Territoris

by bvisness - Jam Entry

In Territoris, you are the ruler of a peculiar kingdom. Rearrange your kingdom by sliding rows and columns to move resources, build defenses, and repel attacking barbarians!

This is a rather ambitious first Ludum Dare submission for us! There are lots of interacting systems and features that we would love to build levels around. Maybe someday we'll keep working on this, but until then, let us know what you think!

I like the idea. I think it's pretty balanced too. Nice work!

Really great idea and a lot of fun! I think with some work you could turn this into an awesome mobile game!

An innovative idea that I would like to see developed. The controls were a little buggy.

Thanks guys! You do have to drag the rows and columns a little farther than I want but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Can you make a webgl export?

Interesting take on the theme mixed with some kind of Sliding Puzzle thing.
Took me a while to understand that tiles with markers on their corner were "locked" but otherwise, plays as it should and is quite challenging.

Can probably keep a lot of people who enjoy these puzzle games on mobiles nice and busy for during their subway trips if that's where you want to go with it :)

Kudos.

@sol_hsa We tried a WebGL export but it didn't work for some reason. We can possibly keep looking into it today...

It's like a sliding puzzle that had a baby with a strategy game! A like it a lot and the aesthetic is clean! I say continue working on this after the jam.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Awesome concept! I love it!
I found the controls a little weird. Never knew what I would be dragging over what.
Please continue to work on it!

Wow! What a great theme implementation. It took a while to find out how everything works together. Great experience!
I really missed the sound!

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.
