SM Word

Saturday, September 1st, 2007

A week ago I wrote that I’d take a small from break from monthly games. Well, I lied. Here’s the my newest game (let’s call it an off-season game).

The game was done for TIGSource’s B-game Competition.

The game requires a microphone to play it.

Download
SM_Word.zip (1,0 Mb) (Release 1)

Instructions
You have to type in the phrase “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” over and over and over again. Every time you finish the sentence you get points.

When an error message pops up you have to close it by shouting (preferably cursing) and banging your keyboard with your fists.

Eventually the error messages will spawn so numerously that the program crashes and you’ll be scored on your performance.

Alt + enter - Will toggle fullscreen.
Esc - Will quit the game.
Alt + F4 - Will quit the game.
