The Klik of the Month Klub meets right here on this very website on the third Saturday of every month at 4pm Pacific Time (taking daylight savings into consideration) for a two hour Klik & Play Showdown. Everyone who participates gets two hours to create something from scratch in Klik & Play. Abusing the stock objects is encouraged. If you really loathe Klik & Play you can use whatever game development platform you want. Two hours is a pretty tight time limit, though, so choose wisely!

Klik & Play is absolutely free to download, and learning it takes minutes, so everyone can get in on the action. Want to talk to your fellow Klikwreckers? Join us on IRC -- server irc.freenode.net, channel #glorioustrainwrecks. Join the mayhem!

For more information, check out the KotM N00B FAQ.

Sign up below to get reminded by email the day before the klikkening begins!

predictions/plans

Depending on how much free time I have this week, my game will feature artwork ripped from a lesser-known MECC edutainment title. And a moderately inappropriate literary mashup! I just wish that thread I found over at xentax had been more successful at extracting the compressed file formats of the the game's art assets. As it stands, I have to rip the sprites the old-fashioned way with screencaps and a paint program. Luckily, the game does feature a frame-by-frame option (which should be a pretty strong hint as to which MECC title I'm messing around with!)

it's a holiday-ish retelling of Activision's old Atari 2600 "Kaboom!" - SANTABOOM

Thanks! It's funny how well

Thanks! It's funny how well some of the old ideas work, and sometimes a remake is more satisfying than a new idea... I think Kaboom! is more compelling than the array of breakout clones that seem to predominate. (besides being easier to code)

GLITTERIUS

"...Like a screensaver, only you can control it..."

"i like that the most beautiful sparkles are those left by your deaths - your mistakes rewarded with a simple beauty piercing the darkness."

"As I hammered my keyboard, desperately searching for the laser button, I suddenly realised that there was no such button. The designer had robbed me of my only means of defense. I felt so small and vulnerable all of a sudden. And I began thinking: what does it say of me as a person, as a game reviewer, that I expected a means of offense at all? My mind was metaphorically exploding with strange feelings and questions about games that I've never felt before. I was all set to give it three stars, but then my ship non-metaphorically exploded for real because I couldn't shoot the dang UFOs. Lame."

Glitterius is here! Those pesky Von Neumann Saucers have started multiplying again - and this time they've decided you're their next target! Dodge their shots - or don't! I don't care.

Airport

Penguins can't land at airports!!! That's ridiculous!!! Those are flippers, you can't even fly!!! Get out of my airport!!!

Essential but might not be obvious: the diner is clickable, and the game isn't tuned so that the number of available planes can possibly matter (would have been nice, but oh well).

a little late...

http://games4noah.sitesled.com/RUN.exe

In the year 2007, Vidal Sassoon's new line of hairsprays polluted the Earth with a toxin - lethal to mankind. The human species was forced to evacuate the world in search of a new planet to populate.

Two years later...

One August evening, at approximately 11:37PM, Cliff Hanger was travelling at the speed of light when he missed his turn at the Big Dipper. Lucky for Cliff, he hit the eject button just in time as he watched his space shuttle pummel the Earth below.

As Cliff parachuted nearer the earth, his breathing became more and more labored. He knew that in order to survive, he would only have a few minutes to gather and reassemble what remained of his spacecraft and launch back into space.

You have 3 minutes to get off this planet... I'd suggest you RUN!

controls:
left / right cursor - run/move/swim
ctrl - jump / swim

...

There is a special second ending for the zealous collector.

It has nothing to do with Christmas... and I apologize for the filesize (13.36MB). The game itself is under a MB, but the music weighs it down quite a lot.

Definitely worth the wait, woop

Really enjoyed this. It's difficult to put my finger on it, but there's something about the combination of the protagonist, the chunky pixels, the soundtrack, the animals, the exploration and the time limit - the atmosphere of the game is really warm and fun and engaging (and therefore, dare I say it, Christmassy)?

The fish food had me stumped for a while, but I've just managed to get the Special Ending (with ten seconds to go, woo) and I feel great.

Fab!

I'm glad you enjoyed it...

I'm glad you enjoyed it... you may be the first person to finish the game other than myself. I had an unfair advantage because I knew where everything was from the start.

In hindsight, I wish I had done something different with the fish food. It's kind of in an awkward location.

I started making a new game with a helicopter. Maybe I'll turn it into some sort of prequel - back in 2007 when Earth has to be evacuated. The player could control the helicopter and save people from the city. Hmm. I dunno. xD

That thought is pretty cool!

That thought is pretty cool! I disagree with you though - I think the fish food is in a good location. I had to think about which 'screen' it was on and then work out logically in my head where to go to find it. It was probably the hardest item to get in the whole game, and therefore the most satisfying to find. Also, you made it so that it's not an item vital to completing the game, so you haven't built in any unneccessary frustration.

Another game would certainly be ace - although if Cliff ends up saving people then where does he take them to live if they're not with him when he crashes? :D

Something I meant to ask very briefly before - did you make the music for RUN yourself, and if so, what did you use to create it? Although I didn't mention it in my last post, I think that the squelchy electro background you used was v. rad.

music

I made the music with KORG DS-10 on my Nintendo DS.
http://www.korgds10synthesizer.com/

I have used the same music in a few other projects (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ibfp1VfkdY). Perhaps it's time to make some more so I don't have to keep recycling the same darn thing! xD
