Worlds Together

by mklee - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Two worlds rely on each other for survival. One world grows slowly in peace, the other feeds on destruction to survive. Keep both worlds alive for as long as you can in this precarious relationship.

Gameplay: On the left, click on asteroids to protect the planet. On the right, click on ships to prevent them from leaving. The left planet grows slowly over time. The right planet shrinks without debris from the left.

Note: The jam entry is incomplete missing audio, polish, and a true ending. Thanks for playing!

Not exactly a finished game, but I like the concept. If you could expand upon it to make it less confusing perhaps it could be something great. As it stands I still feel that more could have been done on this even within 48 hours, but I like that you focused on putting quality into what you did end up making.

Good attempt!

It is nice, the mecanic is good, maybe a missed ship could destroy (shrink) the left asteroid without creating debris?

Interesting concept. Really simple but not bad. starts off a bit slow but pretty good overall. You should take the project a little further. Nice entry :)

Interesting concept, I think it would really hit more strongly if the give and take between the planets were more clear. Maybe if there were more give and take systems between the planets that you slowly figured out?

Pretty neat concept! I imagine peaceful piano music being played along with a game like this. Also took me a while to figure out that I needed to mess up to spawn the 2nd world.

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.
