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!" :)

0 comments by Cruiser1 on Jun 5th, 2015


The new version 3.1 of the Hunger Games Simulation is downloadable here, and includes the following additions over the previous version 3.0 that was released in September 2014:

  • New Arenas: Play in tropical island arenas, ruined city arenas, and even compose your own custom arena bitmaps (sample arena of the 12 Districts included). Beware the moving firewall of lava that forces remaining tributes together.
  • New Actions: New commands to propose an alliance (which may or may not be accepted), and free fellow tributes from Nets. New map which only shows other tribute locations. Net objects can be set on the ground as traps.
  • New Visuals: Movie of each day's fallen tributes is projected into the sky at night. Your movement in game smoothly animates showing intermediate frames. Tribute graphics show item worn when looking at them. Nine times as many chat responses, depending on personality and relative strength.
  • New Settings: 26 new options for customizing the play environment, such as number of Mutts and when they're released into the arena, difficulty levels that don't indicate who died when the cannon fires, and option to automatically give tributes random District appropriate names.

Yes, although I don't have time at the moment, so it might be several weeks before it appears. The version 2.5 and 3.0 videos didn't appear right away either.

In the hunger.ds file, the line starting with "SetStrings %ZNameB" contains the random tribute names. There are 5 names per position, i.e. 5 D1 Female names, then 5 D1 Male names, and so on until finally 5 Mutt names. You can't add or insert names without reprogramming other parts of the script, but you can change/replace names. 5 names per position means you can't have Games with more than 10 tributes per District before names start getting repeated.

Yes, sound effects would be a good addition. :) The download is currently only 1.4M, so there's plenty of room for audio files. Other nice places for sound would be trumpets when you win, and a sound effect when hitting or being hit by a weapon, e.g. slashing sound for sword, chopping sound for axe, etc.

I found a bug. In the "All Settings" i change "e", but than a game or two later the "e" gets reset back to 0. Am i doing something wrong or is this a bug?

High level arena types (such as "F" for Forest, or "U" for Ultimate) as selected through the "Shift+F2" command, are each implemented by changing a subset of the 52 low level variables in "All Settings" appropriately. Therefore changing the arena type may clobber settings you've altered in All Settings.

However, if you don't change the arena type, then the All Settings values shouldn't change. In fact, if you change a low level setting that's controlled by the current arena type, the game will notice that, and the arena type will be turned off for you, i.e. the arena type in "Shift+F2" will be blank which means don't touch any settings for future games.

If you're not changing the arena type, and a low level setting is still getting changed, then I'd be curious as to the steps you took to encounter that. In other words, after changing "e", what exactly did you do in your next game or two, and at what point exactly did "e" get set to 0?

this also happens with the "c" setting. when i try to edit out the wild item spawns and than edit out another feature a pop-up shows up talking about an error and than the "c" gets reset to "0". But when I play with the "c" set up it works just fine.

What was the exact text of your pop-up error message? The "All Setting" command requires entries in a certain format. Variables are only A-Z and a-z, and they can only be set to positive numbers, so for example "A-10" will give an error (because "-10" is invalid), as will "@10" (because there's no "@" setting).

Bug: When playing as mutt (yeah, that's possible :D) your hunger meter slowly drops although other mutts stay at 500.

AI Mutts intentionally don't need food, so they can spend all their time attacking/hunting tributes, instead of having to run around searching for Berries and such. Similarly, AI Mutts never pick up items. However, if you play as a Mutt yourself (select "District 14" to do so) then you are treated like a player so have a hunger meter, and therefore are allowed to pick up items.

Also, when you play as the mutt you can also pick up and use different weapons. One time I made it to the cornucopia as a mutt and started killing people with a sword.

Internally, Mutts are a type of tribute, technically from "District 14", just with some different graphics and AI behavior. That's why you can play as a Mutt. Note you can even tame Mutts by giving them items. Mutts won't pick up items on their own, but they will use things like First Aid, armor, and even weapons better than their Teeth if given them. :)
