Cloak and Dagger: Ludum Dare edition

Posted on 6th December 2017 by PTSnoop in Games

For this Ludum Dare, I was vaguely planning to make a board game. Or at least, something board-game-related – possibly a real-time worker placement game. Then, when the theme “The more you have, the worse it is” was announced, I knew what to do – make a reverse worker placement game! Make a game where you don’t want to put workers down, but you kinda have to.

As Monarch of a tiny realm, you fear that your nobles are plotting against you. Your solution: induct them all into a secret society! They’ll be far too busy looming around in cloaks to start any actual plots.

The trouble is, secret societies don’t stay secret. And the more people join your secret society, the harder you’ll find it to keep everything carefully balanced. Good luck!


The inner circle of columns are actions. Click and drag cloaked figures onto the actions to have them happen. Drag more cloaked figures onto them to make them happen more.

The outer circle of columns show you how well your secret society is doing. If any of them reach the minimum or maximum, you lose. The aim is to keep the secret society alive for as long as possible!

Press the Spacebar to restart.

Mouse over things to see what they are / what they do.
