Quiet simple puzzle game. Alien invasion happens and player controls alien general. Main task is to destroy humans cities (in honor of alien Queen). Gameplay builds on smart money spending. You have set of weapons, every with its features and cost. Your goal is to destroy all buildings.
I`ll be brief, cause i`m tired and my english f..cking ridiculous. So we are small team of three man and this is our first LD. Friend of mine tell me about and we decide to join. By the way we are from Ukraine.
From 12 final themes that one was worst for us. For other we have better ideas, but shit happens. Anyway for that one we also have simple idea. We decide to not write a journal cause lack of time.
Whole game was done from zero in about 36 hours. We don't work at night-times. I believe overwork is inefficient. Also we use Unity3d engine cause its well-known for us and works pretty fine. We made a simple plan (how many levels, graphic assets and features we need) and start to work. For destruction we use simple mesh and combined from pieces variant. Producing this combined stuff takes a lot of time and was hard routine for me =(. Although plan gives us a vision how to run developing processes in parallels. So nobody sitting without a work and waiting for others.
Don't know what else to say if any question please ask here or you can find our contacts on web-site - http://interbellum.ru/index_eng.html Although you can find there information about our current "big" project - Bravada.
Hope you`d like our game. Please vote for us!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
