LD 29 – The Mine

Ludum Dare 29 had the theme ‘Beneath the Surface’, so 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.

Teaching computer controller characters how to behave is fun, although for this I gave them the ability to dig through walls and place floating platforms, so getting from point A to B became a lot easier
