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.

Great game!

I only wish it was longer. The game was great and after playing it a couple of times I caught on and then the win was pretty easy. I would love to see this idea extended with multiple cannibal attacks, helpers (Friday), and the ability to fight the cannibals in some way. Great start to what could be a huge game.

Done in 3 days? Awesome!!!

Found it tricky to start with but became very easy, would love to see this game develop more content, become longer and maybe add a sand box option at the end just for giggles. For all those having trouble, I would love to help you out but half the fun of this game was the challenge and I don't believe in robbing you of that. It's just a matter of simple problem solving. Thanks "Team Happy Shack"

Good but

I agree with some people that it needs some balance with the stats decreasing too fast. Even when he is asleep everything goes down really fast, it shouldn't. In my first try I died while sleeping. He shouldn't be thirsty nor hungry nor sad while sleeping, or at least these stats should decrease slower, reeeeealy slower. In the begining food is easy to find, but you need to gather too many things at once. One thing that in my opinion was unnecessary was the fact that to get all stuff from the coconut trees you needed to get one by one. Everything should come together, I mean, the coconuts disappear, the leaves too, and about the apples, after eating them you should gain the seeds. Those things are logical, but I get that the game was made in 3 days, so probably there wasn't much time to think about every detail. Despite these few things, the game is pretty much awesome, if you had more days to make it, probably it would be just perfect. Great work.

It would be nice if there was a way to skip dialogue in the beginning of the game.
I love the idea, and the whole thing really. but like others have stated, if you made sure the dehydration thing went down slower and the food went down slower it would be nice
