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.

A Tribute to the Rolling Boulder

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

This is my 12th done-in-under-a-week game. It’s also my Assembly gamedev competition entry. Which means it was published on the Assembly website a bit earlier than it is published here. And thus it “leaked” to the internet and was blogged already by the2bears, indygamer and soldat movies.

The game is open to harsh critique and wish me good luck at the Assembly gamedev combo.

The Amazing Flying Brothers

Sunday, July 1st, 2007

It’s hard for me to believe that this is already my eleventh experimental done-in-under-a-week game. This is a new take on the one button design challenge (previous one from me being Moo at the Moon).

And as usual the game is open to harsh critique.

Crayon Physics

Friday, June 1st, 2007
This isn’t the game in that YouTube video!

The YouTube game is called Crayon Physics Deluxe and this is just a quick and ugly prototype of that game. You can’t draw anything else than squares in this game. 

Sorry for the hostility, but subtle tactics didn’t seem to work.

Here’s my tenth done-in-under-a-week game. I would have liked to spend few more days with the game, but unfortunately I didn’t have the time. As usual the game is open to critique.

Instructions
You play with crayons and physics. The goal of the game is to move the red ball so that it collects the stars. You can cause the red ball to move by drawing physical objects.

With left mouse button you can draw and with right you can remove objects.

Space – Will reset the level.
Esc – Will open the menu.

Alt + enter – Will toggle fullscreen.
Alt + F4 – Will quit the game.
