Karawan video game by bippinbits

Guide your caravan turn by turnthrough a crumbling word. Forage, mine and expand your following. Hire a Magus to perform world transforming spells, and finally reach the portal that will save...most of you.

Made in hours for Ludum Dare with Godot. Come to our Discord to talk about it, or give feedback :)I uploaded a post jam version as browser playable and downloadable (changelog below). I always recommend to play the downloadable, as the browser can have audio issues (crackling). If you want to rate the game for ludum dare, best play the downloadables called Karawan, not the PostJam versions.Hints:control with mousetry to get wagons for all resourceswagons have to be manually assigned to work an adjacent field (until you get the foreman upgrade)get a magus, spells are funthere are many paths to reach the portalOST by Cameron Paxton https:cameronpaxton.bandcamp.comalbumkarawan-ost

My Little World is a relaxing building game where you create your own world using hexagonal tiles.In One Tile Mode you only have access to a single tile at a time, connecting tiles the right way grants points, points level you up and levels give you more tiles to build with.

There is also anEasy Mode,where you get tiles much faster, and you can also place any of the tiles you have.If puzzles are not your taste, you can play in Freebuilding Mode,where you can build anything you want.The game is in it's early stage, as there still are some things I want to get done.
