Derplings: Tower Ascent

IMPORTANT: We saw that the requirements.txt was missing and there was a bug inside the map please use the following version if you test play the game: https://github.com/macskay/derplings/blob/master/derplings.zip?raw=true


Unfortunately there are some issues we couldn't fix in time, so please be aware of the following:
Known Issues:
 - When deleting a ladder it could happen that derplings fall of the ladder and die. Workaround: Wait until deprlings have reached a platform then delete the ladder.
 - On Stage 7: When placing the TNT on the destructible floor (red floor) make sure that no derplings are actually currently standing on the floor, as the destruction will cause the game to crash as derplings will have an orphaned reference to the platform.
 - The game won't actually tell you when the game is over, however the game is over when there are either no free derplings left or when all free derplings jump of the platform at the top of the tower.

## Running the Game


Only python 3.6 or newer is supported.

* For linux, you need to make sure you have the python-dev packages available to build the wheel for planar
* For Windows install the requirements and run the game as described in Running the Game in a Virtual Environment. For the planar dependency the Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools are required. They can be downloaded at: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691126 There are also pre-built versions of planar downladable here: https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#planar
* For Mac OS. Gee we sure hope this works ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Use pip to install the dependencies in requirements.txt (as seen below)

then run

    python run_game.py

### Running the Game in a Virtual Environment


Make sure you create an environment with python >= 3.6. Then run

    python -m pip install -r requirements.txt

then

    python run_game.py


## How to Play the Game

Your goal is to get as many derplings you can to the top of the tower where they can parachute to safety. Use the items to help the derplings ascend the tower.

1. Left click on an item to place it
2. Right click to get out of item placement mode
3. Right click on placed items in the map to return them to your inventory
4. Don't let the derplings fall too far or they will explode
5. Up/Down Arrow to move camera

We finished (almost)

Holy cow,

There is never enough time to complete these projects. We did our best and the game is as polished as 200 grit sandpaper. We did learn a lot and had a ton of fun. So, it was totally worth it.

We hope you try Derplings and that you're able to complete the game. Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you need help getting it to run on your computer.

Best regards,
The Over Engineers

First night

We have plan.

Progress so far:
- There are things in the world
- The things can fall
- Things can stop falling when they run into other things
