Where People Once Were

by brettkercher - Jam Entry

"I have watched these hills for travelers, this is the first in many seasons.
People lived here once. They worshiped me. Now, I am almost forgotten.
The heat of life gives me strength. I will help this traveler. He will need it...

there is danger afoot."


In a secluded area, there resides one room long forgotten. In our game, you play as the God who was once worshiped there. Issue orders to the weary traveler who stumbled upon your temple in order to gather resources, and restore it to its former glory.

This is the first Ludum Dare the two of us have participated in, hope you enjoy our game!

Looks like a good game, it has a good story and a nice gameplay concept, but it's too long, I can't manage to get enough materials to craft stuff, and I found the tool's lifespan too short, one day seems too short when we have to get more than two or three materials. If the progress would be balanced, it would definitely be a great game. Good job !

I have to agree with Yvanor the game just takes too long. I can get 3 or 4 materials at most in a day. Looks great though.

Yeah it takes too long to gather materials, you should make the outside larger (for example add a forest or something that the player can go to) and put more resources in the area you've added.

Interesting concept and i love the art. It will require some balancing to make it really enjoyable though. I would like to see this game fully developed.
