This is an ultra-minimalist city-builder made for the GMTK Jam 2022 ! Roll dices that control what kind of block you can build, place them, then roll again !

Blue blocks are residential buildings. They start with 1 population.
Orange blocks are "relaxing". Every residential block within their influence (neighbors and neighbors' neighbors) gain 2 population.
Purple blocks are transports. Every neighbor to a purple block is considered a neighbor to every other purple block.
There is no losing condition. Take your time. Each map has a set number of building spots, so the game ends when you filled all of them, or when you've had enough. Try to have the most population possible !
The theme of the jam was "Roll of the Dice". It was implemented in the idea that dice decide what kind of block you can build. In an effort to keep the dice feeling like dice, they keep their physics, which allow the player to cheat with a bit of effort, by pushing one die with another for example. Since the game is made to be calm and simple, this is not a problem.
Things I would add
- A simple modding system : right now my maps are simple textures, with white pixels representing ground and black pixels representing sea. It would not be very difficult to add custom maps loading.
- A bette menu. I had to make one at the very end.
- Different building types, dice variation.
- Moving stuff. Vehicles, birds, whales.
Thank you !
