFX), Dmitry Mazin (interface, code, music), Greg Shuflin (code), Jimmy Hack (art, code), Jordan Arnesen (art, game design), Natasha Hull-Richter (code), and Tikhon Jelvis (code). Technologies used include EaselJS, Underscore, Pickle, and bfxr.

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.
