Ludum Dare 29 was the last weekend, and the theme was ‘Beneath the Surface’. I made a game where you give commands and these miners go dig and collect resources for you. It turned out pretty well for 48 hours, but still feels a bit incomplete in terms of a lack of win condition or difficulty.
It’s mouse controlled, Q/Escape to quit. Instructions are in game.
The source is on Github. I’ve also moved a lot of my older projects onto github.
