Resource Operation

by someone - Compo Entry

Manage a small resource operation in enemy territory. Fend off attacks and try to mine as much as possible.

Unfortunately I failed to complete the resources and power systems in so it is not much of a game currently. You can build turrets and fend off attacks though.
Perhaps I'll submit a jam version, or a post compo version later.

Casually mining and then TANK RUSH, HOLY SHIT.

Yeah, that escalated quickly - my heart would thank you if the tank rush was timed a little more gradually!

Great work though - the aesthetic is really nice. I was making the sfx in my head though ;)

Hi there. Loaded but did not run, tried it a couple of times. Not rated.

Reminded me of a really fun SC2 mod. Nice done, I love this concept

I can see where this is going. Nicea idea, could use more execution

Like you say, not much of a game without a goal from the resources, etc. A good solid start, though. I would include the ability to place multiple things after clicking so you don't have to keep going back to the menu.

Very rough entry for but I definitely see the potential. The game looks very cool. Could imagine it'd be fun to play with some more polished (and complete) mechanics :D I like it

Interesting idea, too bad it isn't finished... I don't know how to vote it... The graphics are really well done an clear it the game was finished it might be fun too... We are waiting for full version somewhere then :)

This game can be very fun with a quick rythm and rules like resources management. Please make post LD full game and post it here ! :)

As you say the gameplay isn't finished. I like what you have though. The turret icon was missing from the build menu so I didn't know how to defend myself the first time.

interesting strategy game, visuals look nice, albeit too simplistic, also the enemy attacks are unexpectedly too fast. A better and more explicit tutorial would be great, nice effort

Dec 14, 2014 @ 7:21pm

I like the art it looked nice :D. But as for gameplay it took me a while to figure out how to shoot the enemy until I read the comments. The icon is invisible :o. Once i figured it out the game became really easy :p. overall a good start. You should try to finish it :D.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
