a simple game about building a colony on a moon. balance your infrastructure and react to meteor showers.

difficulty level is pretty low at the moment but let me know what you think. I should put some kind of victory condition i think.

Very atmmospheric and moody game. The sounds are great and the graphics are even greater. i found it quite hard to read the typo but after a few minutes i somehow felt more comfortable with it. It took me some time to figure out what to do (the dependencies between the buildings and stuff) but that was also the fun part. Good job!

The graphics are absolutely great! I luv this style. But the font is unreadable. I would like to play it much more, but its too exhausting to read.

Loved the feel and the concept, but the same glitch happend twice, I think it happens when you select 2 buildings to build or when the first one you picked becomes unavailable.

At some point I felt like upgrading the solar cells didn't do anything. Looks and sounds very nice. Well done.

Graphics are really cool, I like your style !
Even if it's not my type of game, it was fun trying to improve my planet and get a lot of ressources :)

Very nice graphics. I tried something similar. I think you really made something of the theme beyond just taking it as a constraint. Would like to play an expanded version of this.

Liked the graphic style, looked sorta like FTL. Found a glitch where you can select multiple buildings to place at once and it wouldn't let you deselect them or place them.

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.
