-- UPDATE --

BUGFIX; weapon was not changing when it was supposed to.

-- DESCRIPTION --

Help to protect THE FORGE by creating powerful weapons to FIGHT against the orcs. UNLOCK new materials and try new weapons to defeat your enemies!

-- OFF TOPIC --

Okay; this time I had a hard work, very ambitious and complicated project, I worked amost every hour in those days, but I'm really happy with the result.
Sorry for some bugs, it was really difficult to create the forge system. By the way, the enemies weapons were made using the forge hehe

I hope you guys like it as I do! And THANK YOU FOR MAKING LUDUMDARE GREAT =D

This is a great concept! I mean like really good!
I had quite fun making a weapon. But changing doesn't seem to change them which made me sad as I couldn't test out the gold material. I'm still not sure why I should use stone lol
(Sometimes the sound doesn't load when starting the game)

Ahh I see I just played the fixed version for a bit.
Had fun but still I wasn't able to get the last material even though I killed over 40 enemies. Also I got stuck once

@Pusty
Nice to see that you enjoyed and got 40 kills, I know about those two bugs and I'll be fixing them in the future.
Thanks for the feedback =)

For some reason I can't download a game. Any time I press Download - it just refreshes the page.

None of the three links seem to be working for me. Will come back later and try again.

This is a very interesting idea! But I'm not sure how the game calculates the damage, seems kind of weird to me, I once started clicking randomly and created a fan like blade that could one hit kill enemies. Also since the forge doesn't restrict the shape of the polygons you can draw impossible shapes that doesn't make sense.

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.
