A game about combining menial tasks with extreme sports. UPDATE: High Scores now work. Yes this is cheating no i dont care
My game is inspired by Terry Cavanagh, Anna Anthropy and The Path.
I went a bit ambitious, so had to rush it a lot. It might run too fast or too slow or not at all for you. Sorry about that! The game is made in Visual Basic 6 and includes the code.
For a 12 year old in 94' with no programming experience, Klik & Play blew my mind. As you all probably know, it was a game creation tool that made it extremely easy to create simple games without writing a single line of code. There was a huge community on America Online, Keyword:MAXIS?, where people could upload and share their games. My friend and I made a game called "The Quest For The Wonton Soup" which uh.. featured an asian man collecting coins to buy.. wonton soup. Yeah. At the time (remember, we were 12) we thought it was funny but clearly it was a prettty (edit: extremely) stereotypical take on an asian man. Whoops. This game existed on the Maxis forum on AOL for download and a number of probably illegal compilation cds filled with peoples klik & play games that some random companies sold. Anyway, neither of us have a copy of the game as it was probably thrown out with our 386's 15 years ago. Does anyone, for some absurd reason, have a copy of the game? As dumb and offensive as it was, i'd still love to see it again.
We made a demo for a sequel a year later using The Games Factory. Someone actually made a 'Let's Play' video of it :
This is possibly the longest title ever.
This I made back when I still used the demo and barley had any idea how things worked.
There's a normal game and 1 bonus stage with a hidden BOSS STAGE.
Oh and I stole the Wonga picture from someone here's game which I forgot the name of.
The time is right... for making videogames! The Timezone Lottery Klik Jam happens on the first Saturday of every month, at a time chosen randomly by our top-of-the-line numerical hour-choosing machines. This month, it takes place at 5:00 pm UTC. Whenever that time rolls around for you, you have two hours to make a game!
How can I possibly make a game in that short a timespan, you gasp? There are many game-making tools available, but the most ludicrous and welcoming of all is Klik & Play. If you want to give K&P a shot, we have a Learning KNP FAQ available, as well as some advice on making it work on modern machines.
Making games is its own reward, but it can be much, much more rewarding when you're doing it with friends. To get the most out of this worldwide internet game jam, come talk with everyone on IRC. It's a great way to share this awesome experience, and get quick help when things aren't going right. Our server is irc.freenode.net, and our channel is #glorioustrainwrecks.
After you've made your game, upload it here!
For more information, check out the N00B FAQ.

Hello. I'm an Internet Magician and my sole claim to fame is halfassing everything I do.
B.O.L.D. - The "Totally Awesome Not At All A Shameless Parody Of Bob And George" Webcomic.
Other equally hideous comics.
Various Game Maker "games".
So, hey, I was just running through the tutorial of Multimedia Fusion, which thus far pretty much seems to be Klik & Play with hopefully fewer bugs, a million more kinds of objects, the step-through editor removed, and the ability to add plug-ins, and I discovered something amazing -- in the event editor, you can simply drag actions to other conditions to copy-paste them. I thought, wow, I wish Klik & Play did that; that'd make things a lot less tedious. And then, I thought, wait, I'll bet Klik & Play does do that and I've been wasting all kinds of time recreating actions from scratch. Sure enough, Klik & Play has supported copy-paste in the event editor all along and I simply didn't know it.
What hidden Klik & Play features do YOU exploit for your own personal gain?
These birds have an itch they can't scratch.
That's because they have no hands!
Scratch it for them, through lots of trial and error.
Retry forever to get the perfect high score!
Ectocomp 2012 is going on! It's an interactive fiction competition where people have three hours to make a horror themed game! My game is called THE HUNTING LODGE and is a Twine game inspired by Hunt the Wumpus.
You can read more about the competition and download the games and voting form here:
Attached to this post is an updated version of my game that isn't buggy as all hell. It's far better than the competition entry but !!!AND THIS IS IMPORTANT!!! if you DO vote, vote on the quality of the competition version of my game, NOT the polished one here. Because that would be cheating, and I don't cheat!
Let me know what you think of the game! I'm pretty happy with it. I'm hoping I squashed all the major bugs out of the latest version.
