Trench Warby rjhelms - Jam Entry
A real-time strategy game of World War 1 era trench warfare. The catch is that, in the chaos of battle, you can't control units directly - just issue orders, and hope that someone follows them in time.
Get 8 soldiers over the top to defeat the enemy.
Machine Gun: suppresses enemy fire around it, but also can damage friendly buildings and units.
Mortar: Breaks enemy morale, reducing the duration if incoming barrages and increasing time between them.
Medic Station: Heals soldiers in an 8-tile radius.
Trenches: Provides cover and safe passage for soldiers.
Walls: They're walls. They stop bullets, but also people.
Sentry: Orders a unit to hold a position for a brief period of time. Useful for trying to get soldiers to take cover in the face of enemy fire.
Charge: Orders a unit to climb out of the trenches and attack the enemy. This will provoke the enemy into heavy fire!

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.
