A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Powerline is a game made in 48 hours for the Ludum Dare compo.
How to play:
Distribute the energy to 3 different zones using sliders. You only have 100% to distribute over the three zones, so prioritize wisely. Buildings will emit icons to display their status. Keep your residents happy and they will pay their power bills on time. Use your profits to purchase upgrades to keep your consumers happy.
If you do not satisfy your customers, they will leave, and the town will fall into ruin. It is game over when all the buildings are abandoned.
