Interstellarby avh4 - 7dRTS / Mini LD 44 Entry
This is my first attempt at an LD submission, and unfortunately the resulting game is not particular playable. But I certainly learned a ton in the process.
Interstellar lets you chart humanity's course over hundreds of millions of years. I originally intended to have 2- and 3-player mode, but now there is only 1-player mode. You choose how to allocate your civilization's energy, and try to race for the stars. You'll see lots of crazy numbers on the screen (like 1.989 Giga-Yotta-grams, and 30.4 kilo-Yotta-Watts)--those are the kinds of units you deal with over millions of years. All of the star systems in the game are actual systems in real life.
