It didn't understand immediately that the numbers on planets are the resources, and that they where a different thing from the number of ships, especially since a ship cost exactly one resource.

Once this was understood, I finally managed to defeat efficiently my opponents and had a lot of fun, good job !

Even if the concept is copied so much, I really spent too much time playing this, because it just plays flawlessly! Good game!

Some fun strategy in this, it really hooked me for a while. Good work on making competent AI for it as well! Just wish it had some audio, but this is a really cool concept.

Really fun and addictive, thought I was having input issues until I re read the rule about the 20 requirement would have been cool to have a little feedback there but otherwise awesome game !!

I love these kinds of games. Nice execution, simple and fun. And the strategic elements really sold me on this one. Props!

It was fun until all neutral planets were conquered. Then it got stuck in a stalemate for a really long time.

I know it's GalCon, but it's pretty fun!

Really cool game! I wish the controls were a little bit clearer as it is a bit unintuitive to send / cancel sending units. Other than that, very nice entry!

Feels like galcon, whish is a good thing. Wish I could send more ships at once, though. Made the gameplay get a bit boring as it went on.

Very relaxing game play and a lot of fun. A familiar concept with a nice twist. Great work.

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.
