Interplanetary Harvesterby Sestren - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Resources are dwindling, and it's up to the Interplanetary Harvester company to recycle old and dying planets into newer, better ones.
The harvester takes a tremendous amount of energy when harvesting, so be careful not to harvest too many planets low in resources or you'll run out of energy to harvest more.
When placing a planet in preparation for harvesting, you can combine the resources of one planet with another. Water tiles upgrade Magma, Rock, and Earth tiles one step (From Magma to Rock, Rock to Earth, and Earth to Foliage). Magma will always trump any non-Water tile it is combined with. Also, be careful not to flood Foliage tiles with more Water.
When you're ready to create a new planet out of old ones, hover the cursor over a planet-shaped area of tiles and click to harvest. The total value of the harvest will be added to your score, minus the cost of harvesting.

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.
