Little Town

by Wevel - Compo Entry

Second game for Ludum Dare, hopefully this is a bit better than last time.

If you find any bugs can you mention them in the comments because then i can fix them in a published version of this game.

Created with:
-Unity 3D
-Photoshop
-Audacity

Instructions:
-Click on the arrows on the scroll to go through basic info
-click continue to play
-help button will bring up scroll
-restart button will reload the game
-build button allows you to build the 6 different buildings
1)House it spawns a worker, if upgraded it will spawn more.
2)Research Building will generate research points which can be used to upgrade buildings, upgrading this will generate more points .
3)Stock Pile will store food, wood and stone the materials, upgrading it will store more materials.
4)Farm will generator food but needs a worker, upgrading it will generate more food and faster.
5)Tree will generator wood but needs a worker, upgrading it will generate more wood and faster (yes trees are buildings).
6)Boulder will generator stone but needs a worker, upgrading it will generate more food and faster.
-Move mouse over map after selecting a building to place and then click where you want it to be
-A worker will automatically be assigned to build it
-Clicking on a building allows you to turn it on and off, destroy it and level it up.
-You will need to upgrade buildings due to you being limited by the screen size as to the area you can build in (that's the link to the theme).
-If you run out of food people will die
-Try and build a big city without too many deaths
-Each person eats a food every time they finish 3 jobs
-A level 1 farm will provide food for 2 people other than its worker
-If you don't have enough farms compared to the number of workers you have you will still lose food, if this is happening either upgrade or get get more farms.

Sorry about the lengthy instructions.

As im writing this i can think of so many extra features that i should have added so I will probably try and turn this into a bit more of a finished game at some point, but have fun with this version.

This game was very ambitious! From only a few playthroughs I had trouble following which components of the game were connected. It's on the right track! I'd be interested to see what you could do with more time!

Great little game, it crashes whenever a lumberjack tries to switch jobs, but otherwise it's fun to play :)

This is an interesting game concept. I enjoyed playing; but I got confused fairly often and I had a problem with it crashing in linux

Has a lot of potential! I found it a little confusing, but interesting nonetheless!

Nice concept!

For some reason I wasn't able to get it running smoothly. The first few buildings were always built, but after a short time the workers seemed to stop building. I tried to keep wood up with trees, but the workers just didn't want to build. Maybe I didn't get something right :D

The sounds are nice, but the music gets a little depressing after some time. I didn't mute it, because it was quite fitting, but it is nice, that you provided proper adjustment methods for the sound.

The game is definetely on the right track! Nice work!

It's a bit confusing at first, but it's a nice game.

Good idea, I think it could be a cozy game to manage a town on one screen. - Tilman (from compo account)

Good idea. But the farm seems to remove food instead of producing it.

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. 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.
