Ennemies are killable
Added explosion effects
The gun doesn't stop working for no reason
Feedback on firing the gun and taking dammage
Better sound design
Obviously there's still a lot we could make to improve the game and maybe someday we will, but this is the version we imagined the game should have looked like at the end of Ludum Dare. Hope you enjoy playing it.
Here's all the link for the post-jam version

Known issue : The webplayer version currently doesn't update the leaderboard. We hope to fix it very soon. In the meanwhile, if you want your score to show up we recommend you try one of the standalone versions depending on your operating system from the links that are available just above.

About the game :
You are Jorg. Your great cannon is the only thing protecting the great nation of Orgullia against deadly invaders from the outside.
Keep your cannon fully loaded by selecting the correct ammo types from the loader. Keep your nozzle clean at all times if you don't wan't to jam and be sure the pressure never runs too low !
You will have to move around from station to station if you never wan't your gun to stop firing.
Do your job well and Orgulite culture will be grateful for your service.
Loading : The three buttons on the ground allow you to chose your ammo types. Input commands by jumping on the pads using SPACE (A for 360controller).
Cleaning : Jump on the button to stop firing and open the door. Go into the cannon to start cleaning automatically. The longer you stay inside the cleaner it will be.
Pressure : Activate the pressure valve once using Lctrl (A for 360 controller) to start building up pressure. Press Lctrl again to close the valve. Be mindful of the latency.
Tickers all around provide information about ennemy waves. Certain ammo types work better for certain ennemies.

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.
CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.
If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.
CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.
CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.
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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.
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.
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.
