    Survival of the Fitterest - MaximSchoemaker - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    This game is about survival of the fittest and natural selection. Although it's not really natural, cause you get to play with it :3.
    The goal of the game is to move as far away from the start as you can. But the farther away you get the tougher your foes become.
    You control the evolution of your species by selection the best based on categories and either only have them lay eggs or just leave the weaker guys behind (see which one you can morally handle :P).
    Your children have stats similar to yours, but randomly increased or decreased. This way if you keep choosing the right specimen, better creatures will evolve.
    Please download for the fullscreen experience ^^

    Oh dear. On Mac it just sits there bouncing in the dock.

    @turnip, that's weird, it doesn't do that on my Mac. It's an .app compiled by my Flash so there's nothing much I can change about it. I don't think you need flash (locally) installed because that's what the whole .app thing is for. So yeah, I dunno... :(

    I never found out how the game works exactly. The number at the top is not the same as the group size, how come? How do you select individuals except by leaving some behind? How can I see if the stats improve?

    some of the mechanics i feel arent clear, group size, when do i get eggs, etc. pretty fun though and could be interesting if you kept working on this!
