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.




Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Really good game, way too hard.

The stats decrease way too fast, but this is a really fun game, it's just a shame that I can barely play it without dying. Other then that, good game, but unless there's difficulties, or it's just a little easier, 5/10 man.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great Job

great game especially considering the time it was made in but it s hard for me to get the balance of advancing and the stats but GREAT JOB!

This is really good game for something made in 3 days. Yeah sure, it's a little rigid, but you can only accomplish so much in 3 days. I must admit I had a LOT of trouble with this game at first. But with patience anyone can get the hang of it.
Some helpful tips and answers to possible questions:
-Coconuts are USELESS.
-Apples are the best source of food, you can choose to collect all the apples or use the seeds to make an orchard, either is fine.
-Make all your structures close to the river in the west, this way you do not have to worry about your thirst level too often.
-Unless you are a perfectionist, you do not need to build everything on the list.
-The Happy Shack, I like to call it (I don't know what it's actually called) provides the most happiness and has a fun little minigame, try and build this along with fire and a place to sleep first.
-In the beginning aim to exploit every possible resource out of everything (EXCEPT FOR THE COCONUTS). Towards the end this becomes less important.
-If you can't figure out how to make refined resources our of the raw materials, you need to build the structure in the first building tab to make each refined resource.
This game was also HILARIOUS! The voicing was perfect and the intro was quite funny. My favorite feature of the game was the happy shack. All in all this was a really good game.
