Search for the ancient technology and make a fortune out of it!

Would be cool if you could dig up other ores to make money, to try and reach like legendary artifacts that improve your drill or something. Great work, keep it up!

Nice art! Good work. If you want continue working, here some ideas: collect the parts to upgrade your drill (more speed, hole wider...), needs to dodge/avoid enemies which hurt you, etc..

Yeah, the game can really benefits from upgrades and more replay value, but for a game made in so little time it's very good.

I only hope that this game is not inspired in any way from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann please xD

@Alkrimil
Interesting idea, we definitively consider a play>get money>updgrade>play again mechanic, but ended up ditching it due to time. Thank you for your kind comment!

@kokiriandco
Nice score, but you sure can do better after some nice alioli >:D

@Gordun
Thank you some much! Kudos to @jorjenz13 ;)

@cubotrox_toni
Thank for your comment and suggestions, Toni! A lot of people asked for upgrades, so we'll add something along the lines in the post-jam update ;D

@ccglp
goto previous comment about the upgrades and stuff hahaha
Thank you for take the time to play our little game!
P.D: About TTGL... actually it may be!?

Nice concept but i think that the game needs a clear objetive and more replayable value.

This seems quite unfinished. There's little to no challenge in drilling, even with the time pressure. Having a concept of money is suggestive of upgrades, but the game just resets after playing once.

The fundamental controls are pretty good, I'll give you that. But it's kind of like a sandbox rather than a game, as it is. Are you planning on taking this further post-jam?

It would be cool if drill momentum could reliably be kept when changing directions slightly. If you've got some speed going and try to shift left or right a bit you sometimes come to a full stop.

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. Many solo participants 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.
