This is a game that tries to answer the question: why do educational games suck so bad?

The answer: they teach stupid stuff, and don't have ZOMBIES.

This game is an RTS about sustainable energy use and blowing the crap out of zombies.

You've got to build a new society from the ruins. Your choices matter. Fossil fuels are awesome, but make lots of smog, which makes the zombies stronger. Corn-based Ethanol fuel will spare your oil reserves, but eat up all your food. And you have to balance between splitting your metal reserves to build buildings and trucks and saving some for bullets for your turrets and guns.

There's two modes: sandbox, which is open-ended - just survive against the zombies and last as long as you can, and campaign, which introduces you to all the games' features.

This game is constantly being updated, so let me know about bugs and/or feature requests!

Also, this game was a competition entry and part of the competition requirement was that I enable mochiads, so I'm sorry if that bugs anyone, I'm disqualified if I take it out so I don't really have a choice.

Cool

I like this game, but what would be useful for people with slower computers or for the more complex levels, is an option to turn off warnings such as food deficit and the ones you get when (nuclear) waste is piling up.

Also, when waste is polluting, why do my engineers sit there and seemingly do nothing, other than using energy without being able to disable them?
I didn't have a landfill at the time, could that be the reason? If so, why do they use energy?

Fun Game!

I hope you win that jayisgames competition- yours is my favorite out of all the other entrants.

Things I'd suggest for improvement:

1) A restart level button. There were a few times I wasted my initial resources on the wrong buildings and screwed myself over- make it so that I don't have to wait to die or restart the entire game.

2) Save game feature/ level select. I know the game is pretty short, but I don't really want to have to play through the tutorial levels to play the fun ones (I loved the last mission and that geothermal mission)

Good job, I'm hoping for a sequel.

LarsiusPrime responds:

Those features should be in there...

1) Hit "menu" when you're in a level, there should be "RESET" to reset the individual level

2) Whenever you quit, it should save the latest level you've reached, and say "continue campaign" on the main screen from then on, letting you restart from there at any time you come back, even if you close the game or restart your computer.

Let me know if it works! It works for me.

Great

This is amazing. It's really cool.

For people with black and white screen, why don't you just wait? Don't rate the game 0 just because you can't manage to get it working.
