There is nothing here!

There used to be something here!

This won't do!

I must rip open the void

What is this?

This game was made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 45. Please rate it here: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/45/there-was-something-here

It is an idle game about rebuilding the world from scratch. This game is a sequel to another game I made: there is nothing here, link is above.


This game can be played only by clicking/tapping things, but later you will also be able to move with WASD/arrow keys or interact with spacebar. This game is mobile-compatible!

Great game! I love the increasingly intense music as you travel to higher forms! The anti thing is a nice difference in other clicker games, as well as the movement in "The World". That being said, I'm confused about the need for materials, as it isn't explicitly told what it does. It wasn't until some time playing later that I realized that it was for the "floor tiles" in "The World". Additionally, a world map for "The World" area would be a good quality of life change. Overall, this game blew my expectations away. Great work, I'm definitely checking out more of you!

great game and great idea

adriendittrick responds:

thx I hope I'll have more ideas like this!

Great game, but there is one major flaw that both this and its prequel share. Playing it uses so much processing power that it keeps crashing on safari and running using up all the application memory just before I can finish it on any other browser, even when I close every other app. Seems weird for a game that was made in 48 hours and can be finished in 30 minutes. Thankfully it doesn't interfere with the game to much, just robs me of the satisfaction of completing it.

adriendittrick responds:

yeah, unfortunately HTML5 games made with game maker studio tend to be really unstable on mac browsers. Have you considered using firefox or chrome?

Yo while i was playing i DID NOT realize this was a prequel to "there is nothing here" SUCH A MINDFUCK
