Cool game! I like that you can tell the citizens what to do in order to help protect the village. Defenitely a unique concept i saw in this jam.


Great game in the short time frame!


Very cool entry! Felt like there was too much for me to handle at the start but eventually got the hang of it! 


Nice work for the short time span! I felt a bit overwhelmed  in the beginning, but  was able to gather some resources! :D


impressive, what you did in the short amount of time. mood is also nice.


Not sure what to do. I can gather stuff, but I can't seem to make anything with it.


Hey there! In the first room you spawn is a bookshelf with all the recipes and controls in the game.

Basically,  you have to put stuff with water in the cauldron to make a healing potion. This can be picked up with an Erlenmeyer flask in order to use it in the game. You have one flask at the beginning, the others have to be crafted. Please note the recipe for an Erlenmeyer flask is 1 log and 1 iron at the oven, not 1 sand.

Thank you for playing anyway and if you have further question, feel free to ask :)

Pretty creative game for a 48 hour GameJam!


my MMB(middle mouse button) doesn't working and I couldn't experience your game completely! :(


You can use the buttons 1 to 6 to switch the inventory slots. If you like you can try that. Sorry that this is not explained in-game, but we edit it in the last minutes.


Awesome game for 48 hours!


This game is  really fun and pretty impressive for 48 hours!


Good work, this seems like a lot to get in over 48 hours. One note is that I really would have liked to be able to drag the items from my inventory into the pot.

Important notes:

Erlenmeyer flask: the recipe is 1 log and 1 iron

We updated the game with some critical bug fixes and some (really) minor tweaks, to make the game  better playable. This should not influence the current rating, but shows a state of the game that is more intended by us.
