Lonely God Dude

by alfredofreak - Jam Entry

The God Dude, the god of the universe, is a very lonely omnipotent individual. He is stuck in a big, empty universe with no one else around.

He decides to change this by making little Dudes to entertain him! He is, after all, A GOD!!!

The only problem is that the God Dude doesn't like death. If five of his Dudes kill each other, he will get so depressed that he will send the rest of them into the darkness of the universe. So, see how long you can last!

Info:
At the second evolution onwards, the dudes will start firing at each other. You can click to heal them one point of health. Health is 4 * evolution level, so they start out with 4 health at the beginning of the game.

At the final evolution, they split into two baby dudes and it starts again.

Record thus far is one minute and four seconds (my record). *PLEASE POST A SCREENSHOT IF (when) YOU BEAT MY RECORD!!! :D *

NOTE: if you can't get the game to run, PLEASE make sure you have .NET 4.0 installed! You can download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17851

A nice concept but I found it hard to know which dudes were going to die. I know you make them darker but a health bar would have been easier for the player.

Interesting concept... but can I ask for more than a minute of gameplay :P

I felt it could've used more interaction to play out the gameplay a bit more.

After coming of a string of platformers to rate, it's nice to see a more original concept. Could see going a lot of ways with this. Nice!

Could use a bit more player feedback... As I wasn't quite sure my clicks were doing anything.

I can't figure out what to do, do you simply just watch the dudes attack each other? It seemed like just a demonstration video, really really couldn't figure out what to do sorry.

Oh right click to heal, still didn't seem too fun. I changed my score to reflect my new knowledge.
