A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

You find yourself in a dimly lit log cabin in the middle of the woods. You are starving to death. The stranger who resides there tells you that he will feed you if you defeat him in a game of cards.

Sacrifices Must Be Made is a game created for Ludum Dare 43. I produced the game code, art, and audio in 48 hours. Here's the Ludum Dare entry page!

The game should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. There is an ending so hang in there!

I love this game, and id love it even more if you made an endless mode where you can edit your deck and stuff like that

Awesome game, i really love the card aspect and how it relates to the overall story, great job!

i think i found a bug with the rabbits card that gives almost infinite bunnies! 


Loved it. Aside from the amazingly creepy atmosphere and story, the card game itself is really cool! Was wondering if the sacrificing mechanic was inspired by a different game or did you invent it yourself? Would love to play around with that more.

i've got big pleasure to play this game, really card good game and horror [FR]

I loved this so much

Wow, that was one hell of an ending. Great work.

Really nice game!

Congratulations to the developers, I had a lot of fun in this game, I'm Brazilian.


I had so much fun playing your game! I hope that you did well during the game jam : -) Keep up the great work. 

What do i need to install and be able to play the game

You need a program to unzip the file. I use 7-zip. Save it where you want, and open the folder. Find the run file inside the folder, and there you go. 

Thank you I got it working now I love it

Awesome :-)

But it's an amazing game and full of creative.


Would you like to increase some difficulty?I thought it's  too easy.


AMAZING game man.

There's a bug if you *click* the warren card, then retreat to your hand with *S* you will still draw the Rabbit cards.
