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! :)

It only took me 5 years but I've finally figured out how to escape the arena! I never thought I would see this day :-)

If you are curious and don't plan on solving it on your own, you can see how to do it here: Imgur.com

Now I'm stuck trying to figure out how in the world its possible to get to the Cornucopia before the other tributes have even stepped off their pedestal without some crazy arena settings. Or how you can get more than 14 hitpoints and survive a landmine without changing the default settings. Any ideas?

Hey there, long time no see! :) Congratulations on sticking with it and finally figuring out how to escape from the arena! :)

To reach the Cornucopia before the opening gong, you don't need unusual arena settings, or at least nothing more unusual than what it requires to escape from the arena...

To get 14 or more hitpoints in a standard arena, which means you might be able to survive a landmine, I'm sure you can figure it out if you just look at things in a crazy enough manner... ;)

Add player models?

There's a certain amount of player customization available already: You can define each tribute's height, select among 10 different hairstyles, and enter the tribute's name.

However, you can't switch away from block models, and can't have custom bitmap textures for tributes either. That's because tributes should be semitransparent so they don't completely block your view, and that the face of each tribute's block gets automatically updated over time too (specifically as their health changes, and as they wield or wear different items).

Hello
Your game is great
I want to know, is it still updated?
If so, what are you working on?

Thanks! :) The Hunger Games Simulation can be considered a stable game at this point. There hasn't been major features added to it since the release of version 3.2 in 2016. However, there will be releases of it in the future, at least for bug fixes and other maintenance. The Hunger Games Simulation is a applet that comes with Daedalus, and I've been doing Daedalus releases since 2001, so it's not going to be completely abandoned. :)

So do you think you will make a survivor game ?, I find it really weird how there isn t an actual modern one today not since the ds version , and think that there shold be a way better one , Like how survivor is nowadays .

No, I'm not working on a "Survivor" game at this time. However maybe I will in the future, because I've long been a fan of the TV series! :) I see a Survivor video game (or Big Brother which is very similar) 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 dislikes people who are stronger, 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 if they're on the jury. You then do things around camp (like find idols), put forth effort in challenges (and maybe get injured if you're too reckless in them), and just chat with others in various ways, to affect these ratings each day. Note that Survivor could potentially be a text only game and still cover all the above, although 3D graphics would of course be nice too.

Note that Daedalus (which runs the Hunger Games Simulation) also comes with various other games, including accurate simulations of several challenges used on Survivor. There are 10 separate Maze solving challenges, along with a "Survivor Squares" game in which you try to run the other castaways out of room before they run you out of room. :) For an example screenshot, see Astrolog.org

It would be super amazing if there were more of a roleplay element to it like a training center and training scores, so you could socialize early and get alliances as well as see who is a threat. I know you're probably very limited to what you can do with this program but it's just a cool thought.

This is a cool thought, although a training center should be implemented in a way that's not only fun for the user, but also has an effect on gameplay in the arena. The training center should involve different stations to practice at, which means there should be subtle differences in gameplay based on what areas tributes choose to focus upon. For example, knife throwing makes you do more damage if you get a knife in the arena, plant identification makes you better able to avoid Nightlock berries, and so on. Being able to socialize, make pre-arena alliances, see what other tributes are focusing upon, and getting a training score, are other elements that should be a part of this.

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