Boats Away

by Jordan - Jam Entry

You wake up trapped on a strange island, and must build an army to attack the natives and steal their boat. WASD to move, E to collect nearby objects. Hover over objects for information.

Your goal: Build 5 soldiers and purchase the bridge (hover it). This allows you to take the boat and finally escape.

Music and art by "Groovy Unicyclist" - Thank you! (
- Thanks to everyone on the LD Discord: It was great! We'll be there next LD too.

- Made with Java/LibGDX in about 48 hours with touch-ups during the third day (the latter part of the 72 hours).

- Web build coming soon

Music was nice but did get a bit repetitive by the end.

It's a cool game, without collision bug XD.
It was cool to discuss with you on discord, I hope to see you the next time ;)

Nice farming game. Good UX: being able to multitask going around gathering and making stuff at the 'base' is a good feature; I also like how the wheat replants itself when you gather.

Nice game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Fun game. I liked the music, too bad it was so short and become really repetitive because of that ^^' Still well done :)

Really great entry! However the ending was a little odd. The soldiers kill the natives guarding the boat, then they start moving around randomly very quickly, and then the play floats off in the river say oh no. Didn't quite understand that.

Nice game, but as mentioned by others background music is getting repetitive quickly. I also didn't understand the ending. But still- nice work and fun to play it!
