All I know is that something went wrong. We got greedy, and it became our downfall. We managed to construct a wonder before it was too late. Little did we know it was the beginning of the end.
Our tribe flourished. Our numbers exceeded millions. Enemy tribes would attack us, slaughter hundreds of thousands, but we knew our fallen ranks would be replenished by next year. Then, we saw it. We could construct a second wonder. The Gods themselves insisted, for the price was minus 1.9 billion. As we started the construction, we saw the materials descend from heaven. Our culture boomed. Our foodstocks were overflowing. All enemy resistance was reduced to 0 as our numbers reached two billion.
Then it happened. We reached critical mass.
When we crossed the threshold of 2.1 billion tribesmen, the world inverted as day became night, plenty became scarcity and the living became undead.
I ran the census myself. Negative 2.1 billion inhabitants. This shouldn't be right. It couldn't!
But there it was: the threat rating clearly read NaN. Our enemy had fled, permantly. Afraid of what we had become.
I am the last one. By the end of the year, our glorious civilization will be turn to ashes, and we will have lost. Be sure to not repeat our mistakes. When greed lurks, look away. Stay true to the path.

TL;DR lol, integer overflow lost me the game.
For the developer (and people who dig highscores): there is something strange going on with the total score system. Instead of it being a sum of all your 'best' scores per level, it's only a sum of your most RECENT score on a level. If you have a total score of 992, but flub it and only score 900 or something (due to randomness of hail, slowness of infection), your total score will decrease by 92.
Not sure if that was intended or not, but it's kinda odd.
Tip for the people struggling with survival: You can make a sort of "death area" in the middle. I placed one sticky block at the bottom of both the leftmost and rightmost column. Above that, only cannon blocks facing inward. In the middle, just place eye blocks and sticky blocks whenever you need. Pause whenever a block turns into cheese, and replace it asap. Otherwise, just collect all those souls so your sword attacks do the damage. Target the bosses with your sword, and the rest is easy.
