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

Nice idea, too bad it isn't finished. Maybe add some "moral" choices, or things like that ;)

Throws Java exception for me when I try to run it...

I know this was only made in 24 hours, the graphics are pretty bad as-is, though I suppose it is understandable. I did like the decision making, but I felt like there wasn't enough involvement with the progression of the city, and I think there should have been more questions. Perhaps the ability to choose where walls and buildings are placed would be in a future build?

I liked the game idea, but the choices seem to be same every time?
"Do you want to hire luke skywalker?" of course I do!
*watch black box coming at your base* that...darth vader!? oh no!
*darth vader proceeds to bang himself against wall, wall crumbles*
*darth vader proceeds to bang himself against the tower, tower crumbles*
*darth vader proceeds to bang himself against your home doors, darth vader dies* you win!

Nice game. Too difficult though. Have to play through a few times to get a nice run going. Luke doesn't help much though.

It's a very good idea, I think it's really fun but it has some bugs. Keep working on it. Great Game!

I like the idea of building a castle piece by piece. Great use of the themes.

Cool concept and fits both themes. Obviously needs more work on it but there is definitely something there to work with.

It's a shame you didn't get enough time to completely finish this but based on what you've managed to do in just 24 hours it's a pretty decent effort. I like how you need to make use of your limited resources.

Encountered some bugs, like buttons not registering some clicks on them. As it currently is, it's only a concept, but if you decide to further work on it, it would be cool if the events would be slightly randomized instead of always the same to get some replayability. Just consider this will pose a challenge to balance. Also the text appeared very slow, skipping the text animation by clicking would have been nice.

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.
