To win, you just have to do these things:

—Shot the unemployed and the elderly ones.

—always feed the farmers.

—if there is a word like stare or something that sounds like the person could steal the rations, shoot them with the gun.

—Don't give children rations. (only give them when they are willing to pay you but not every time)

—sometimes reject the merchant and if they are giving money then provide them with rations but only one.

Hope you survived. uWu


FINALLY! After 3 weeks of hard grinding.

I feel like there should be a part where we can go searching for coins because these people that I get, don't last but 4-10 days at most. My record was 10 with just one other person alive. They stopped coming. They probably killed themselves in the end.


Why when I tell people "No", I still lose some rations. And it doesn't say that that people are stealing them either.


Bruh, buying all these rations is killing my wallet.


you know I didn't want to use the gun as to ensure peace among to people but that changed after having only 6 people and 4 left. it was time to use the PEW PEW. honestly its a good game. just on day 2 and so far its good 10/10

This game will scar the people of golden hearts.

I enjoyed my time with "Rations, Please", trying to do my best to ensure that everyone who could would live. 

Tragically that meant 'put together a shoot-on-sight list for anyone who steals a ration' and 'the unemployed and elderly get stiffed'. After a while, I was down to only feeding the soldiers and the farmers. Then all the soldiers were killed and I gave up.

I recommend developing this concept further into a more complete game, as it's quite excellent at getting its theme across.


... I commend thee greatly for realism beyond the history channel.

I hate that you put this together with a clear understanding, and for that I must congratulate you on successfully turning my heart to dust...



31 I started with and 1 came out including me. I just gave too many rations they started off dying. And that I might have shot a few.


I'm sorry but it's kinda long and boring imma give it a 5/10 just my opinion sorry


squeaked by with two farmers as my surviving population, lmfao


Well after killing everyone off multiple times I eventually won because...there was a Ghost that wouldn't die -.-"

Yep, I've got a bleeding heart. I gave a child who was starving an extra ration. But he was crying and...

I always gave rations to children and failed on my first try. So depressing :(

First playthrough and I survived with 5 people. And by looking at the comments, I probably did a little bit better

this is so depressing. but yay i won with 3 people. 

I survived with 4 people 48 rations


- sacrifice the students, unemployed, children

- don't give ration until they're so hungry/starving/can't go on much longer

- merchants are only useful in early days

- shoot if someone is useless and suspicious

- rations produced = max(remaining_farmers, remaining_workers)

thanks for the tips

Literally exactly what I did but I felt to guilty to admit it until now to be fair though it’s not real life

Ok I enjoyed this, though it seems the winning strategy is to kill everyone who is unemployed right at the beginning. XD

Also, if you were to update this I would make the line disappear if you shoot someone, add medicine into the ration mix and maybe allow the player to buy a number of rations at the current price before the price goes up?


i wish i could play this

I think there should be a "be attentive" option for e.g. when a young child you know has stolen before shows up (so if they try to steal again, you catch them and take back what they've stolen, so they'll be less likely to try again).


just shoot the child



I survived with 3 people


cuba sim


I won with 1 person XD

i wonder what happens if i kill everyone...

Failed at day 11 first try, but second try I won with only having 4 people left. This is a good game.


Really nice game, only problem is that, while at the beginning you try to help everyone and feel bad when people die, you soon enough stop caring and simply feed those that really need it, and shoot those that complain. 


lol same that's what i do everytime... except for the fact that i try to help everyone... i shoot everyone until there's no one left and only survive 2 days.


i killed all the kids


the funny thing is, all they do is eat, so it's usefull to kill all the unemployyed and kids first


Needs a way to deal with illness.  I had a good groove with 7 left including 3 farmers, but illness whittled me down to just 3 survivors.  Much sad.

this reminds me quite a bit of papers pleas

love it

I don’t know what is going on.


i dont know how but i survived with 1 person and 0 rations


Children remaining: 0

Compelling concept.


I found that the best strategy is to kill everyone in line at first and give rations to whoever is left. It's better than 0 and 1

Very profound and thought provoking. Poses interesting ethical questions. Got a bit repetitive when most of the pop died on my first playthrough, though. Overall, a great game.


a quick guide on the peoples jobs and age (and what dialogue means what)


farmers- produces the rations 

soldiers- help prevent people dying from violence 

workers- gives credit 

merchant- usually gives more credit then the workers BUT is very dependent on the population 

unemployed, student, and children- don't appear to do much 


It seems that the elderly are more likely to die of illness. other than that there doesn't appear to be any other significance


if they mumble, mutter, yell, demand, or threaten- either credits or rations will be stolen 

If they state they're hungry, starving, or "can't go on much longer"- they will most likely die due to starvation 

any other dialog means that they will most likely not do anything and will probably survive another day without rations

hope this helps you all and if I got anything wrong please do tell me and I'll correct it ^v^




with the death of flash theres so many games i'll never get to play :(
