  1. Tactics for defeating the Aporkalypse

    After playing, its very obvious I'll need a lot of prep to survive even a little bit. I'm lost in this game, I had the original DS down to a point where it was boring to keep going. I really don't think that will happen with this game, even with a really good strat I'm pretty sure its not sustainable to survive the Aporkalyse for any long length of time. All good points. Esp the pig guards, if they keep their weapon out, that would be real helpful, but pigs seem to really dislike darkness so I wouldn't be surprised if they use torches.
  2. I'm looking for reasonable advice on how to survive the Aporkalypse, To be clear, I'm looking for advice on how to survive. I know how the calendar works, but I'm more interested in trying to LIVE after the world ends and descends into darkness/piglessness, even if its not sustainable forever (I ultimately want to challenge myself by trying to survive to a certain date and then beating that the next time I play with a different strategy) I have 60 days to prepare, and I just don't know what to prioritize to survive those endless bat attacks. I know I can just run from the Herald, but the constant bats are an issue as its not like I can use tooth traps or have enough bee's to make bee mines. So far the closest I could think of is maybe a tier 3 carnivorous plant forest, where I leave all sorts of meat out in a field and lure them out there to evolve into a kind of natural defense against bats if I run in and out of it. Any tips, advice, or anything would be appreciated. If you've done this yourself and find that its simply "impossible" to survive without resetting the clock, please let me know as well. I would prefer advice that is about fortifications, attacking, and defense. I'm aware I could just get the overcharged robot dude, a walking cane, and run like the wind, but I'd prefer something more brutal. HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! These are the things that have been suggested so far to me: - The new character Warbucks gets sanity from the amount of Oinks he gets. This could be used to counter issues with sanity in never ending darkness. - Flytraps (or whatever they are called) make good stationary defenses once they level up. - Webber has a lot of disadvantages, but since he can eat Monster Meat without any negative effects, he could be useful for getting food once all there is left is Monster Meat (not to mention a nice spider haven might help survive some bats, but maybe not) - Multiple bases and defensive areas. If the Herald wrecks something, you can just move to another area you have set up. One base would be a poor choice.
  3. Could the pigs become vampires?

    Or... they ate the piggies and you're finding bits of skin left over that was stuck in their teeth. HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!
  4. References in Hamlet

    Anyone know the movie Ender's Game? Well the sequel takes place on an alien world with Ender all grown up. The world is inhabited by pig people that resemble this game A LOT. Not a reference per say.. I keep looking for one of the pigs to scream "FATHER" when cutting down a tree (turns out the pigs and trees are linked, they turn into trees when they die and live on a 2nd lifecycle)

    That's not how the internet works
  6. Well THAT Seems Safe...

    This reminds me of that Simpson's episode "Bart the Mother". The town gets overrun with Bolivian tree lizards: Skinner: Well, I was wrong; the lizards are a godsend. Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards? Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards. Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse? Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat. Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas! Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death

    I told that joke to a friends wife when she answered the phone and said she was sick.. she actually started to pour herself a cup of sugar water before my friend noticed who she was talking to, took the phone away, and yelled at me for taking advantage of his wifes trusting nature

    My doctor says to drink 3 cups of warm sugar water.. cures all illnesses. You'll know its working if you experience the following symptoms: 1) Blurred vision 2) Constant thirst and hunger
  9. There has actually almost ZERO realism in this game. Nothing you actually do to survive could actually be used in a survival situation, and the economics of "Pigs give me money" is even less realistic. I imagine this game will be shut down one day after its discovered a hardcore player died from eating red berries while lost in the woods.. or eating uncooked bird meat because they thought there'd only be a sanity loss. I actually gave this game to a 7 year old and he flat out asked me if grass + twigs = fire in real life... and I was like "Its a little more complicated than that"

    You mean BadlyBurned.. its ok. I forgive you <3

    I thought Gamma Rays were green?
  13. What would you add to the Aporkalipse?

    I would add a Iron Hulk Suit of Armor.. would be powered on red light available only during the Aporkalypse. Gives crazy protections and damage but doesn't last forever.. would give players a chance to have some fun for a bit with all the madness before having to turn the clock back. I would even look forward to the Aporkalyse if I had something like this.

    SAME!!! I was -----------> <-------------- this close to hitting Esc and exiting as I thought he killed me.. Turns out he was just rolling and trolling @_@
  15. This made me laugh.. He is right, there are multiple ways of thinking of it. Apocalypse with a piggie reference, or "A Pork Eclipse" since it is technically an eclipse that overshadows the piggies village. Play on words works on 2 levels. Would of never noticed if you didn't say anything, you only notice if you say it out loud. A PORK ECLIPSE lol
