Ludum Dare 34 — December 11th-14th, 2015 — Theme Tied: Two Button Controls, Growing

NOTE: Because of the Theme tie, we allowed everyone to pick either Theme. Using both was optional. To keep things simple, there will still only be one Theme category. Every category in Ludum Dare voting is an opinion, so you’re welcome to rate them as you see fit. But we encourage you to be fair in your scores to people that chose only one Theme, and not both.

ALSO: Itch.io has an experimental game downloader over here. You may find it useful.

What We Do

by Graydom - Compo Entry

You play as the creep. An alien fluid alone, but not for long. With your "expert" RTS skills the creep can take over the planet(because you know, its an alien its just what they do) by destroying the enemy city and their defenses.

Witness amazing sophisticated fluid simulation that is %100 accurate all of the time, looks exactly like it does in real life, don't question it.

Battle against an AI so sophistacted that it will someimtes(rarely) ascend from our plane of existence and no longer take part in our mortal endeavors, somehow.

Play on a battleground that is different everytime. With gulfs and valleys like you will have literally never seen before.(No Sarcasm here, its actually pretty cool)

Instructions are in game.


Known Bugs:
Collectors turning invisible(they are still there, but invisible)
Water no longer dsiplaying growth(presumed to occur when collectors are placed with an adjacent side to spawners) Edit 1:It appears this can be solved by placing an additional spawner.

@GeeItSomeLaldy
Yeah, I couldn't uplaod it to the site that I ahve done before(kongregate) just because of the chrome changes with the unity plugin, so it is a download, for the html file itself.

The music was really annoying, to be honest.
Also, I didn't really know what to do, even after reading the instructions. I felt like the controls were unresponsive.

Liked to play it but it was pretty to understand logic and strategy.

The game didn't really make a lot of sense - the tutorial was a wall of text, the controls were unresponsive (I was able to have a green block following my mouse!), there didn't seem to be any AI whatsoever, nor multiplayer, and there didn't seem to be that much to it. I think it really needs some work before it becomes something playable, and then some more to make it enjoyable.
It seems like you had an idea, and you went half way towards implementing it, so well done on that front.

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.
