Hamsi Bro

by broepi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

--- Your one and only hamster bro ---

<It's like a Hamster-Gotchi>

This is my hamster. There are many hamsters like it, but this one is mine.
My hamster is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My hamster, without me, is a dead useless hamster. Without my hamster, I am useless. I must care for it.
I must pick poo beans faster than it can shit, it is trying to bother me.
I must give it water before it dehydrates.

If your hamster bro dies, you need to unpack the game files again to start with another bro.

github project page:

The whole game including the graphics und sounds was crafted exclusively with the help of free software (free as in free speech and also free beer):
* GNU C++ Compiler / Make / BinUtils
* SDL 2.0 Library
* Audacity
* (GNU) Linux Mint / MATE Desktop / Pluma Editor

Funny little "Tamagotchi" (Spell check required) game. Not very much to do, but my daughters love it, so now I have it running on my other monitor for as long as it lives :-)

Hi @zconnelly13
Try to execute if you have a 64bit Linux. I'm sorry, had no time to bundle a 32bit Linux version, yet :(
I'm also very thankful for each report on missing library file-complains. One GNU/Linux is not like the other ...

Thank you all for your feedback.
Don't forget to clean your Hamsi Bro from time to time! Too much poo beanys on the screen let its health decrease faster.

I love my HamsiBro! A very cute game with a lovely mainchar. A little more interaction would be cool (the ability to pet him, for example) and I would love to hear a happy background music. Good job!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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 ( 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.
