this game is so much fun i keep coming back to play it again and again! adore the soft, crayon-like art style and i'm always a sucker for cute animals. (especially bears! even if poda is a little impatient LOL)
230 yrs :D
This game is so cute!!! 10/10 stars!!! My record is 260 years!!!
Love this game!
An amazing little game, with lots of personality and bunnies!
I had a good time with this! I love the art style, everything looks colorful and cute. The music and sounds are nice as well! Having the Panda god constantly interrupting you is a fun way to keep the player on their toes and active in the statue building process. Great work on this!
As usual a very charming, complete and fun game. I'm very impressed by your ability to find a really simple but fun game idea, that you just want to keep playing again and again.
The only little improvement I could think of would be set a hand as a custom cursor.
Well earned results for LD51 !
i got 100
accomplishment of the year. with a mouse, btw
Frontloading with stones is what you should do, because they are further away from the storage - prioritize roads.
my record is 139 years
some little life lessons ~ it's not a weakness or cheat to pick up a bunny up and help them
and ~ you don't need to pick everything up. you only need to worry about as much material as a bunny can carry.
only worry about the imminent bunny, coming down the stairs
~ the math is difficult to argue with: fixing your system first is always better than rage-scrambling after individuals
there's more about the reality of generating wealth/savings and being unable to do so; how unequal distribution of resources means privilege does effect equity; the vital importance of infrastructure; adapting to the situation at-hand instead of constantly returning to a fixed paradigm; and the irate panda gods are background features and not part of the game you can control,
but those ones make for a more tranquil, almost zen gaming experience
Can we overthrow him?
also... could you please make the area around the woodcutter cottage larger? i realize it's partly because of the path margin, but a lot of bunnies are not sticking because of the trigonometry. a mouse swipe has that much farther to move diagonally than across. so while the sticky area might equal the same, the distance is actually farther from the temple avenue than one pass of the mouse. tl;dr there's bunnies standing on top of the woodpile doing nothing
(yes you do use trig when you grow up. stay learning, kids)
Bunnies suffer under the ravages of capitalism.
Hey :) I really liked this game, especially how the bunnies and the little world looks.
Me and my friend spent some days trying to recreate this game just to learn from it. I couldn't find a private way to contact you but I thought it would be fun to just share it with you (it's behind a secret link on itch.io): https://lexenson.itch.io/bunny-builder?secret=wjn3RfZpMPBq1FGCJ5hz7qrcZU
Oooh that's so cute! You did a very good job sticking to the core of the game. The art and music are lovely!
I build that amazing looking statue in 31 years.
If you have any question on the game, feel free to contact me on Twitter I'll try to answer them 💌
118. 114. 110. I do wish, wish wish there's more a sticky effect of resources landing on top of the platform? With multiple bunnies stalled, they'll literally be right on top of it, and it turns into an interface problem. Likewise, that resources won't end up on the stairs or on the gravity-defying side of the temple, where picking them up turns into disrupting traffic. Like I said, that turns it into an interface jam (the bad kind) and not even any kind of pixel-hunting skill.
Really reminds me of the olden days when more defense tower games roamed in flash. Timing is everything!
Thanks for the comment and ideas! And what a great score, good job.
You are right, there are a lot of small details that could be done better regarding resources, where they fall and how to pick them up. I'll try to fix some of those issues in a future version.
i hate this panda
220 years. very nice game.
174 years, damn, that was a fun game, very well done !
Thank you for this funny game!

That's so cool, thanks for recording your playthrough! Super interesting to see the choices you make!
Quite Literally can't stop playing! My best so far!
wow, there are people who are way better at this than me...
170 days gg
Sub 200 is already really good, gj!
(Also my parents did something like 450 and 350 so there are also people way worse haha 🐰)
super cute! A lot of fun, and neat to try to play as best as possible!
A fun and very cute little game, I really like the art style.
The trick seems to be to just assign the rabbit at 2/2/0 (wood/stone/build) then focus on maxing roads first then, wood and stone at once and after you did all that, store enough material to finish the statue (50 of each) and assign all to make the statue.
Nice speedrun strats! You found all the little details ✨
My personal best is 100, and my brother's is 93 (with a mouse)!
This was really cute! Bunny!
Congratulations my friend, this is fun, cute, charming, complete all around. Perfect work!

Spended 177 years to please giant Panda on the cloud, 10/10

Nice score! Some player did that in playtests and it got reaaally chaotic, so we decided to put a cap on the numbers of bunnies, but you can still have way more than necessary!
(Also look at how awful the prototype looked haha)
