Wow, I've never thought of fast paced clicker game and it went out unexpectedly great. Great combination of clicker x rts (kinda) x tycoon. Still, there is room for resource type expansion for hardcore fast-paced gamers.

P.S: Sometimes I can't buy upgrade because of flying cats :p

wow fun game. I played it several times and I'm not sure I even understand what was going on. I got all the way to terraforming but I couldn't buy it.

@NoTrueSpaceman, oh, I should add moar information and tooltips.
For terraforming you should have 10kk of Humans. Is's hard, but is't a last step for Good Ending.

Victory! Even if I'm not entirely sure what I was doing...
Really cool clicker game. I like all the random effects that were put into the background and such

Love the idea of combining clicker with keeping the balance. Also main idea of surviving humans on a new planet is very very good. Hope to complete the game later (now i've killed all humanity a couple of times by experimenting with science :) )

This game is fun, animations are great! I think I understand what to do, but it's not really intuitive and I got some difficulties to see the different color for humans and science. I like clicker and idle together, well done!

@urielgamedev, you're right - I should change color of "humans". Can you talk me about other intuitive problems, please?

The idea of developing language and mathmatics and letting this affect the actual ingame representation... Genius! Really cool game :)

This game is just crazy! ^^
It was fun. I could not stop to click an click again.
Graphics are pretty good!
Humourous is nice. Very good work! Congrats!

So much laugh with the random elements, so much fan spam-clicking all buttons to avoid the destruction of humanity.

I won on the fifth time and it was so rewarding. :)

Very well done.

I have beaten the game after three of four failed attempts. The polish and the user interaction is very well done (including the "about to lose"-messages, which helped much).

At the beginning I did not understand that you had to unlock language and maths to get the real information; but this is still a nice gimmick.

A little more information about the technologies would have been nice so that I can see which are important (and which are fatal to research first). But it is very entertaining game! Well done.

It's a goofy concept but pretty fun with good production value!

Wow, that was pretty intense and insane. Too bad I couldn't watch all the glory happening in the background because I was too busy clicking at all possible stuff; though maybe you could have toned down the flying things (like, to 1/3 or so) to make things still look ludicrously plenty without making them too crowded.

Generally, I enjoyed the entry. Maybe it's not 100% spot on the theme (would fit Growing more, maybe? ;) ), but the audiovisuals and the humour worked pretty well here.

Haha fun game! Was a little confusing at first but awesome when I got the hang of it. Love the management and the style fit perfectly! Awesome game! :)

Very impresive!

Great art! Nice sound!
Liked how many thnigs can happen on screen.

A bit confusing at first...
You can just click everything and make to the end without understanding all the relations behind your decisions.

"We will lost all our indies soon" ;)
- I think the world needs more cats

Cats. More Cats.

It took me a while to figure what everything meant, but when I got into it it was an enjoyable little clicker game! I'm personally a bit of a clicker addict on mobile, so I really enjoyed it. The humour absolutely made the game.

And we played your game over on twitch too! Check it out here:

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.
