Use the arrows to move the general, and your allies will follow you. Then when you see a purple circle it will be a battle.

Nice idea, the game crashed with an exception when a large purple hit one of my minions?

It's a bit of a gamble, trying to eat a human. Certainly fun to build up an army :D

Original take on the theme! It was pretty fun and the mechanics worked well.

Nice concept, the gameplay is simple but effective.
Good job!

The Web version didn't work here, it froze Mozilla!
The Windows version didn't work as well, you might have forgotten a file with the .exe, it says: "There should be 'sakeo_Data' folder next to the executable"
Hopefully the WebUnity version worked on Mozilla!

The game is cool, took me a couple of time to understand the rules better, but then it was fun! A couple of notes:
- Considering the size of the map, I felt a bit slow. Traveling around would have been smoother for me at a higher speed.
- It would be cool if my units could teleport to me when they're stuck in trees out of the screen. I had to backtrack a couples of times to pick up them!
- I'm not sure I clearly understood the combat rules: I often lost units which were way bigger than the one attacking...? Maybe the random is a bit too high (just saying)

Overall, I enjoyed it :)

Cool idea, but I think you can do a lot more with this idea, because as it is the outcome - whether the humans fight or join - is a bit random.

I like the concept and followers, interesting twist. I like that you can "lose" an enemy by getting them stuck on a tree :D (since they change their state back or.. simply don't follow if not close enough - this is cool.). Of course that pretty pointless once I figured out how I'm actually supposed to play.

I got to 150 humans left before I lost the will to find more. So maybe could use dirt paths to connect the towns to have less random wandering, or an arrow indicator of nearest village. Or maybe the camera zooms out when your army is bigger? Maybe just a less big game since it gets kind of repetitive after a while?

Still really neat idea and good feedback for human death.

Cool unique idea, and very clean art!

Could be helpful to have some kind of indicator of how many more hits you and your minions can take before dying, if that's how it works, anyway. Is it just luck? It's hard to tell.

Sometimes it feels a little too hard to find the tiny humans. There are quite a few dull moments where I am just wandering aimlessly looking for easy battles.

But overall good job! I like the style and it's quite satisfying when you get another person on your side.

Did you just used CIV V logos? :P
otherwise i like the concept of gathering and expanding, but I didn't know that my "hero" could die as easily.
The web link is bumpy and it crashed my browser on several occasion, but other than that i enjoyed it. There is no limit on the map so once i got out of the forest i was kinda lost :P maybe you could put invisble walls or something :)
Wish to see more of it. keep up!

Interesting concept. Takes a while to get used to your own unit's movement. The graphic elements are decent, it would be nice to see more along the lines of a background. Audio is pretty good. Overall fun entry, good job!

Mini Submission FAQ

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.
