Archipelago - scottychips - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Archipelago is a simple village building game where you help villagers gather resources to build homes. The world is procedurally generated as a string of islands. If you grow your village to 12 villagers, you win!
*WASD to move, mouse to look
*Click water tiles to convert them into land tiles to allow villagers to reach other islands.
*Villagers will gather either wood or stone and deliver it back at the main camp.
*When the villagers have collected at least 1 stone and 1 wood, hit B and switch to build mode. You can then click on a land tile to place a house, earning you another villager. Hit B again to switch back to terraforming.
*Sometimes you can get stuck with a tiny island with no resources and the villager wont do anything. Try connecting it to another island.
*There can potentially be performance issues when there are many villagers around.
*Day night system is pretty wonky.
*Never really got to implement much of an end game.
