CRYSTALON

Your kingdom, like many kingdoms in this world, draws its power from a crystal. The Crystalon. The legends tell, that the crystal can even be used to ascend to other plains where only wealth and pure bliss awaits. But Crystalon also holds an ancient curse. The undead ghosts from realms beyond this world are drawn to the crystal, always seeking to destroy it and everything around.

As the king it is your duty to bring wealth to your kingdom and unveil the mystery of the old legends.

::::::::::::FAQ::::::::::::

Q: Why do my buildings have questionmarks above them?

A: Buildings can only gather materials from adjacent resources. The questionmark is displayed when there is no resource to be gathered. Also note that only lumbermills can process wood, quarries only stone etc.

 

Q: Where can I find gold, diamonds, etc.?

A: Place a watchtower at the edge of the map to expand your territory. There are plenty of gold and diamond depots on the map. Explore a bit to find them

 

Got any further questions or something that should be added to the FAQ? Feel free to contact me :)

As some people experienced game breaking performance issues I've uploaded a new build today that addresses these issues. The game logic and features were completely left untouched and reflect the initial upload in every way.

I'm really confused on how you get gold. I guess I just got a map with no gold? Fun game though! I like it!

The map is not procedurally generated. The map in the jam entry is always the same. Use watchtowers to expand your area and you will find gold eventually :)

Ahhh Okay! I understand now! For some reason I was putting watchtowers around the crystal. I thought they shot ghosts or spotted monsters.

On the linux download I get:

Error: Couldn't load project data at path ".". Is the .pck file missing?
If you've renamed the executable, the associated .pck file should also be renamed to match the executable's name (without the extension).

Now working!

Oh shoot. I'm really sorry about that. Sadly, I can't update the files until the rating period is over :(

I've managed to put a new build up, so this issue may hopefully be fixed now :)

Nice entry! First time I died because I did not understand that I can kill the ghost by clicking. Expected a tower defense game. ;)

I really enjoyed this!  Took me a while to beat, but it was rather addictive!

Thanks for playing! :)
