Magnum Opus

by Fellowship of The Game - Jam Entry

It’s an alchemy themed clicker game with a few easter eggs and we hope lots of fun (and hopefully no bugs \o/).

You are presented with a transmutation circle and some starter elements. Select one element in the circle and it’s info will appear in the left. Click the clickety rune to generate the selected element.

Generate enough elements to discover new ones. Upgrade your transmutation circle, put minions to work for you.

Our team comprises these very nice people:
Anayã Ferreira
Andréia Carpi
Kaue Ueda
Rafael Gallo

Fun game :)

kind of long ... hopefully I found the hint about what missing after some time

You should put a leaderboard in place and the winner should be the one that complete the board with the less click :)
I love the art :)

Really nice atmosphere but i didn't manage to create any workers ? I found a couple new runes but didn't go far beyond that because creating the new elements was taking a very long time.

Very relaxing and good music.

Apr 19, 2016 @ 9:43pm a lot of clicking. Not a terrible concept, but oh man does it require work on the index finger. It's also a bit random, in that you have to just kind of brute force large amounts of each of the starting elements before figuring anything out. Nice art though.

This is Incredible. I spent couple of hours on this game. It needs lot of click works at beginning, but when workers available, the game became more and more fun. Best game of LD35, I really love it.

Great stuff! I can happily inform it had kept me occupied all evening, haha! :) I really enjoyed the progressive system in it and the ability to just leave it running in the background once I had enough workers. To top it off it had a really nice atmosphere; I almost felt like an alchemist working on a Philosopher's Stone.

I spent a few hours on it, and doesn't reach the end. Good time eater. ;)

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.
