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.

Enjoy!

Takes time to get used to. But becomes quite fun.

For those who think it's too hard. The initial gameplay leaves that effect on you, on your second or third try the game becomes actually quite easy.

Dealing with food? Get those apples off the trees on sight and make sure to skin and de-meat every last deer you see, but never eat till the meat is cooked. Same goes to fish. One cooked item or apple can last you near an entire day.

Water? Make sure to find that bucket so you don't have to run for the river each time, and build a well as a mid-game priority.

Morale? An altar's a good start until you can build a happy shack for fast recharging, if you ever get far enough to build a church, morale becomes a non-existent worry.

Sleep? Least of your stat worries. A house works wonders and if you are ever going to build a hammock, build it somewhere far where running for the cave or house is impractical when going for resources.

As for resources, strip the tree of everything usable at the start, later in the game you can just cut the tree down directly because you won't need the rest, except for the occasional leaf and bark. Get that mining tool ASAP on your first day because any stone you meet should be mined immediately.

The reason I took 1 star off is because we didn't get to have bloody vengeance on those molesting cannibals. Then again, this was made in a jiffy, so it's acceptable. But I would have really liked to return the favor to those cannibals, with death in mind.

Great Job!

Overall, I really enjoyed this game. The graphics were smooth and the sound wasn't the annoying kind that sends me looking for the mute button. I liked the aspect of searching for food, materials and items and being able to build different structures.

There are only a few small things that stopped me from giving it 10/10:

1) As people have said before, the stumps left from the cut down trees got in the way of movement via the arrow keys (I switched to the mouse to avoid this but would have preferred using the keys).

2) It would have been nice if there was a small overview map (although being a "man awakens on strange island" game would go against having a map). Once or twice I forgot which way my camp was and got lost.

Other than those two things, everything else was excellent. Good job on the game and I look forward to the next one.

P.S. For those people complaining that the stat bars drain too quickly, maybe you should make your person happier (hint, hint).
