Help Internet Explorer take back the Web!

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.

You should totally go PLAY THE GAME NOW! And check out the other LD games too.

In less interesting news, I just got interviewed by this guy who's interviewing like a hundred people. Yep.

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.

-high score boards, both Mochi and Newgrounds
-6 sweet medals
-awesome full screen mode, thanks to Flash's cool new "full screen interactive"

Just made a game in zero hours!

EDIT/UPDATE: It's on Newgrounds now, CHECK IT OUT

FALLUMNS

Thanks to the magic of Daylight Savings Time and the 0hgame jam, I just made a game in NO TIME at all! You can play it right here on the dump.

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.

1 Million.

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.

Game Jam: Rob's Cabin Quest!

ROB'S CABIN QUEST

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.

Big thanks to Team Pogostick for making this happen: Spudzy, Adam Bielgard, and xSakux. Add these guys to your Favorites, they're awesome!

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.

So check out Rob's Cabin Quest and all the great Game Jam 8 games!
