Guild Inc

by Ping78 - Competition Entry

You just established your workshops in the city. Now you only need profit. To make profit you know you can make goods and sell them in the market and you are known to be a good trader but that does not stop people from trying to make the stupidest deals which sometimes could give a lot of profit or crack a smile in your face. Now making goods by yourself you know is a bad idea and that's why you hire workers and assign them to your workshops. Though sometimes you make some goods for yourself to not lose your skills. You only wish that you could research something new, but you didn't have the time to build a research shop, at least not yet.

Really nice entry for a 48h game.
You have a lot's of items to buy/sell/build, but I think it's too much. The thing is, every objects leads to the same gameplay. If you have enought money, buy 25/50/100 to make the price go up, then sell everythings to make the price drop.
I didn't see the deals page at first but I think that would be a good idea to focus a little more on these deals and make the price more stable when you buy/sell goods.

I agree with @Hero7785, I'd love to try it out but I don't do flash-plugin.

I'm with the others here. The screenshots look really nice but I'd like either a desktop build (linux or windows) or at least webgl.

So after watching your impressive timelapse of the game being made I decided to play it. And so I did play it... and played it... and ended up dumping some hours into it for some reason. So I'm pretty sure I won it (as much as one can). Here's where I got to (take a note of my score):

W00t! It took a lot of clicking and a good deal being offered but I think that's going to be a high score that will be tough to beat! lol

Great game, very impressive for a 48hr compo entry. Technically the game could've allowed you to buy/sell in bulk or include a win condition but honestly I don't care. I loved it for what it was.

Score: (because I like scores)
Overall 5/5
Innovation 4/5
Fun 4/5
Theme 5/5
Graphics 5/5
Audio 3/5
Humor 0/5
Mood 4/5

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 ( 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.
