Armageddon Moochery - mintman - Competition Entry

It's the end of the world for most, a lucrative opportunity for you!

Talk to townsfolk and try to convince them to give you stuff, because you're "such a hero" and you're going to go "save the world."

---
This was my first LD competition, and I'm pretty happy with what I ended up with. Using some foundational library is always a good idea, and flixel came in handy for getting the small stuff out of the way quickly. I didn't have too much struggle with finding an idea, which I was stoked about.

I need to blog more next time.

I like the concept, could do with a more visual representation of your wealth and bling maybe?

Sweet game. The animation is really nice, the screenshots don't do it justice. I wish the interface was a little better organized, it took me a few minutes to figure out what everything was.

This is a great idea! Humor and theme works great:
It is dangerous to 'go'(die) alone.. take this.. the approval of your peers and their stuff to sweeten the burden of impending demise.
Is there a strategy to score high in this game?
I like that it's an 'RPG' where you 'fight' not to defeat but presuade others to like you.
It could have used a time bonus. haha
I would have liked it if you had to respond to the whims of people in real time..

There is actually a bit of a strategy to it, but I'll admit it isn't very clear on the first few playthroughs - each person gives items of varying qualities. Poor people will give you something like a comb or a pat on the back, and rich people might give crowns or a golden staff. I think since there isn't a wealth counter, this isn't apparent - I wanted to add a wealth counter, but ran out of time. Thanks for all the input - I might revisit this idea in the future.

Really like the concept, but I struggled to figure out a pattern. Managed 8650 in my first go though! Simple graphics work well, especially for the flexing your muscles XD

Really liked the animation. Cool concept!

A great all-around game. Lots of depth, and it's always fun interacting with AI.

Good job!
