Ludum Dare 39: Rats will kiss the gunner’s daughter

“Rats will kiss the gunner’s daughter” by Ferran Benavente, David Hernàndez, Marc Garrigo, Mr. Houdini & Sylvia Benito.

“This game lasts [five] days. On the [sixth] day you will have to execute the mutineer. Every day you will ask each sailor on your ship a different question. [You will] have three options: […] [1.] Ask peacefully. […] [2.] Use violence to get the information. This action will cost you a coin[.] […] [3.] Bribe the sailor to get the information. This action will cost you a coin. Each day [you] have two coins to spend.”


With its unique art style, “Rats will kiss the gunner’s daughter” is not just an audiovisual pleasure, but also a neat logic puzzle game with resource management elements. By asking your once so loyal sailors each day a new question, you have to find out who on board might be a mutineer and who supports him. Can you draw the conclusions from their statements to prove yourself to be the Sherlock Holmes of the Seven Seas or will you be stabbed by some knives in the back? You will find out sooner or later. >>PLAY
