No Connected Worlds For Old Men

by WillysJerry - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A small endless strategy/puzzle game I made for the first time going solo for ludum dare.

It's been a tradition to name my games after movie titles and had trouble figuring out a good one for this game, ended up just picking a movie I liked (Kinda like how it sounds though).

Connect the worlds to prevent overpopulation.
Each world can hold a population of 10 people, The game is over if one of the worlds get overpopulated.
Each world can only connect to one other world at a time, right click a connection to remove it as long as noone is currently migrating along it.

Cool game, I would prefer a specific goal, like a duration. More feedback to know where the population will increase would be nice. Keep up the good work.

Awesome game! Exactly the kind of game I want to play. Very good gameplay, and the music is very atmospheric. Overall 5/5 would play again.

That music while you look at those people running from world to world is really relaxing :)

Cool game, but you have to make something that decreases population, so the game is never ending.

They idea is great and the game is polished with no bugs in my play. I just miss a win condition or something. Anyway well done :)

It was a cool game that used the theme very well. Very simple and straight forward, but entertaining. I had a problem with not being able to right click in order to remove connections, even though there was no ball passing over at the time. I was using the chrome web version, that could be the reason, unfortunately that limited my ability to play the game to its fullest extent, but from what I could see it was an overall good game with nice calming music and all right graphics.

This is somewhat analogous to my game I guess: )
Nice implementations 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.


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 ( 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.
