Lonely Island

by sanojian - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my first Ludum Dare entry. Can you save the lonely castaway from starvation? HTML5 game with Flash for sound, keyboard controls. Should work anywhere. IE<9 your mileage may vary.

Just FYI, I played this on Safari for the Mac, and it seemed to work fine.

Thats great! There is no reason it should not run everywhere, but I just never tried it. Thanks!

I died once, and completed it on my second try. I didn't get the hunger/water/energy mechanic at first. It seems like you only regain energy if you move around?

I thought this was pretty fun, even though it was pretty simple.

I liked the weird voice!

Good job!

"It seems like you only regain energy if you move around?"

I got so used to dancing around the fire that I forgot it was a bug and never fixed it. Whoops!

The weirdness of the voice was enhanced by the fact that my kids were sleeping in the next room and I did the sounds at the end when I was pretty exhausted.

Love the mechanics. Well balanced, great that you can understand what to do but still need to do it efficiently enough to survive. Design is very elegant, deserves another pass of polish after the compo!

I like the game mechanics, I think they could fit a RTS or tower defense game very well. Pretty good!

Haha we really did almost make the same game. I absolutely love the voices and the mechanics are very solidly implemented. My only gripe is that you need to move around constantly to recover stamina but that wasn't to much a problem at all. Overall very nice game, congrats. :)

No, it was a good LOL. The voice cracks me up every time.
And... I must suck because I can't seem to make a fishing pole at all. Fun little game with lots of charm! This was refreshing.

*Pro tip* - you have to drag the log into the ocean before you can fish. Thanks for the feedback!

I think it's a good game. The theme was shown well, I thought the audio was quite corny :P and I had to keep trying to win, although I wasn't able to before boredom set in. It could look better and the gameplay was there, but it felt like it was still in production.

Yes it needed more playtesting. It can get tedious to build the boat. The corniness is a defect of the author. Tragically there is no fix for that.

Solid little game. It's a little strange that your energy goes down when walking over logs, even when you aren't dragging them. Also, the fire dancing was weird, but not really much of a problem.

"your energy goes down when walking over logs" Hmm, that is a bug. I never noticed that.

It is well done and fits the theme completely, but it is too simple for me.
