A Tale of Two Megacitiesby GAFBlizzard - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This game is a story about two space-age cities -- one on a planet, and the other on an artificial moon.
You play the role of a government official on the planetbound city.
As usual, I thought of an idea that was about 3 times too large for me to make. I had hoped to have more gameplay mechanics (such as trading between the planet and moon in the second half of the game), along with a lot more events to handle, and more political maneuvering to change your rank.
I also hoped to make an entire second mirror half of the game, perhap featuring an estranged brother, who is trying to work their way up in the moon government.
What I ended up making is silly and simple, but winnable and self-contained. Thanks in advance to anyone who pokes around at it!
*edit* I made one change to the upload at 12:49 a.m. EST, 08/25/2014, to fix a typo on the victory screen. I messed up alignment by 2 characters in the same fix, but that's life and I decided to leave it that way. :P

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.
