I would prefer to look at the source before running a binary. And one of the “soft” rule of the jam is to have your code open sourced.

I originally wanted to add more things related to having to save the galaxy and the space opera genre, and actually doing opera in space by having artefacts to discover which would be opera libretto, and needing to cover the galaxy with broadcasting range as a way to manage influence zones, but didn’t have time.
For now the enemies are named after opera characters, and the mask that shows a star is owned by another player is inspired by the phantom of the opera… It’s quite light on the theme…
Thanks for the feedback!
In my original plans I wanted to add a way to abandon a colony, and inexpensive scout ships that could provide more informations, but I had to cut short.
Also the galaxy is currently a little too random and you can start in a very hard position…
I’m using https://github.com/vleue/polyanya , my implementation of https://www.ijcai.org/proceedings/2017/0070.pdf in Rust. I had a lot of issues building the dynamic navmesh, it took me way too long and I had to cut short a lot of ideas due to that…
The “combine” part is that you have to combine your defenses on the two different planes.
There is actually a soft limit on how long you can play, with a “you win!” at 300 seconds, and you shouldn’t be able to play much longer anyway because the black cancerous cells will kill you pretty fast.
It should take around 30 minutes to go from start to surviving 300 seconds, and you actually need a different strategy to survive that long.
There’s a cheat menu that I used a lot during development to be able to set up a game with the level I wanted from start :D There is a hint on how to enable it in the description.
Welcome to the first Bevy Jam!
Here are my rules:
- I’ll be the sole judge for this category, but don’t hesitate to mention interesting entries!
- The cash prize will be of 50€ for an individual participant, or 100€ that will be divided equally between the team members.
- The entry must follow the other rules of the Bevy Jam, and run either on macOS or WASM for me to test it.
Thank you, and happy jam!
