- Update: Fixed Bug where game hangs on later levels!

An alien with an insatiable appetiate has attacked your camp. Satiate its cravings using any means necessary.. Even if it means sacrificing your people.

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 43 with the theme "Sacrifices must be made". I may make a post-compo version that has a better tutorial and an endgame (craft something to kill the alien)

Space - follow (when near person)
Z - assign to building (when near building)
X - remove all current followers


- Game ramps up in difficulty. Plan accordingly
- Make propaganda towers to increase human count, then dispensers to allow more to be processed, then hospitals to decrease effects of stress
- A dispenser produces 50 food and 10 seconds to process. You must take this into account. If you only have one dispenser, you will need at least 30 seconds to produce 150 food.
- Stress naturally dissipates with time
- You can keep pressing space and make more than one person follow you.
- It takes 30 seconds for stress to produce burnout, hospitals allow them to work longer by another 30 seconds

Good Game, Main Difficulty Spike Is The Initial Try And First 3 Or 4 Waves. Once I Figured Out 1 Or 2 Things I Got Major Surplus Of Food. Safe To Safe I Beat The Game Since There Is No Real End Game But The Difficulty Stops Rising. Was Fun, Controls Were Nice Though Wish There Was A Way To Decide Who In Your Konga Line Goes To What You Are Assigning Someone Too. Music Was A Really Mellow Beat

I really want to like this, but the control scheme makes it hard to. I think if the keyboard controls were replaced with a smoother mouse interface along the lines of a drag and drop mechanic, it would be more solid. You just end up losing entirely too much time chasing people down, not being entirely sure if they are following you when you head back to a building.

Surprisingly addictive, great work! I got to 1000 food!

I like the concept, but having to chase my people down and hoping I can pick them up with Space was really annoying. They also lag behind quite a bit when you're leading them to a place.

Listen guys, I understand, working the farm is not for everybody. You get stressed out, need to take a break. It's just normal, everybody goes though that. You don't have to worry.
On an entirely unrelated note, let me give you a quick tour of the meat grinder that we put people into when there is not enough food for the monster.
