Ok, I do get the spawn button by scrolling to the upper-left settlement (as per your comment) but I had to plug a mouse into my laptop to get a middle mouse button option. Can I suggest you change the controls so you either click at the boundaries or hover to get the map to scroll. Can I also suggest you snap the initial view to the upper left hand corner so we know where to start. Finally, I have no idea what I was meant to be doing so I gave up, this desperately needs a tutorial. Nice graphics and sound though.


You are right, notes taken! Thank you very much for all the suggestions.

I'll add gameplay instructions soon.

Hi everyone! Thanks for all the feedback!

I believe most of you are having the same issue, which is the button not appearing when you select a settlement. There are two possible causes: a good one and a bad one.

The good one is you just haven't found the right settlement (not all of them have buttons). There should be about six settlements spread throughout the map, and the one that spawns workers lies in the top-left corner. You can explore the map by dragging the screen with the middle mouse button. If this is the case, it's obviously my fault for not leaving any explanations for the controls anywhere >.<

The bad one is that it really is a bug, which I'm searching for but am failing to find. If possible, could any of you attach a screenshot of, say, the training camp selected but not showing any buttons?

Thanks again for all the comments!


can't figure out how to do anything, except from selecting things..


I think there might be a bug... I don't get any buttons to spawn workers.

On ubuntu the games give:

Hi code0!

The precompiled version of the game requires some packages to be installed beforehand (the ideal would be to make a *.deb which automates this process, but I did not have the time for that during the jam). See the instructions for more details =)
