Great game, but you should add achievements and quests to build a settlement.

It's really cool to see someone put together a SimTower like game in 72 Hours. The controls were a bit clunky (only a handful of my clicks would actually take effect and right clicking seemed to be more effective but still not reliable). Also, some explanation of how the game works in the description would be helpful.

One other note, your judging categories look like they are reversed (it's showing the categories you didn't implement rather than the ones you probably wanted to keep). I didn't rate the game as a result. If you fix it later, I will come back and vote properly.

I think your voting categories are the wrong way around?

Wonderful game, but some kind of tutorial would be nice.

Really great use of zoom as the game progresses, and a pretty solid mini-SimTower over all. Would love to have seen it expanded even further!

Pretty slick camera and graphics work that all fits within the theme. Peaceful clouds help out too.

It's a bit slow and at first there seems to be no correlation with what the npcs are doing and your money, but after time they do go into the rooms.

Maybe that could be tied a little stronger like show money coming from what generates it and when it happens.

Made me remember of an old pc game I played a lot called Sim Tower.

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.
