City Clicker

by iwiws - Jam Entry

City Clicker is an Idle/Clicker City Management game.

It gives you a little settlement of only 80 inhabitants and dares you to complete all the achievements.

Assets are modified from Kenney's Medieval RTS set.

Really interesting! I admit it took me a while to get it, but I'm not used to games like this, so it's fine. The biggest improvement I see would be making the game responsive to browser window size. It also seems like the counter stops for a few seconds when it's about to subtract resources. But overall great job!

Really fun mix, the city builder genre benefits a lot from the clicker genre where you're less passive in the ressources management.

I couldn't get the 5 inns & the Copper Mine achievement :( even tho I had them.

Thanks for the reviews, guys :)
I just checked, and the Copper Mine achievement is bugged, yeap. I'll upload a little fix for it this weekend, but the 5 inns worked for me :/
Anyway, I'll try to make a version 2.0 before the end of september, scrapping most of the game ;)

A very fun game with lots of promise for polishing and release, that currently might have a few more bugs than wanted. Graphics are very fitting.

I got too much rock and too little food. It took me a while to understand how districts and buildings work. I'm not sure what the end of month button is for.

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.
