"Imagine if Animal Crossing had a long lost mutant sibling that coalesced out of a creative flurry in a mere four months"

Bunni is a super adorable harvest moon/animal crossing flash game thing by Andre Spierings and Daniel Cook (the folks behind fishing girl). (via JiG)

Caveat: saving requires registration and is reportedly buggy.

Also: Dan Cook's flash game dev blog, he talks about Bunni a bit (and shows 1 screenshot and some random pics) here.

Hell, you had me at Fishing Girl!

...aaaaaand locks on the loading screen. Dammit.

Yeah, ill-timed posting. Just noticed this on the JiG comments from one of the devs:
...all the initial interest managed to melt the servers. :-) Your love for Bunni is overwhelming...many apologies for the inconvenience. The 'limited release' wasn't quite so limited!

We are working on a fix. I'll let you know when servers are bubblegumed back together.

It loaded for me. Cute, somewhat annoying control scheme, but fun.

Can't. Stop. Playing. Dammit.

Also, Harvest Moon is amazing.

My wife walked in while I was playing this and started laughing at me. Then I had to explain that it was a game where I had bunnies and foxes chopping down trees for me.

Good bye sleep, it was nice knowing you.

My gems keep disappearing. This is frustrating.

Forcing wild animals to cut down trees and build houses to "heal the island"? Who made this game, Karl Rove?

Oh THAT'S it, my gems keep automatically resetting. Shame that such a crippling bug would prevent me from playing the game any more because goddamn I love this kind of stuff.

Have they tried to make you a party to deer genocide yet?

1000 gem challenge: totally worth it
posted by tylermoody at 5:37 PM on July 16, 2009


This is really cute and sweet but the gem reset bug is frustrating as hell. Especially when the pirate bunny says she'll "dance" for you if you give her 1000 gems.

I ended up buying a Legendary Plum Tree every time I had 100 gems, then bombing them once I had 20 plum trees and selling them to the pirate...

I imagine that this plays well in the south. The ruler puts the "bunnies" into the fields to generate wealth to buy land from ghosts and jewels and stores for his girly-girl while dynamiting deer.

Dudes. Am I doing something wrong? I am just watching them cut down shit, and it's getting boring.

Man, I just lost several hours to that. Almost got the church, but I have work tomorrow, and my bed looks damn good right now.

I sent this to my girlfriend and then left the house for several hours. She spent all of those several hours playing. That is all.

I fail at the fishing thing. I keep hitting those red bobbing things that tell me I've found something new, but all I can do is cancel. Then some fish thing steals my stuff.

Did the wedding dress immediately disappear for anyone else? It appeared in the silver store for about 5 seconds, and then it was gone.

I imagine that this plays well in the south.

It does, but not as well as "Plantation 2: The Enslavening". I've beaten the moonshine-making mini-game and I'm at the bonus level where I get to fuck my sister. When I beat the game, I'm gonna play "Cheap Stereotypes Alpha Lite: The Drive-By Generalizer".

Now seemingly less buggy over at Kongregate for all you achievement thingy people.

Does this game end? I've picked up all the hearts and finished all the quests I saw on the wiki - but it just keeps on going....
posted by Lizc at 1:43 PM on July 22, 2009


That's basically it if you have all the hearts. I think the wedding ceremony is supposed to be the ending cutscene, but it just lets you go back and tool around because you could have done things in a different order such that you get married and still have other stuff left undone.
