For this “Tiny World” theme I’ve decided to take the challenge from a literal perspective. This game is played at a resolution of currently 62×78, with the potential to go slightly higher but hopefully not by much. Gameplay is a mix of Sim and Strategy. Right now you click on a forest or mountain to gather Wood or Stone respectively, and then you build things: Roads, Houses, Power Lines, or Skyscrapers is the current crop of structures. Right now everything is controlled with the keyboard but first thing tomorrow I’ll be shifting over to mouse control as placing Roads currently is a pain in the butt.
I’m not entirely sure where the gameplay’s going to end up. After all, this is Ludum Dare, so I’m building from an iterative angle. Hopefully by the end I’ll have a nice little time-killer built.
