You are alone. There are others that seek to destroy you. You must find them. You must kill them.

Idea:
You are alone in space with the isolated bases of various enemies surrounding you. You must find their bases, connect yours to theirs, and take over.

Controls:
1 + Click/Drag: Select Ships
2 + Click/Drag: Select Tanks
Z + RMB: Build Platform
X + RMB: Build Solar Panel
C + RMB: Build Refinery (Can only be build on asteroids)
V + RMB: Build Turret
B + RMB: Build Radar
N + RMB: Build Base (Spawn builders)
M + RMB: Build Hangar (Spawns Ships)
, + RMB: Build Factory (Spawns Tanks)

IMPORTANT:
There is no AI implemented for this game. Singleplayer is just a sandbox. For best experience, play the game over LAN with friends.
ALSO IMPORTANT:
Internet play may be possible, however I was not able successfully test it. Multiplayer over LAN does work, however.

This looks really neat, I'll have to try to find someone to play it with. Kinda reminds me of an old game I really like called Moonbase Commander.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to play this with more players. I like the concept, but I have no idea what the combat is like.

I had troubles trying to play single player as the instructions weren't too clear on how to build stuff. I know the controls are laid out, but I didn't know building stuff cost ores or power.

The controls are quite confusing and contra-intuitive. For instance, the right-clicking does a lot more than the left-clicking. I guess this is more designed for left-handers, but setting mouse preferences in-game is always a chore. I'm glad there is a list of controls during the game for my convenience.

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.
