The Cannibals are coming in 10 days!

In that time you must build your economy to keep Robinson healthy, sane and happy, but most of all, prepare a fortress so when the cannibals come, you are defended.

This game was made in 3 days from scratch by "Team Happy Shack" for the July Newgrounds Game Jam.

I signed up just to write this...

You sir are stupid. This game is far from unrealistic. You have 1 minute to basically gather 10 rock, 3 wood, 2 pieces of rope, and you need even more requirements to get the rope. It roughly takes about 50 seconds to walk around the WHOLE island to get the necessary supplies. Next time don't rush when creating a game, thats what makes a game successful, it seems like you did this game in an hour.

Okay, so I start off the game, I know I'm a guy on an island cannibals are coming in 10 days, blah blah blah. But one minute goes by and it's already night time, I have just collected all my tools and Crusoe complains that he is thirsty. I have the bucket so I go to the water to collect water in my bucket but apparently I can't, I need a water well. Fine, I thought so I am about to build it but I can't because I don't have 10 stone, and by this point Crusoe complains that he is hungry and tired. I skin and kill 6 deer eat them all and I am still hungry, tired and thirsty. and by this point I am very annoyed because now Crusoe screams "I JUST WANT TO DIE!!!" I can't get him water, I can't sleep because I'm too hungry and thirsty, there's nothing I can make for entertainment, and I can't eat my dog! So then I died, and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't survive one day because each day passes like one minute, and that was not nearly enough time to do anything!
But I am a guy who needs to start on the easy level before I go on the harder ones, this didn't have that. I understand this took three days to make, and I believe it. There's potential in this game but this was the worst game from Jazza I've ever played. Please make this easier for people like me who are fans of Jazza Studios, and want to continue to see you make more awesome stuff, because a challenge is one thing, but this is shit!

I believe it will turn out to be a great game with just a little more tuning you could also use a difficulty setting cause some people just dosent know how to survive and also if you can set a personality choice at beginning to where each personality can make hunger go down slower but makes happiness go down quicker and so on

Woo, 4th place on the scoreboard!

Aside from that, amazing gameplay! I just love survival games, and there's so few really good, addicting ones. While this one had not all too much variation, it still featured quite a few choices a player can make, and that was awesome.

I really really would want you to make more of these games. I already am a great fan of your art and games, this would be just fantastic.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

three days to making this game is not enough

i mean, a human can survive without water for three days and without food for 14 days (thats two weeks!). i dont know anything about the personality of the main character in this game, but why is his happines falling down so fast after some time? i would be happy to make something so i can survive if i where him. now to sleep...i can stand three days awake if i have to do something.

this game was made in a rush, please take time when you make a game, then its not so hard.

i give you six stars for the effort.
