»War. War never changes.«

As if!

Each Battlefield has its own demands, and from the close quarters of urban combat, the hot and humid greens of the jungle and up to the cold, dusty surface of mars: only the most adapted will win!

Build the perfect gun for the war of the week! Adjust recoil, firepower, range and reliability to fit the battle ground, and tune the price to get the most out of the pockets of your customers.

But which side should you help? Each side! This is busines, not politics!

watermelonpizza 6 4 6 4 5 3 5 6 This reminds me of those coffee shop or lemon-aid stand flash games. I used to love those. Enhance the graphics a bit, add some kind of research game-play, think x-com style science and research progression, that could be pretty fun. Definitely need to add a history of the weapons you have made so you can go back and tweak. Maybe you can also add a way for the player to make deals with different governments and agencies specifically, add a black market, maybe there are other gun manufacturers out there you can send spies to to steal information and tech from.
machinemalfunction 7 8 10 10 6 4 6 8 One of my favourite games submitted. I love how surprisingly deep the backstory is, even with very little lore. I wish there was a little more progression and consequence for your actions. Other than that, great foundation for a game

    Of course there was some stuff we didn't get around to do: Sounds, No, sadly you can't load a previous weapon. It'd be nice to have some progression system, maybe you could actually influence the faction strength. Some gui changes, tutorial. Export the weapons for a top-down shooter! :D

    Quite the silly, fun game! I included it in my Bacon Game Jam 10 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

    I had a blast doing world building and painting all these weapon parts.

    Ha, I finally could participate again.

    That was good fun, build guns, sell them - I like
