Lovely, here is my tribute to your game... :)
A downloadable game
Two weeks before his wedding, Tom Roland is sent abroad for a very important job. He couldn’t say no if he wanted to be promoted.
In the middle of the flight in the middle of the night and due to bad weather, the plane suffered an accident and Tom survived.
Unconscious, he woke up on an island beach. “What happened? Where am I?” he asked himself. Would he be alone there?
Now, he must build a raft to go away from there and be in time for his wedding.
Will he get it? It depends on you.
You handle Tom Roland and he has to get four mandatory objects to go away from the island:
Probably some of the objects he has to look for are in the island cannibal’s huts (it seems Tom is not alone). Tom will have to be very careful because they are anxious to eat fresh meat. And very possibly too, the huts are closed, but he could be granted access if he finds the correct key that opens the door individual hut’s door.
Tom is faster than cannibals, but they are stronger than him. So, if they catch him, he will have failed in his mission, he will never see his beloved girlfriend again and worst of all, the cannibals will eat him.
Also, there are a lot of camouflaged snakes that if they bite Tom, he will lose energy and hydration.
He can find some objects that will help him on his mission:
Tom uses a backpack and he can hold up to seven items. Also, he doesn’t like to leave them on the ground. If he picks an object up and later he doesn’t want it, you can make Tom exchange it for another object, but don't leave one of them on the ground.
Also, there are other objects that Tom doesn’t keep in his backpack (why? Tom prefers to consume them instantly):
The game ends when:
Lives? Who has several lives? Cats. You can consider each envelope as an extra life, and there are a lot of them on the island.
Points? Who wants points where life is in danger? Get the goal in the shortest time possible, take a photo and share it with #CastawayACPC.
