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.

not sure...

seems like it would be a good game if i could find, umm, some instructions? as it sits i cant play it, all i can figure out to do is cut trees and pick apples...

Add some instructions and then we can talk.

Dies too quickly- Pain in the Ass!

You're dead by the time you collect all the tools. He has to eat food and drink water every 45 seconds or he dies. That's ridiculous.

Interseting Gamem, Found a bug!

I was enjoying this game... and was about to win... I had my fortress and every building except the fruit pit. Then I was in the middle of building it... when suddenly I realized what it was I had done. I built the building on top of my Robinson. :(

When I pointed and clicked, the character moved, and then I built on top of where he was heading or something. In any case, look in to it please :).

Wait, three days?

It is interesting to find out what got the highest rating in this NG Game Jam. The coolest thing was how you were able to just run around everywhere and use your environment. Robinson Crusoe happens to be a book I have read. I couldn't help but think of "African Dudes" with those guys and their masks. How courageous they are to just show us their flopping penises. The voicework is great and all of them are distinct.

The funniest part was probably when the master said all those things which just meant "bye". Granted, I'm going to need a strategy guide/walkthrough to finish this. I am amazed this was created in such a short time because the artwork is so good. This seems more like the kind of thing that would take months to make! You, JAZZA, always go well in these game jams.
