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.

Wait, three days?

It is interesting to find out what got the highest rating in this NG Game Jam. The coolest thing was how you were able to just run around everywhere and use your environment. Robinson Crusoe happens to be a book I have read. I couldn't help but think of "African Dudes" with those guys and their masks. How courageous they are to just show us their flopping penises. The voicework is great and all of them are distinct.

The funniest part was probably when the master said all those things which just meant "bye". Granted, I'm going to need a strategy guide/walkthrough to finish this. I am amazed this was created in such a short time because the artwork is so good. This seems more like the kind of thing that would take months to make! You, JAZZA, always go well in these game jams.

When did it get so easy? It was hard earlier...

Very strategic and adventurous. Food doesn't get a problem is you get some apples, but save 3 seeds, and make the fire pit. Make sure you build the house fast. All tools are on the beach, some come later on. The "Happy Hut" fills your happiness quickly. Don't take every little thing from every tree, just what you need to make your desired building. And the intro skips if you press the space bar. I swear, I was so amazed at how I got there so easily.

Amazing game but a few things can be adjusted.
For one, your energy, hunger, happiness, and thirst levels deplete too quickly when not all of them are full.
Make the game longer, ten days in this game goes by too quickly. This game has tons of potential and you should think about making another game like this but make it like 30 days and a ton more things to do.
Why isnt there and upgrade for the happy shack D:
Also to skip the beginning cutscene just click the screen several times and it will be skipped for anyone who is too incompetent to do so.
Overall amazing game and after beatign it like 10 times im still playing lol. I give it a 8/10 and 4/5. Would be 10/10 but it's too short for my taste.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

extremely overwhelming hard!!!!!

its near impossible to play here are some stuff
how the hell do i get a saw
how the hell do i get a book?
how the hell can u manage to slay deer fast enough but keep ur hunger satisfied i mean i kill 2 but hunger saps way to fast i can never get to day 3
also this game is in serious need of a lil help ur far to lazy to give a few pointers and a skip from the intro would ease my frustration even more


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Great Game! Very Reminiscent of the game Stranded II.
