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. :)

What do you mean "can't read the files"? Exactly what have you done, and exactly what error messages were displayed when you tried? Normally, version 3.0 should run with less fuss than previous versions. For example, 2.5 had a dependency on Microsoft.VC80.CRT, and would display an error on the odd system that didn't have it installed, requiring one to install it manually. Can you install and/or run the previous version on your laptop?

Hello! Currently I'm extremely close to breaking out of the arena, and I could use some clues!

SPOILER WARNING, DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FIGURING OUT HOW TO BUST OUT OF THE ARENA YOURSELF, THERE ARE KEY DETAILS PICTURED INSIDE THE LINK.

Yes, you are indeed close to breaking out. :) I can say (no spoilers) that what you do is not affected by random chance, and not something you have to repeat a bunch of times. Once you know what to do, you can do it anywhere that qualifies, and it always works. :)

Indeed, as the Audience the "dig" command will open up a launch tube. Think of that as the Gamemakers intentionally reopening a tube for whatever reason, instead of a tribute in the arena figuring out how to break it open (which is the challenge). Playing as the Audience/Gamemaker is effectively "God mode", in that you can easily sponsor a favored tribute with all the best items, or even just immediately kill everybody else off. :)

The Audience mode features (including giving objects to tributes i.e. sponsoring them, reviving slain Mutts, and terminating tributes) are described at the page Indiedb.com

In summary, to give an item to a tribute while playing as the Audience press F10 or "g" hotkey. To specify which object to give press F2 or "i" and type the object name. To resurrect a Mutt in your current square press F7 or "a", and to destroy a tribute (or any landscape object) press F8 or "t". :)

I believe I found a way to make a trap. You take a pick and start digging right to the bottom of the earth, before that you hit water and put food in it and wait for tributes to fall for it. It may not work tho.

This wont work since AI is smart enough to "climb" down instead of taking fall damage.

You are on to something, though. Since AI can now step on landmines I think you may be able to use weapons/food in the wilderness to lure tributes for easy kills.

Oh, that's what I though.

Could surrounding mines something could work?

Yes, AI will never take falling damage intentionally, although somebody can make an AI take falling damage by for example chopping down a tree they're in. AI can step on landmines, but only if they step down upon one from a position in the air (with space under their feet). If the AI is standing on the ground, then they'll always notice landmines and never step on them.

This means you can make traps with landmines: Place them next to a square which is next to terrain an AI is likely to be clinging to the side of, so they can step off onto the landmine. Surround a valuable item with landmines and AI will be attracted to your trap. Ignoring landmines, even just a valuable item on the ground near you can keep tributes from running away (since its attraction will counteract the repulsion from your powerful self. :)
