NEEDS SOUND! I cannot stress this enough, I really enjoyed this game really loses something by not having sound.

The graphics were pretty cool for the first world (bug people yeah!) but after that the programmer art gets... bad.

The interface was kind of jarring at first, with the way dialogue worked etc. But once I got into it I was actually enjoying myself.

@buttsteam thank you!

Haha yea, I should have! I grew up not being able to listen to my games, so it's really something i need to think about specifically and remember to include! Thanks!

Yeaa i got really into it at first but i didn't really have a lot of time (or sense of scope). I got to the last hour and realized I only had one level! I was determined to at least enter something,so i wanted to add something to make it "connected worlds"

Yea don't even get me started on the ui haha

But thank you very much! You probably won't see this, but i appreciate the comment!

Changing background colors and swapping out NPC graphics on each progressive stage is a pretty basic way to execute the theme. (Really, this game is much more "Resource Gathering" than "Connected Worlds")

However, despite the loose connection to the theme, I always have enjoyed these types of games. I played through the whole thing, and had fun doing so. Good job on that end.

Fun little game, but I don't see how it fits the theme regardless of the little explanation at the end. I find the challenge actually decreases as you move on to the next worlds probably because the money carries over. I was hoping for more obstacles like lava, rocks, or something that'll hurt me or block my way. Very nice game overall though!

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.
