Ludum Dare 36 game "Interstellar Protectorate"
Challenge theme "Ancient technology".
TL/DR: Configure the drones to defend the planet.
Deep in the mysterious tombs of Egypt's mighty pyramids lies artefact's from another era. Perfectly cut stones describe a powerful civilization whose footsteps go far a cross and deep into our moving earth. These creators seems to have perished into the sands, but they did not. Their purpose was to seed our minds with technological wonders. Giving us a taste of a interstellar civilization.
To this day they are out there inspiring other world…
Interaction with these godlike beings comes at a price. Pesky looters flock wherever they land. That’s why you have been given the Protectorate title and the mission to set up a stellar defense system to fend of looters. Fend them of long enough for the civilization to mature enough to defend themselves.
A civilization can only tolerate one landing squad of looters. After that they will rebel against their interstellar benefactors and exile them.
Good luck. The fate of this entire planet lays on your shoulders.
How to play
