Dining Philosophers

by Spelchan - Mini LD 54 Entry

The dining philosophers is a logic problem designed to demonstrate the deadlock problem. For Mini-Ludum Dare#54 I have turned it into a racing game. Eat as much rice as you can before the rice is gone. The philosopher who eats the most wins.

While the total development time for this game was well under 48 hours (well under 24 hours as well), work was spread out over 5 days.

I win in first go. Not exactly racing game, but fun. And since I up-eat all this guys from the past, I wandering - may I be philosopher too. Or isn't it?...

Won first time 16-11-8-8-7. Fun and weird game, some distractions or simple secondary (background) task might up the stakes a bit.
