yeah that screenshot has nothing to do with anything
My first trainwreck!
Jump dodge and throw stars to destroy fruit.
Don't hit the slide kicking karate man and watch out for raining ninja knife things.
Don't let the fruit hit you either.
WASD and spacebar
Make your own sound effects! (new feature)
Experience a virtual reality trip through the Grand Canyon, as though you were really a flying triceratops! Up and down arrows move.
EDIT: Fixed sound.
I'm mostly uploading this to try and suss out the horrible crashy site bug that happens when you upload a game, but here! Have a game from my distant past!
Made in 1998 at the age of 16, Whirlybird is a remake of a Commodore 64 game by the same name. (It's not a popular or particularly good C64 game, by any stretch; it was on a shovelware disk that a friend of mine had.) Shoot down helicopters before they fly off the screen! Hit the mouse button to detonate a nuclear bomb which destroys everything on screen! And that's about it!
Run it in DOSBox, I couldn't be bothered to port it to Windows.
Alright fingers crossed that I get the error message
I stumbled around my midi folder looking for inspiration and pooped this one out faster than a speeding bullet.
Play the games before the triad rises.
Thus far, there has been one small downside to my choice of Stackless Python as a development language -- the standard Python debuggers don't friggin' work. Thus did I spend my entire weekend trying to figure out why my collision detection was stopping objects stone dead, rather than only in the direction that they collided in. (Imagine Mario jumping into a wall and hovering there.) Finally fixed it last night. BLIMEY.
Isaac was scared that I'd already have a game up and so he'd never see my embarrassing home video footage. I'll tell all of you what I told him: Currently my game is a green box on a blue grid called the "Intertrongs" and it can run into a JPG of a castle. I need to write a level editor soon, because specifying coordinates for things manually is going to be painful as hell. The lesson: Don't use a general-purpose programming language, and you will beat me. I'm a masochist who insists on seeing to fruition some manifestation of a general-purpose videogame engine that I first began imagining some six years ago.
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!
Want to talk to your fellow Klikwreckers? Join us on IRC -- server irc.freenode.net, channel #glorioustrainwrecks. We've also got a Mumble voice chat server -- just connect to glorioustrainwrecks.com using Mumble and you can talk to us like real human beings! Join the mayhem!
After you've made your game, you should upload it here!
For more information, check out the KotM N00B FAQ.
Sign up using the "Sign Up" tab above if you want to get reminded by email the day before the klikkening begins!
Anyone from elsewhere portaling into here, welcome to here... Click the logo on the top of the page, enjoy your stay whether quickly passing by or stopping in as I did, consult with me on irc #glorioustrainwrecks on freenode and cheers to you! Moving on:
Prehistoric Dungeon Family is a game where if you choose to be part of the family they take care of you as one of their own. I know this sounds like some organized crime game but it's really not, it's just about family ties and importance and friendship and all that sort of stuff, so relax, enjoy, and absorb the chemicals that are in family.
I also converted it to TGF2 so there's a flash version too http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/603702
You might want to see the old text file which isn't included in the flash version sooo:
You are assigned to a prehistoric dungeon family
YOU MUST BE PART OF THE FAMILY... THEN MOVE ONTO THE TORNADO TO BECOME A PART OF IT.. BECAUSE LIKE TORNADO DOES NOT DO THAT ALONE.. YOU HAVE TO DRAG TO IT
CLICK ON THINGS TO DROP THINGS, AVOID THINGS AND DONT DIE D00D.. THOSE BOATS CAN BE MEENIE
COLLECT THE HAND AND USE THE CHAIR TO PLANT WONDERFUL DANCING AGENTS TO THE SCREEN. THE BOATS ARE LESS MEANIE THIS TIME
FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.. CLIC ON THE ELF GOOD SIR AND/OR MA'AM
THIS IS THE END, YOU MAY RIGHT CLICK TO RESTART OR LEFT CLICK TO PRESENT THE ITEMS SOME HAPPYSADFACES.
I totally intend to do a belated GT 2nd birthday game because I didn't have any ideas for games to post on the day. It will be a platformer because hey, platformers are the genre that you can ruin the quickest in TGF.
Watch this space.
Ode to Zone Runner. With ooouuuttttliiiinneees. And bad animation.
Unfinished, as I had to leave early. Might finish it up eventually. Or something. If it's worth finishing, anyway.
UPDATE: You can play the finished version here: http://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/node/1152
