Hi all! This is my entry for Ludum Dare 43. I had some issues with mouse sensitivity. See if the [ESC] menu mouse sensitivity option helps you!

FRIENDGUN is a short (5-10 minute) game where you have a gun and many friends to put into it. What you do with that power is up to        y  o u.

good game bro!!

I loved the game and the very innovative concept of using NCP's. Near the end I was screaming at the screen RUN LITTLE ONES! RUN FROM THIS DOOMED TOWN! as I tried to decide who's next. Your game made me feel like a hero then a regretful serial killer. Great idea and great execution. 10/10 would pay for an extended version.

Maybe the real gun was the friends we made along the way...

Great concept, great music.
Would love to see a full game based on the concept "npcs are bullets"
haven't had the chance to make attepts to find multiple ending but I think (and hope) that there are a couple more than the obvious "shoot at the invaders"

I'd really like to expand! I'll release a cheap paid game with 2 or 3x the content.

There is one alternative ending! Just don't jump over the gate (it bugs the ending and I gotta patch that out).

(1 edit)

I had already tried jumping over everything since jump is totally OP (it could be thoroughly removed imho since it isn't required by the gameplay itself), but found nothing - I am trying a couple of times everyday, let's hope I can get the secret ending (i only got the "you could not enter" and "you could not save the village" which I assume are not the endings I am looking for)

PS I am really looking forward to your next paid release, in my opinion with a little bit more humor and funny dialogues with decisive choices, with more atmospherical enviroments and with the right plethora of music, this game has the potential to become something not only fun to play but also could deliver significant contrasting emotions. Don'tknow if you have played undertale but i think you have in your hands agreat "engine" to develop an exceptional adventure

PPS feel free to contact me through email/whatever, if you need to share your ideas or know anoter person's opiniona bout features etc, I'd be glad to help such a promising author

I love this game so much! The Atmospheric music and feel is truly amazing. Melancholic music and birds with the talking of villagers. The general idea and the way you ran with the theme of "sacrifices must be made" is so clever. And the morality in the mechanics makes you sad as you have to pick the friends to sacrifice. Its amazing how games can make you sad, scared, accomplished, and much more. My first playthrough of this game, I sacrificed a lot of characters, and then at the end when I saw that you can make them escape into the stratosphere, I had to play it again to find out how you do this. And of course the artwork is wonderful. Its amazing what some people can make in a couple of days.

wow......I just played it again and saved everyone. Amazing multiple endings.

I'm so happy you noticed that! You're the first person to bring it up. Thanks for playing!!

Really neat Ludum entry! Keep up the good work <3

this game is so cute and sad...

(+2)

this is incredibly creative!!!! it really shows how video games can stimulate an imagination and how core gameplay and concept ultimately rule!

Hey this is so special

Love the music! Really adds to the experience. I also liked the main mechanic of grabbing the town people to shoot at the evil eye clouds. I left no villager alive. :D

(+2)

that's awesome. i thought about how each persons experience contributed to the military action. this is never considered in  real time theater's of operation. Maybe if it was by both sides, wed have less of it. an unexpected yet welcome thought process while playing.
