Doom, Death & Destruction (Tycoon)

by WhoIsNoahGames - Jam Entry

Let's start with the idea for our game:

People are living peacefully in a fantasy world because the heroes have successfully conquered the whole continent. You take the role of a villain monster spirit that has to cause doom, destruction and death. Gain power by causing chaos and create more powerful threats to take over the world!

And now what is actually happening:

Villagers walk out of the village to gather resources. You can create Monsters (very agressive Bunnies) and place them on the resource fields to attack villagers trying to gather there. When villagers gather enough food they'll reproduce. More villagers mean more victims! Kill all villagers to finish the game.

Right Mouse Button -> Deselect something

Great music and graphics, wonderful take on the theme and an excellent effort for 3 days.

Fun concept but had some problems selecting the units.
Also, you might want to disable the web context menu when using the right mouse button to deselect. You can change this in the build settings for web.

Best Bunny Destruction Simulator I ever played.

The audio is really top notch and suits the feel of the game. I feel like the UI could be just a bit bigger/clearer for those of us on higher resolutions. The text was unfortunately unreadable for me without squinting. Really quality effort though :)

I may have simply been doing everything wrong, but I could not figure out how to spawn units in my few minutes with the game. There was some buy unit text but it does not seem to do anything.

The basic web version just didn't work for me, I couldn't read the text and it was having trouble scrolling with the mouse. The WebGL version for some reason was much better. It's a nice concept, the UI text is a bit unreadable, I had to work out what the buttons were by using them. I can see a lot of potential in the idea, and the zones are an interesting mechanic for a real-time strategy game.

Incredible strategy game. I like the map of the town and the gameplay. Nice entry!

Really excellent production (tiny text aside)! It took me a minute to realize my spawned units were in the bottom corner!

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 ( 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.
