Dwarf Orders

Dwarf Orders is a local multiplayer party game, controlled with your phone and visualized on a shared screen where you send orders to a bunch of unruly dwarven miners, hoping they accomplish the shared goals.
In classic tradition we tried to do something ambitious tech-wise for the 2018 GGJ and finished the basics just in time, without much room for polish or fun.  We plan on trying to reuse the party game infrastructure at a future jam; should go much quicker the second time around.
How to play:

Download the shared screen game from the GGJ site, unzip and run DwarfOrders.exe, then follow the instructions on-screen to connect one or more phones to the game.  Press “Force Start” when ready.

Tap on dwarves then tap again to transmit orders to them to go somewhere.  They’re a bit unruly, so they might not do what you expect after reaching their ordered destination.
