Prepurration for Space

by NPException - Mini LD 55 Entry

So this is my first entry to an LD ever...

You must gather resources on your home planet and create buildings. Your first goal is to build a space center. Once you have done that, you can launch a number of cats to other planets to gather more resources, fight enemies and build colonies.

Unfortunatly there is pretty much nothing to do yet.
At least I submitted SOMETHING, whoohooo! \o/ :D

Controls so far:
Left click on planet -> focus the planet
Left click on resource -> decrease resource
Right click on planet -> spawn cat

Numpad-Minus -> generate new world
Numpad-Plus -> debug mode

The decreasing of resources click-by-click will not be part of the final game. You have to build a resource harvesting facillity which then collects the resource for you over time.

Thanks for the feedback!

Well the clicking-to-decrease-resources will be part of the finished game.
You will have to set up buildings which harvest the resources for you.
I just made it work like it does now just so I could see if the resource depletion works as it should.

The feel of the game (so far) is pretty cool. It reminds me of Spore! would be cool if you can later build a trade network à la civilization and stuff...

World generation is nice. Also, you should've enabled debug mode by default, it makes it look like there is more things to do :)

I hope you continue it. It seems like a great idea :) I included it in part 2 of my MiniLD #55 compilation video series! :)
