An accurate simulation of "The Hunger Games". You're a tribute, fighting intelligent AI in a "battle royal" to be the last person standing. Inspired by the novels by Suzanne Collins and the movies by Lionsgate Films. This is a turned based combat game in 1st person perspective, with Roguelike elements. The randomly generated arenas feature a central "Cornucopia" filled with melee and ranged weapons along with food and other gear, surrounded by wilderness in which one can hide or forage. You may form alliances with the other tributes, and backstab or be backstabbed by your allies. In the preview image (from a special "Audience" standpoint) you can see the semicircle of 24 tributes on their platforms, the central golden Cornucopia, gear in front of and within it, and surrounding landscape containing mountains and waterways. "May the odds be ever in your favor!" :)

Hunger Games Simulation version 3.2

The new version 3.2 of the Hunger Games Simulation is downloadable here, and includes the following additions over the previous version 3.1 that was released in June 2015:

  • New Effects: 21 different sound effects for everything from cannon firings to receiving a sponsor gift (Press "-" to toggle sounds). 47 more detailed textures for landscape features and items on the ground (Press "_" to toggle textures).
  • New Actions: Display most recent events that scrolled off the top of the screen (Press " key). Take or give leadership with respect to allies, so they tend to follow or not follow you around (Press "C" toward tribute next to you).
  • New Behaviors: Tributes have different customizable heights (with Careers tending to be taller). Tributes occasionally backstab allies even before all enemies are dead, especially if the ally is weak and effectively dead weight, so beware!
  • New Settings: 14 new options for customizing the play environment, such as water depth, fog effects, Mutt behavior (whether they can swim or climb trees), and special scenarios like dead tributes rising as Mutts to create a zombie apocalypse! :)

If you could fix one thing, could it be the grid for relationship?

Perhaps changing the colors? Like more varied color other than just red, dark red, light red, purple and white.

That'd be really sweet.

It's cool you use what's probably the most obscure command in the game: Viewing the alliance grid (via "~" key or "Ctrl+F10". :) That command is mainly useful when debugging the game or playing as the Audience, as a global view of who likes/dislikes who isn't something a tribute within the game would automatically know.

I assume you want something like instead of just shades of red, have red=enemy, yellow=neutral, green=ally or such? Internally, feelings are represented by a single number, in which different numeric thresholds are the different alliance categories. Simplicity of implementation is why it shows darker colors=friendlier and lighter colors=angrier. I agree a bit more effort in that command would make the grid easier to understand.

Hey, is it possible at all you could make a Survivor-type game or even Big Brother? Like you're a random castaway or houseguest and you compete and all that (and of course ally)? That would be awesome! I feel since you made Hunger Games that it would be possible. Or maybe even make a customisable number of players and size for the squares game? I really hope you can make it. It would be awesome!
Thank you for everything you've made so far :)

Yes, I've long been a fan of the TV series "Survivor"! :) Long before "The Hunger Games" came out, I was thinking of ways to make a quality Survivor video game. :) I see it as focusing on alliances, or a more advanced version of how "The Hunger Games Simulation" keeps track of them. Survivor should track personality types, such as Person A values hard work, Person B is weak and dislike people who are stronger than they are, Person C has a "anybody but me attitude", Person D is looking for romance, and so on. Those personality types would affect how likely they are to ally, vote against somebody, and vote as a juror. You then do things around camp and in challenges each day to affect these ratings.

I just want to say I am still following the developpement of the game! I have been following it for a while now, maybe since 2015?

Anyways, I'm really eager for the next update!

Are we getting leaks anytime soon?

Thank you for your long time and continued interest. :) 2015 was when version 3.1 of the game was released. The earliest release was version 2.4 in 2013, so the longest term players have been playing it for over four years now!

Version 3.2 was only released a few months ago, so the timing of the next update (as well as the set of features that will be in it) is unknown. What I can say is that there will be a next version, and as significant features are added, screenshots and such for them will be added here. :)

In a future version,do you plan to add rain into the game?

Yes, I want to, along with snow which is very similar. :) There are various settings that come with such a feature, which would need to be (randomly) chosen or allowed to be user specifiable, such as strength of the precipitation, how long it's present for, how often it arrives, how gradual it appears and disappears, etc.

The game follows the Hunger Games right to the tee. Everything that a perfect Hunger Games must have is in this simulation. 10/10
