Idle Civilisation

by ketzer - Compo Entry

Idle Civilisation is a simple incremental game in a very unfinished State.

Its about growing your population, gathering ressources, upgrading buildings and lots of clicking. It was made with html, css and javascript.
Sadly i was not able to finish what i started. Work time around 10hours.

I simply love idle games.
The presentation is nice.

I like the way you show how to unlock things with population size.

Water, Iron and Hunter are not implemented yet?

Too bad - would like to play more!

Nice game, keep going!

I was hoping to see the town grow and populate in the space above, but anyways it's a nice game!

Hey bro! It's been really cool having you over for the jam, I hope next we all make it to the end (maybe even together as a team). This game is a solid foundation for an idle-clicker-civ-builder game, nothing more and nothing less. I do like the few graphics you got there.
I recently discovered a similar game you probably don't know about yet which could give you some inspiration. Just google for "kittens game", but beware, it's pretty addictive. (well, like most idle games)
Anyway, good job and until next time!

There is something strangely attractive about clicking games. I can't help but want to gather resources, even if I don't know why I need them. I wouldn't complain if I got to play a more finished version of this concept some day. Keep it up. :)

It can be a great game of ecological awareness. Do not forget to finish it.

Nice interpretation of an idle game, what with having several resources.

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.
