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!

Feels a lot like Don't Starve. It's a very quick game, and that's not a compliment, but once you notice patterns you start to fall into a groove. In fact, it's possible to play the game once and get every medal in that one play through. You gotta build in the right place to lower travel time and plan ahead. The cave is useless and the stream shouldn't be used beyond day 2-3. Done right, the fort can be up by day 5, leaving you 5 medal gathering days. And if you're looking for Wilson, here's a tip: It's somewhere in the last 5 days. He's easy enough to find on the beach on the correct day.

Anyway, I played through a handful of times to get all the medals. It's good but not exactly fun. You feel accomplished once you've got all the buildings but Crusoe is such a whiny baby that he saps the fun out of things (and, Jesus H, does he require a ton of attention!). Still, the Wilson joke was a chuckle and it had some pretty solid mechanics. Though never ask me to use the Happy Shack again.... It gets disturbing after the first use. I stuck to praying (that I never had to use it again).

4/5. Whiny PC and speedy gameplay damages a perfectly good survival game. Props to the dog though, who never ate, pooped or whined the entire time! Good boy!
