New game: Internet Avenger
So for this Ludum Dare thing, maybe you've heard of it, you have to make a game in 48 or 72 hours (I chose 72) and the theme was YOU ARE THE VILLAIN. So what better villain to pick than Internet Explorer, champion of anti-competitive business back in the '90s.
In this game you basically travel back in time to destroy all other browsers (or six of them anyway). The platforming part is a little repetitive, but I'm pretty happy with how the boss battles turned out. The awesome music is from this guy who was giving out free music on reddit over the weekend.
In less interesting news, I just got interviewed by this guy who's interviewing like a hundred people. Yep.
Ludum Dare continues, here's supervillain Internet Explorer going head-to-head with Safari in the jungle.
The theme for Ludum Dare is "You Are The Villain," if you haven't heard.
In my game, you play the role of supervillain Internet Explorer as you travel back in time to destroy the competition and take back the web.
Here's a shot of the first boss battle, versus Mosaic. All graphics done in MSPaint, by the way.
Just posting the template code I plan to use for this weekend's ludum dare. Most likely it won't be of use to anyone but I'm legally required to make it available. just to keep everything fair. download link here
but seriously DO LUDUM DARE it is awesome. Even if you make a shitty game just make ANYTHING.
obligatory windows 7 sample image:
New features include:
-smoother difficulty curve
-less annoying movement
-choose your own music - anything from the A.P.
-high score boards, both Mochi and Newgrounds
-6 sweet medals
-awesome full screen mode, thanks to Flash's cool new "full screen interactive"
So go check it out!
EDIT/UPDATE: It's on Newgrounds now, CHECK IT OUT
Sure, it's missing some basic features like a preloader, sound, a high score board, and a smooth difficulty curve, but YOU try making a game in zero hours, it is not easy.
Thoughts on the game? I might polish it up and put it on the Portal sometime.
edit: I put in on Kongregate as-is because who cares about Kongregate. The Newgrounds release will be better.
edit #2: it's supposed to be a ONE player game. Two players kind of kills the experience, I think.
Turn out the lights, turn up the volume, and go full screen to experience this NEW game.
Seriously, you should check it out. We worked pretty hard over the last few weeks to get it done in time for Halloween.
Super SOPA Bros, one of the shittiest and yet somehow most popular games I've ever made, just went over 1 million total views. Do the hundred dollars or so in ad revenue I've earned by profiting off this good cause make me a terrible person? Probably.
In slightly less mundane news, I've been working on a spooky Halloween game that should hopefully hit NG in about a week. And it's gonna have MEDALS so get ready to pee yourself with excitement.
48 hours ago, this game existed only in the minds of four ambitious game developers. Now it's REAL!
Take control of Rob, an adventurous boy dressed as a ninja on Halloween, as he attempts to rescue his family from various spooky monsters. It's like a cross between Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Binding of Isaac.
If I could say one thing about this Game Jam, it's that 48 hours is really short. The 72 hour jams were pretty tight but this one was a last-minute crunch.
