Welcome to the Potato Game! This was written by BleuLlama on April 28, 2013 for the Ludum Dare 26 competition, whose topic is "Minimalism".

I wasn't sure that I'd have time to work on this, but I came up with a "game" that I would be able to "write" in the two hours I was able to devote to it. This is that game!

I stripped down the idea of a game to its most minimal basics as I see them:

  1. Interactivity
  2. Conflict
  3. Choice
  4. Achievement
  5. A Win/Lose result

How To Play

To play, click the "PLAY" link below. You will be guided through the gameplay. You will be asked questions which will determine your game result. Basically a simple "choose your own adventure", but with potatoes.

You must try to collect 5 potatoes, without The Potato Monster stealing them from you. You start with one potato, and if you run out of potatoes, you lose.


Note: it's very easy to cheat. Please don't. Thanks!
