Did you work in a team?
Just me, I did everything except the music.

Yes that's right.

Was the resolution a challenge?
It was a lot less of a challenge than it has been. The last two times I have entered this jam I tried to make an RTS..

What did you learn?
Don't allow feature creep to get you down. Or else instead of too many features, you have to cut almost all of them out to avoid either bad implementation or burnout.

loved the concept

This concept is good enough to keep working on and make a full game out of it. I'd certainly buy it.

The font is particularly impressive to me; the one I made for my game was serviceable but I feel like yours is stylish and suits the game well.

The game could use a soundtrack, even if it's just one song.

Developer

Thanks! I'll consider it for sure. I had the idea to be able to add more cars to the train at the cost of longer travel times and needing to move further to survice or defend areas. That and more enemy types might make it a much more fleshed out game 😃

I thought it was too easy at first. And then you get those red x3 carriages. The gameplay then shifts from shooter and becomes more strategic. You have to balance risk vs. profits. I liked that progression.
It's addictive, I played for almost an hour.

Hey that's a cool game! Looks highly replayable. I can tell a lot of good work went into it, good job :)

I love the atmosphere and general world you built with this game. Is it based off of anything specifically?

Developer

It was based off a project I'd meant to do ages ago. There's a note at the end of the description 😁

The game is addictive with simple gameplay and pleasant pumping, Though at the beginning if you put the car turret it turns out a little unbalanced

The day/night cycle was lovely and all the art was great! Fun little game. Nice work! :)

Developer

Thanks!

Quite fun! Would've liked to see some more variety I think but the concept is totally brilliant and the execution is perfect. Feels polished and the view is soooo pretty. Maybe some different landscapes, enemies, and a meaningful progression and this could be a very cool release!

Interesting concept, good control, good artwork.  The progression is decent but I  think it would feel nicer if there were some occasional money bonuses. The predictability of doing the math in your head like "okay, I want that upgrade so I have to do exactly 4 more runs of this build..." instantly puts you in a calculated grind mindset, so tossing out an occasional moneybag pickup to shoot, or a multiplier for not taking any damage in the level, or things like that could alleviate that feeling.

Thanks for the feedback! All good ideas. I'd meant to add score for perfect and no weapons runs but ran out of time. Might make a new version post jam with it though!

Simple but fun gameplay mechanic! The graphics and sound beautifully set the mood and the mini-techtree is a good incentive to keep playing. I wish reloading was faster and ennemies and bonuses would pop more often to give it a more frantic pace. Super solid entry overall! Is there an ending after unlocking everything?

Developer

Thanks! There is no bonus for unlocking everything... If I had time I would have added a difficulty multiplier to get high scores though

Superb game with a superb aesthetic.  I picked it up quickly but it gets challenging fast too!

Very nice game mechanics. The upgrades and carriage types make for a nice long term progression. The game feels very polished. Awesome entry!

Developer

Thanks!

i really like the colors! :D

Submitted

Very nice! I like that the game saves, so i can keep playing in several days :p

what does the yellow things do?

Developer

If you shoot them you skip some time 😉

Amazing, I love the progression! It's smooth and beautiful, a super fun game to play.

Developer

Thanks!
