Smash the Rebels!

by michel94 - Compo Entry

This game is about destroying a peasant rebelion and protecting your farms from the rebels' anger!
You can only see inside of a small window, that you move with the mouse, and when you click, you kill all the peasants inside of it.

It is made with the LÖVE framework, and can be run executing the .love file, with your love executable. It runs on Linux, Windows and MacOS.

Nice work! Really difficult, too! If I were to make this into a full game I would maybe add ways to build more farms and/or reduce the fog.

Great idea! Had much fun :) Could use some sound to provide some hints where to go next. Also missing a display of the survived time at "Game Over".

Awesome play on the concept. It's definitely a lot more stressful to play than I thought it would be. Th one gripe I have with it is that I can also damage my own farms by clicking them.

Otherwise, it's a really great concept and a fun game. Great job!

Nice idea. I was a bit confused however that clicking also seemed to damage my farm, if visible. Or the peaseant had quite a large range.Very hard game. But that's not a bad thing ;)

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.
