    Looking good. I can see where this could have ended. Well done. Not bad for 10 hours of work. Well done!

    Good to see you gave it a shot even though you were short on time.

    Nice game, you managed to get some elements of the old settlers game in there.

    The colour pallet for the game was well chosen as well.

    This would've been much better if you had more time on your hand, but it's great that you gave it a try.

    Really nice base for a larger game. Would really like to see this develop into something bigger. :)

    This game looks nice, but is a bit short.
    Some animations would be good.
    This game has the potential to become a great post-compo game.
    I like it :)

    I really liked the graphics, but the gameplay was lacking probably due to the 10 hour constraint.

    Not going to rate a game that insults me before I even begin :(

    Graphics are actually very nice even though they are so simple. The mine might be an exception to this though :P.

    Graphics were nice. The gameplay was really nice though, but I can definately see this game getting somewhere, if you would continue to work on it.

    nice job for a 10h work :D !

    Neat game with good graphics! Longer would have been better, but since you didn't have the full 48h, it's pretty good!

    I found a bug: when you acquire the Woodcutter, the amount of food(30) is not deducted.

    Really cool idea. I look forward to the Post Compo versions.

    There isn't much gameplay, but it's a good entry for 10 hours of work. I like the graphics and how stuff changes with time, how the town evolves - I can see the theme here, but I wish there was more of... well, everything. That's good. I also would like to see some post-compo version.
    TL;DR: Nice. Gimme more.

    A cool little game, I love games like this. Sadly it was very slow after building the mine. I would imagine the 10 hour deadline had a little something to do with that ;). Would love to see a post compo version.

    The basic idea is good, although it's not really new. However, the part where you have to wait for your colony to evolve is boring. You might want to add some more upgrades, or maybe there could be several ages to go through..

    Looks like a good start but not really enough here to comment on other than that sorry! Only criticism I can really give is that the wait time is a bit silly. Would love to see the finished product.

    The graphics does its job. Nice start for 10 hours. Curious how it would play and look if finished.

    This is a good job for 10 hours. But well, it's a pretty simple puzzle. I wonder why you made a walkthrough for it ^^ I think the main problem is that you spend your time waiting, like in a RTS...but it's definitely not a RTS and you got nothing else to do. I think you could focus on the puzzle idea, but instead of waiting, it would be "spend Xfood, Xiron to build a farm, gain Xfood" it would be like a mathematical puzzle. With more features, it could be fun.

    Didn't know what to do or how to build until I got it and it became fun!

    Nice job in 10h but so few thing to do at final :-(

    Liked the direction this game took, bloody shame it didn't have its potential fully realized.

    For ten hours, I guess it's pretty decent.
