Trader

by eremenion - Compo Entry

A web resource management game. You play against an ai to outlast the other. Trade to gain resources. Population is required to win the game. I plan on expanding on the game after the compo so please leave feedback and ideas, also if you experience bugs the source page has an issues section, post them there and I'll fix it post compo.

Intriguing. Reminds me of A Dark Room. I can't say this compelled me to play a long time, but it almost did!—I like the concept and I'm intrigued.

I expected more population to produce more wood... :(

I'd like to have an option to Request and Give different amount of goods, to avoid repetitive clicking.

Not bad, nice simple clicker game. Could not fully understand the concept, but I still enjoyed it! :D

Trader is cool, but you need to improve the gameplay - it's just click click click increasing my population, and?

I might try again later

Nice clicker game idea, would benefit a lot of nicer graphics.

Not sure what I was supposed to do. I found I could just request food from the empire over and over, until they were in the negatives, and then just sell a bit back to them to get my relationship back. I can see this game being a lot of fun, but it needs a fair bit more development to get to that point... :(

Seems a bit simplistic, but a cool concept.

I was terrified. These games are the bane of my life. I can't stop playing them.
I'm disappointed (yet thankful) there's not much to do.
Nice going none the less, and hope(dread) that you continue this.

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.
