SpaceMailby Denisre3 - Jam Entry
My fisrt entry for Ludum Dare, a space mail delivery company simulator.
I made it in 48 hours and put it as a jam entry just in case I broke some of the compo rules.
The objective is to deliver mails to the different planets using your spaceships.
You can buy new ships, unlock the routes to new planets and buy upgrades to improve your spaceships.
You can earn money by delivering mails.
If the mails that a planet is waiting to send to another planet are more than 100, you lose.
Controls: Left click on a not bought planet, spaceship or upgrade to buy it(if you have the money).
Left click to an alredy bought spaceship to select it (alternatively you can use the number keys).
If a spaceship has landed on a planet, left click that planet while you have that spaceship selected to open the trade window. You can move mail from the ship to the planet by left clicking on the numbers on the left side, and from the planet to the spaceship by left clicking on those to the right side.
Right click to a planet to make you spaceship move to that planet(you can only move to planets connected to the one the spaceship is on and travelling takes time.)
Every planet has his color and the mails you have to send to that planet are of the same color.
Made in Processing.
Music by Bach (Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068).

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.
