Caveman Speak

by AdricZero - Jam Entry

Caveman Speak is about evolving language to the point it can be used by a community of cavemen to effectively accomplish goals.

You start out by trying to get various cavemen to complete simple assigned tasks. Each time a task is finished, the language evolves and more complicated tasks are given.

Ultimately, you use your stronger and clearly evolved language to more effectively hunt prey.

I'm sorry. I couldn't view your system information at that link. It looks like had a .txt file extension but was all unreadable binary. I tried just now on Windows Vista 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit and it works. I did try Windows XP and it did not work, due to some vsync error in pyglet. I'm looking into that.

Great idea and even better sfx. I couldn't get Oorg to move at all on level 5 though. Ran fine on my win7 64 bit system.

My only complaint is that Oorg (or any of the cavemen) didn't obey the directional commands.

Could have used another couple levels to really explore the concept, but this is definitely one of the most original entries this contest!

Haha, very funny and very original as well. Sounds were perfect. Sometimes it was like herding cats.
It was a bit short. For me you could expand this.
