Your job is to pass out rations in a war-torn country, with hardly enough to go around. You must tell the survivors "you only get one".

Who do you decide to feed? Do you want the soldiers to stay alive to protect the common folk? Do you save the women and children, the aged, the unemployed? Will you take bribes, or succumb to violence?

Their fates are in your hands.

Initially created in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 28. The theme was "You Only Get One". We placed:

#3 Theme
#35 Overall
#43 Mood

Instructions
Click the ration to hand it to the current survivor in line, click the X card to deny a ration, or click the gun to eliminate.

Survive for 25 days.

Survived with 4 people because the game bugged out around day 14, skipped the gameplay phase and gave me the same result (deathless) each day

just saved one person bc it is most effective rest  got killed by me

I just have too many feelings to play this game.

Well, that was rather horrifying. No matter how hard you try to be fair, ppl still going to die bc theres just not enough food. Only seven made it on my first run - and all children died despite me newer denying them food. The most heartbreaking part is growing numbers of rations in contrast with only few ppl to eat it. Makes you think a lot.

Genocide Route

Survived on my first game, two workers and a merchant

(+2)

Just kill all the unemployed, child and student

Spared the merchants, workers and farmers.


Shot the unemployed and students to prevent stealing. Rather immorral but after playing the first time noticed how bad stealing in this game does to your progress.

Killed everyone accept the farmers, and won with just one farmer left, the others died of illness, even though I fed them good, especially those who paid...

Random illness is lame. Farmers are the most important to keep a live, but not much you can do when random illness takes them out.

PLEASE....PLEASE tell me more of these types of games are on the way??

I loved the game Great job on everything. I got my people down to 2 with 5 days left then on day 23 the farmer died so it left me with a solider to win the game. 

bro that one guy just pay 14 ratio :skull:

I had accidentally whittled the population down to a sustainable solo farmer, with enough food to go around. I thought I was finally going to win a game...then, random illness death.

Next game, I semi-intentionally whittled the population down to a couple of farmers and a kid. The farmers died of illness and violence, the kid starved.

Shot every non-farmer day 1. All but one of the farmers died of illness. One of the children came back to life, then died of illness. Amazingly, the last farmer survived (even though it was boring to keep him alive).

Frustrating. The only way you have any chance of survival is killing the non-farmers (or letting them die), and even then you can be screwed over by random deaths.

My best: I give all ration on first day, and kill stealers to see which ones worth saving. First end of the day, I check how many farmers I got then next day all farmers must survive. 

This game is really unfair.

i killed 21 people by the 5th day

I love this game, I never get bored of it <3

why is it not working for me
