*requires download* Unity 4.6 doesn't have webplayer working? Download exe.

KiloWar is a multiplayer synchronous turn based strategy game. Each side gets some vehicle to conquer the relay stations in order connect them to their spawn world. They also attack other vehicles in war.

Most vehicles can move 4 squares and relay owned by one player will connect to other relays once they are conquered.

We broke a major rules of game jam a couple times.

* Dont use an unfamiliar tech.

But it was fun in the process! Having never done new UI, turn based locksteps, and unity's RPC networking, it was pretty time consuming for basic features but it is functional so hurrah.

I tried to play several times. First it didn't work somehow (I could neither move units nor end turn) and then it work after relaunch but I wasn't able to understand what's going on! I click single player but it seemed like I had to play both camp... Even trying to play both camps I failed to understand how to take control of resources and how to fight enemies...

Worked fine for me first time.
Nice hex grid and relatively straightforward interface. Some pretty good graphical work.
No sound whatsoever.
No instruction - not entirely sure how the mechanics of resource control and fighting work.
Art is entirely appropriate to theme of a military territory control game. Don't see any connection to "connected worlds" though.
Very hard to call it fun at this stage - needs more work on gameplay mechanics and a good tutorial.

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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.
