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 the 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 forest containing mountains and waterways. "May the odds be ever in your favor!" :)

2 comments by Cruiser1 on Sep 4th, 2014


The new version 3.0 of The Hunger Games Simulation is downloadable here, and includes the following additions over the previous version 2.5 that was released in October 2013:

  • New Landscapes: Play in a "Catching Fire" style clock arena. Climb over rolling hills, and experience a gradual day/night cycle. Head downhill or dig deep enough and you can find water. Play in mixed terrain arenas, such as half sandy desert and half rocky wasteland.
  • New Customizations: Set number of Districts (1-13), and number of tributes per District (e.g. play games with over 200 opponents). Assign names to tributes (e.g. "Katniss" instead of "District 12 Female"), and select hairstyles. Try out a special wraparound torus arena that goes on forever.
  • New Items: Blowtorch weapon can be used to dismantle the Cornucopia walls, burn down trees, or melt unwanted items. Guns and grenades are powerful weapons very rarely available from sponsors. Armor reduces damage from enemy hits, and nightvision goggles allow seeing in darkness. You can even reuse sponsor gift parachutes to glide through the air.
  • New Enemies: Some trees contain "tracker jacker" wasp nests. Chop down the tree and they'll sting whoever's nearby making them hallucinate! Feast events draw remaining tributes back together to fight. Rebel against the Capitol, and escape from the arena (if you can figure out how. :)

Whoa, I can no longer find this game on the top 100 list anywhere. That's odd for a game to go from top 10 to nowhere.

The IndieDB top 100 list is updated hourly, and only considers visitors to a game page within the past 1-24 hours. Therefore a ranking can change radically up or down from hour to hour, and especially from day to day. Games frequently jump up quite a bit if they get mentioned on a popular site or something, and then trail off over time (at least until the next event happens). This game suddenly jumped to the top 10 last month, and has been gradually dropping since then. Right now it's #100-something, but it was still in the top 100 part of the day yesterday. :)

One complete day/night cycle is 200 turns, so divide the total turn count by 200 to get the number of days that have passed. A 22505 turn game is over 112 days, or 3.75 months. That's indeed a super long game, and must have been in a large arena to have enough food to keep tributes alive for that long (especially since sponsor gifts stop coming after day 10).

Well, one new feature that should immediately be apparent is that there's now animation when moving from square to square or rotating in place. You no longer just jump to the new location, but rather intermediate frames are shown along the way, making everything much smoother. :) You can of course specify the smoothness or turn it off altogether.

Currently the only way to create a new alliance after a game has started (both for you and the AI) is to give a nice item (or enough items) to somebody with the "give" command. Yes, sometimes tributes will throw things at you, which makes it much harder to ally with them, because they now consider you "enemy". Therefore, it's good to approach tributes you want to ally with at an oblique angle so they can't get in a ranged attack, before you give them stuff.

Yes, there will be a new "propose alliance" command in the next version. :) It allows offering an alliance to somebody from a distance. It may not work (they may decline or even get mad at you) but still it's a way for poorer tributes who don't have good gear to offer, to be able to ally with each other for mutual benefit.
