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.

Good game

But the guy needs too much food. I ate 5 deer in one day and he didnt go full. :P

Great Job!

Overall, I really enjoyed this game. The graphics were smooth and the sound wasn't the annoying kind that sends me looking for the mute button. I liked the aspect of searching for food, materials and items and being able to build different structures.

There are only a few small things that stopped me from giving it 10/10:

1) As people have said before, the stumps left from the cut down trees got in the way of movement via the arrow keys (I switched to the mouse to avoid this but would have preferred using the keys).

2) It would have been nice if there was a small overview map (although being a "man awakens on strange island" game would go against having a map). Once or twice I forgot which way my camp was and got lost.

Other than those two things, everything else was excellent. Good job on the game and I look forward to the next one.

P.S. For those people complaining that the stat bars drain too quickly, maybe you should make your person happier (hint, hint).

Well done game, though fails at a couple of things

This game could be fantastic, but unfortunatly there are a few things that get in the way.

First, it's too short. Having to play only ten "days" is a way too short time, especially since if you want to play the game again, you do the exact same things over and over, some variety would be nice.

Second, there is no tutorial, and for a game like this, it's pretty bad. I died twice before I could beat the game because I didn't know what the f*ck to do.

Third, You should add more levels, and a sandbox, it's bet's repetetive if you play the only mission over and over.

But however, the game is greatly designed. The music, even though it loops, isn't half bad. The way you build things to make your SIMS-stats go up faster, is a good way to get you involved. The graphics are nice and appealing, and for a flash game, the voiceacting coul be A LOT worse.

I had fun during the game, and that gives it a 7/10.

Confusing interface, difficult, and repitive.

Alright, I liked the game, but it could be a lot better. I don't know how to do anything, and you don't tell me. Add quests so that you have a guideline for people! Make it so that, like the guy below me said, you don't need to die over and over again to get a feel for the game! The interface is confusing: How do I get water, how do I pause, how do I sleep, how do I skip this cutscene I've watched five times!? HOW DO I DO ANYTHING!? Those were my first thoughts going into the game., and that's a problem. I hate to give this a 6 because it has so much potential, but you really need to iron out these flaws... but I guess, in retrospect, you only had three days to work on it, and I suppose you did a pretty good job in that time, but I'm not marking this on how much time you had, I'm marking it as a game by itself, and it really could be a lot better with not much more work.
