Farmer Joe Animal Farm

by Raimonds - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The goal of the game is to collect as much money as possible. All you need to do is buy animals, feed and sell them when they are fully grown. 1/2 (fully grown/all). Be aware! When night comes the bad guys will appear. They will try to get your animal, but if you have potatoes you can throw at them and they will flee. (type the letters above to throw. Tab to clear the input).

P.S. If you can not kill any wolf, remember to buy potatoes.

Feel free to leave feedback. Was not able to work on it both days. Enjoy.

Nice idea and pretty graphics but could use a bit more activity early game, I found myself sitting and waiting for something to happen.

Hmm, well I don't know :D
Yeah painted graphics is a nice touch but game itself...
Well, okey it has its own mood... Kind of like mood of sitting at the summer being bored and waiting for flies to come over to squash them...

It just that in this game flies manage to eat your food -_-

In other words, not a good mood this game has :D

I really like the art style, but as those before me mentioned, the game is a little slow. I found it really hard - Perhaps I'm not great at typing random numbers, I don't know.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
