    Description:

    You wake up on a strange island, alone and stranded you must use your ingenuity to make an escape.

    Controls:

    WASD or arrow keys to move.

    Left click an item to bring up it's menu (hint, some items get more actions when in your inventory).

    I won :)
    Loved the cameo.

    Thought the text/status line at the at the bottom was a bit too subtle though, I didn't notice it until half way through and even after that often missed updates.

    chopped some trees, couldn't figure out how to make rope. Had reeds, axe. coconuts, and tree trunks. :(

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree about the status line being too subtle, but I completely ran out of time before I could change it.

    @increpare I'll just say this: Some items can be combined with themselves.

    Cute little game. Looking at your blog, I kinda wish you had left him as a stick figure!

    Pretty similar to "Lonely Island - sanojian", but I won't hold that against you. :)

    Good job!

    It's a bit easy, but I enjoyed it. You could have added more challenging features to it. The rope took the longest time to make ... But then I realized the only resource left :P

    Good game, keep developing :P

    Thank you for the kind words! :D

    @Mattuw I had so much in mind to add, like day/night cycles and much more resources needed to make into the boat but in the end it all turned out to be a bit overambitious and I ran out of time. I'll defiantly continue with it later.

    @defiantburrito Yeah it seem's to be quite a common take on the alone theme as I've seen other people with similar games. It's quite cool seeing how other people work with a similar idea.

    Nice. Simple but enjoyable.

    I found it kind of odd (from a gameplay standpoint) that you needed to open coconuts before eating/drinking them.

    I won. Nice.

    Hey, we made almost the same game :) Same name too. I like your combining mechanism. Would have been interesting to have different combinations result in different outcomes. Maybe after the judging? Nice game!

    Yeah the rope took me a while as well. I even laid out all 8 logs on the ground in the shape of a box. Felt like an idiot. BUT I WON! ... but I accidentally left my friend behind. :(

    So much better than CrineMaft.

    Seems a lot like Survival Kids on the gameboy color. Haven't played yet but am about to

    I just finished it and it has the same exact goal yet it's much shorter and extremely easy. It's not bad though

    Bit too short and simple, but it must be good game anyway since I've made something very similar for LD21 :)
