Dodo vs Darwin

Author Comments

You play the Dodo bird. Chase the pigs away from your fruit! Bait the rats into a trap! Poop a tree! Attract your Dodo mate and try to survive!

The game was originally created during the Global Game Jam 2011, the theme of which was "extinction". The chosen art style was based on cubism. Gameplay centers around the creatues and plants that live on the island and how they interact with the dodo and with each other. The player needs to experiment to discover how it all works.

Move - WSAD or Arrow Keys
Action - X, Ctrl or Space

Game Trailer:

Fruit - Eat as many as you can, to plant trees and heal wounds
Trees - Plant lots to attract more Dodos to the island
Rats - Lure them close to a human, then watch what happens
Stones - Where rats live, be careful around them
Dodos - Help them when they get into trouble! Bait their attackers away
Eggs - Lay them close to the nest to protect them from rats
Baby Dodos - Take good care of them! Always try to keep them close to you
