Vikinizator

by qporest - Mini LD 69 Entry

Help a leader of Vikings to colonize an island.
To do so, you have to build 5 villages.
Get resources, manage them wisely, and listen to your people.
Z, X, C to change equipment. Q/E to open buying/crafting windows. 1-5 to buy/craft.

I used this mini LD as an opportunity to learn Unity by creating some project with it. Also, for the first time created all the graphics by myself, and even music (despite the intro).

Intro music by @HusarKat

Firstofall, the graphics and music are really nice, the game allso plays well. Secondofall, I would sugest the moving to be done without a grid (You can do that by adding the Input.GetAxis("Horizontal" and "Vertical") to the trasform.position and rounding the position for interaction with the world), as the camera is a bit glitchy. Overall, a very nice game :)

@MatousFiala thank you for feedback!
I am wondering why the camera is glitchy. Do you mind telling me which version you have played (web/windows)?

Really nice game :) I played it several times (though I never managed to finish - always moved too far from my camps :D while in Gold Rush).

The graphics were really nice :) There was no music in the Web version though (didn't try the Windows one).

@kfischer_okarin sound bug is interesting... It didn't happen to me. I'm glad you liked it otherwise :)

An amazingly polished, but I really couldn't figure out how to mine stone. Also, maybe a few "chopping" or "mining" animations?

Z,X,and C switch the equipment.
Stone can be mined by anything.
Iron only with pickaxe, gold only with iron pickaxe.
So there is 1 animation for every item, having a few for each is an interesting idea, i guess it does get old quick, thank you.

Looks interesting! Would it be possible to make a WebGL export? (I don't have Windows, and the Unity webplayer's been so glitchy for me lately that I just removed it.)

For the windows build, you can remove the .pdb files, they are not required to just play the game they just take a lot of space. But really good entry, sprites are nice a bit not intuitive, but really good concept in general. :)

I liked the game, it was fun and interesting, the resource system has a good balance so you need to mind your buying/crafting.
I kept dying by walking too far XD but I managed to get 5 villages.

the graphics looks good for this game and the music fits, my only complaint is that the sound & music
was so low I had to max the volume of my PC + the speakers to hear anything..

other then that, great entry, well done :)

Great game, I really liked the ending.

mr. a, i will try. I'm new to unity so I didn't even know that there is a WebGL export.
@RttStudio, thank you for advice. The confusion about resources sprites apparently are quite common, so i guess I'll have to put more work into it.

@CyberStarLight, thanks! Balancing really took some time to figure out, and it's a small game.
@Steven Miller, thanks!

Neat game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the MiniLD 69 games, if you’d like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/nRFzaIcVxgM
