Wealth of Stations

by koredozo - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A space trader themed (i.e. as loosely 'connected worlds' as possible) take on the classic game Drugwars.

I intended to make it a little more interesting than it turned out, but as usual, my LD entry ended up as more of a barely surmountable personal challenge than a worthwhile game in its own right. Better luck next time?

* The game mostly controls with the mouse and left and right clicking. Try clicking on stars.
* Yes, the spaceship is drunk after warping. I couldn't do the math to orient it correctly.
* I composed music but wasn't able to record it except in intolerable quality. (Consider not sequencing your music within an emulator for a 20-year-old vintage computer that for some reason is unable to run at full speed.)

Very cool concept, but I feel that the interface is ill-conceived. Hard to work with, but a good concept anyway.

I like it. I only have one gripe with the interface, which is that it's very hard to find a particular planet once you've traveled away from it.

Nice concept. The interface is a bit wonky, and either I don't get the price system or it's borked :)

I expected to buy cheap at one planet, and sell where valuable. But when I warped back to the other planet the price was similarly low as the buy price.

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.
