Save the tiny world!

by davidllanos22 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

First of all sorry for any grammatical/spelling error, I'm spanish :)

I'm pretty happy with the result, finally my main focus was the art...never expect that haha It's the second game I finished, and I've just started learning programming 5 months ago! so everything went so well using the things I learned on that time!

It was my first LD and it was amazing, sometimes I tought about surrender, but finally I managed to came up with something playable :D I will be in the next LD FOR SURE!




The gameplay and the controls are explained in the game, so you just have to follow the instructions :D



Known bugs:

-The Pigz and the Npcs don't collide with each other..so they are collapsing all the time...

-The animation of the boy and the woman sometimes don't correspond to the direction the are walking to...

-The animation of the Pigz works so bad, dunno why!



Tools used:

-Eclipse with Java and Slick 2D

-Paint.NET, GraphicsGale and Paint

-Ableton live , BFXR


Please, rate and comment :)

Looks awesome, but I wish there was a better way to deal with those Pigz! ;) Great graphics.

Really enjoyed this game, fun and challenging, still haven't beaten it yet, best is 9/10 so far.

This is pretty neat. I liked the mechanic of trying to lure the pigs away from the houses so you could get the NPCs there safely :)

Fun game :D
Achieved 10/10 saved once I realised a good strategy for keeping people safe/trapping pigs :D

Have you got any advice on how to beat the game?

I use villagers as food for the pigs to lure them into "good" places, but for the part on the right side of the river, I can't seem to find "good" places. >_<

Dude, what are you telling me that I have great graphics? Your graphics are way better! Enjoyed your game, it's hard, but in a good way. Good job.

Those pigs were terrifying, I loved it :D

At first I was trying to find a way to 'play dead' like the person at the start tells us, but after a little while I figured out that it referred to the NPCs.

When I got the last person to the house I was on 1 heart and had a pig right next to me... I guess I sacrificed myself to save them, how sad :'(

Anyway, I really enjoyed this one!

Why make it in Java if you only have a Windows version? Release a JAR or a Mac version please. :-) Or an applet.

can't test this since i'm on linux and you didn't copy the linux or mac versions of lwjgl into the folder :/

Apr 27, 2012 @ 7:52am

Great graphics, interesting idea. The game is a way too fast.

Excellent music and good (if hard) gameplay. Looks nice too!

Apr 27, 2012 @ 8:55pm

Pretty good job! Great graphics and gameplay! Had to ragequit though because this game is damn hard. You could have added some way to heal or atleast slow the pigs down.

7/10 is my best score. The graphics are really great; I love them. The idea is original and well implemented, which makes the game fun.

I wasn't able to save everyone because the enemies were too fast. But it looks great and the audio was good, and it was pretty fun as well.

I found it really hard to evade the pigs, but liked the whole escort mission vibe.

I would play if you had a Web or OSX version.

Quite an addictive game. Three hearts was just right. Funny how the villagers can't die but just pretend to be dead. I really enjoyed playing it. Got 9/10, will try to get 10 later this week
