Crazy Old Cat Lady

by Indivicivet - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Not really a full game, the idea is based around you being a crazy old cat lady or something, but even your animals (not just cats) don't like you, so they'll move away from you. Animals of the same species will not mind being nearby though. The actual gameplay is based around getting a certain amount of animals into various boxes. If I had more time and was more experienced there would be some kind of popup and a chance to generate a new setup, but oh well. As of the moment there's no way to win or get score, and you have to restart the app to get a new setup. The controls are WASD to move, and arrow keys are some tickrate controls I was playing around with (set, increase, decrease).

This was my first time making a game with C++ and I am pretty new to the language, so I'm fairly happy with how it turned out. Windows download is linked, but it includes the source and all the assets so you should be able to build it for another platform if you have a C++ compiler and the SDL libraries.

I need to say that SDL is a requirement, you need to download all the DLLs and throw them into the game folder for it to work.

Didn't feel alone, it was a good take on the sheep herding style game, but you obviously didn't finish it in time.

Next time please include used dlls so I don't have to run, search for another missing library, put it there, run etc... for some reason game always ends as soon as it starts unless it's started from command line.

I've herded cats for a while, got enough of them on required places, returned to my place, nothing happened :(

Good idea, too bad you didn't have time to really implement it.

I'm actually kind of appalled that almost a week has gone by and SDL.dll is still not included in this submission. Please fix this so I can play and rate the game.

It requires but is missing:

It contains but probably does not required .psd files.

When I run it (windows explorer and command line) it flashes a window up but closes immediately.

In summary I've tried but I can't run it.

You didn't package SDL.dll in your distribution :-( Can't run it.
