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!

Awesome game

The intro was hilarious, and skipable. That's great because after a while it becomes annoying and you'll probably restart the game a few times. I think the game was well balanced, don't make it easier please. You might be able to add some extra challenge using wild animals or something. The controls could use a small tweek, maybe you could make that a bit better. It'd be nice if you could get some seeds from the apple garden from time to time.
Love to see a longer version. Wensday was great.

Good but still have some kinks

Cutting a tree should give all the ressources on it. The coconuts/bark/leaves dont magically disapear when i chop it down for wood.. maybe make the cutting action longer to balance it out? Same with meat.. give both the skin and meat when we kill a beast.

Stats decrease too quickly., even with all 4 maxed out.

How do i get rope?

Apples should give seeds from time to time, i got stuck by using too many apples early on and no way of getting more seeds.

Otherwise, very well done considering the content and time it took to do it. The gameplay work fairly well, the first time playing is quite punishing however since we are left there with no hint or instructions on how to proceed, making defeat almost inevitable the first time.

Fun game with a bit of challenge

I am not going to bore people with stuff they've already read in previous posts.

But what ArrogantSoul said about not being able to skip the intro is completely false. Just use the left mouse button and click the screen a few times and you will skip it; yay for no more looking at penises!

Amazingly well done

To the review writers below me. This game is amazingly well done considering the time it took. There is a slight challenge in getting set up at the beginning. You're ability to raise your food bar seems to be horrible as raw meat and coconuts arent exactly the best sustenance. About the stats decreasing too quickly. You may be experiencing this merely because one of your stats are zeroed. When this happens all your other stats drop rapidly. When you sleep and your stats continue to decrease? I mean really? you dont get hungry or thirsty when you wake up? It would be unrealistic to get rid of this. To the person who complained you cant skip the intro. First off. Its hilarious and if you are traumatized by repeats or penises just click it will skip to the game. To the person who couldnt collect water....... You can't drink salt water. You die drink from the river. So with all that said the game mechanics are awesome. I love the jokes in this game. When i found wilson i stripped naked and ran around the room a few times in elation. I died about twice before i beat the game. I like the graphics the voice acting and the whole game concept i think that the only thing missing was a funny ending scene to pull it all together. To future players, most of the tools are on the beach, Drink fresh water, Get yourself something to cook food, and then a way to entertain yourself fast. Overall a very funny and entertaining game.

Great game!

I only wish it was longer. The game was great and after playing it a couple of times I caught on and then the win was pretty easy. I would love to see this idea extended with multiple cannibal attacks, helpers (Friday), and the ability to fight the cannibals in some way. Great start to what could be a huge game.
