Alone amongst Kittens

by Rylius - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Stranded somewhere in the nowhere, confronted with intrusive kittens, you need to build walls and houses to fend them off and ultimately collect resources for the rocket which will bring you into space.

Collision is crap. Expect kittens/yourself going through the roof occasionally.

Graphics are crap too. Programmer art. :)

Edit: Added a batch file in case the JAR doesn't work.
Edit2: When prompted to build the launchpad/rocket, follow the green arrow and press the down arrow/s key!

Yeah... collisions are crap. Since every time I start to dig for more metal some kitten goes through the wall and starts to breed on my legs, I'm kinda unable to do anything. Good idea, but it alternated between boring and uplayable (I really have no idea how to escape wall moving kittens :/)
Very good music.

I had some fun with this one but my game ended suddenly when I ran off the right side of the map and was forced to run right forever.

I also had no idea how to "build a launchpad" which prompted the above misadventure.

Ugh - on third try I got to the rocket building stage and the cats just glitched their way through it and killed me, after spending so much time mining the metal I really don't want to try again. Why not disable the death condition when you know the enemies can walk through walls and make the game unfair, at least then we could play to the end =/

If the collision problem was fixed though, this could probably be a fun game.

Couldn't play. It' just saying "Loading Music..." all the time. All i can do is Toggling FPS and Pausing with Esc.

OS X 10.7

Loading the music takes a while, just wait until the text disappears.

Gave up waiting for music to load (~5 minutes). OSX 10.5.

Got an 'OutOfMemoryException' which caused it to get stuck on loading music. I fixed this by adding the -Xmx1024m argument in the bat file. There were too many kittens and it was impossible to jump up while walking into a block which made movement kind of hard. So I didn't finish collecting all the metal.
