I’ve updated the game in response to everyone’s feedback.
There were several problems that people pointed out.
- Sometimes the game didn’t give you any link to keep playing. I’m pretty sure there was only one bug causing this, which I’ve fixed.
- The re-roll mechanic was criticized. I’ve changed it. This also means that the resource roll only uses d6s, which will help if the game ever gets physically produced.
- There were no instructions. I’ve added a page of instructions, but I’m not sure how good they are. Please let me know.
- Someone pointed out that white apes are more likely to attack you if you have lots of followers. They thought it should be less likely (ie the apes are scared of you). I haven’t changed this, but would be interested in people’s thoughts. My justification was that having few party members makes you more stealthy, and the apes are mindlessly savage and will attack anything. This seems to me to fit Edgar Rice Burroughs’ vision of life on Mars, but of course fun is more important than ‘realism’, so this need not mean I should leave it as is.
In conclusion: I’ve fixed some stuff, but no doubt there’s lots more wrong with it. Please let me know what.
