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.

I honestly don't know why people are complaining

This game was created marvelously in the time you guys made it. The difficulty is as it should be. You're pressed for time, and you need to move quickly. If you're on a desert island on your own, no one is holding your hand. You have to think rationally, and think quickly. Day 1, get your tools, kill a few deer or find yourself a apple tree, those instantly replenish your hunger meter. Sleep in the damn cave. Day 2, start planning. Gather items accordingly, and don't waste. The Happy shack is the easiest way to keep him high with "morale." Build the fire pit so he enjoys the food and gets more out of it. Hammock lets you sleep easier than a rock floor.

Quit complaining people. This game isn't hard, and it isn't easy. If you can think like a rational human. This should be a cake walk. Great game, and a funny intro. I only give you a 9 though primarily because I just can't keep him above 25%. It just goes by quickly enough to where before I see it, I miss the mark.

great game, needs more stuff

great game but it needs more to do. I finished the fort on the 4th day and had everything build by like the 6th or 7th day. fun though!

I signed up just to write this...

You sir are stupid. This game is far from unrealistic. You have 1 minute to basically gather 10 rock, 3 wood, 2 pieces of rope, and you need even more requirements to get the rope. It roughly takes about 50 seconds to walk around the WHOLE island to get the necessary supplies. Next time don't rush when creating a game, thats what makes a game successful, it seems like you did this game in an hour.

Okay, so I start off the game, I know I'm a guy on an island cannibals are coming in 10 days, blah blah blah. But one minute goes by and it's already night time, I have just collected all my tools and Crusoe complains that he is thirsty. I have the bucket so I go to the water to collect water in my bucket but apparently I can't, I need a water well. Fine, I thought so I am about to build it but I can't because I don't have 10 stone, and by this point Crusoe complains that he is hungry and tired. I skin and kill 6 deer eat them all and I am still hungry, tired and thirsty. and by this point I am very annoyed because now Crusoe screams "I JUST WANT TO DIE!!!" I can't get him water, I can't sleep because I'm too hungry and thirsty, there's nothing I can make for entertainment, and I can't eat my dog! So then I died, and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't survive one day because each day passes like one minute, and that was not nearly enough time to do anything!
But I am a guy who needs to start on the easy level before I go on the harder ones, this didn't have that. I understand this took three days to make, and I believe it. There's potential in this game but this was the worst game from Jazza I've ever played. Please make this easier for people like me who are fans of Jazza Studios, and want to continue to see you make more awesome stuff, because a challenge is one thing, but this is shit!
