I felt like it'd be a good idea to create a sort of checklist document for beginning/novice Klik & Play users so that they can learn the basics (and advanced techniques) of creating games in Klik & Play, and to discover and exploit all of its capabilities.
So far it's a list of idea items for games/game concepts/techniques to learn and master, as well as a list of events / conditions / actions / other Event Editor stuff to become familiar with. I'd like to see what other folks can come up with (especially people like snapman, qrleon, any other Klik gurus here).
Edit: It uses Unix linebreaks, so don't open it in Notepad. Sorry. Windows users should use a different text editor.
Edit 2: Revision 2 is up.
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 4:00 am 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.
Sign up below to get a reminder email the day before the jam!
I have always liked 2-Player 1 Keyboard style games, so I thought I'd make something kind of cooperative that I could play with a friend or something.
I haven't really ever designed any levels for a game that I've made before, so it's fun doing trial and error sort of situations of what is fun and what is too difficult. I am also wondering how important is difficulty in games in terms of accessibility. I always love a challenge, but for the case of a lot of my friends, they wouldn't be able to stand to play something like this for very long. I guess it's an audience thing.
The concept of this game is that the two players have to keep this ball in volley while hitting targets with the ball without having the ball leave the screen. I thought it would be a fun game to try to coordinate with another player in order to strategically bounce the ball.
It was a normal day until you were kidnapped by some mysterious scientists who were intent on testing metamorphosis-inducing substances on you. After you drank one of these unknown liquids while trying to escape your captors, you found yourself transformed into a large skunk and started to have some weird ideas...
Toilet humor warning: game may be unsuitable (or suitable) for all audiences.
Mephimorphosis is a weird arcade-y action game where your goal is to defeat all the enemies on 5 varied levels. For your newly discovered skunk form, the people can't pose much threat, but they run away quickly and the time runs out!
Eat stuff until you explode, sometimes your digestive system works and you poop and wont explode. Beat your digestive system.
Press right to run, shift to jump. Try to beat the Rabbi to the little kid.
I wanted to make a game starring Klik & Play itself. I asked on the IRC how to represent KnP in a game, and got back a reply of "a phallus". Thus Klik the Dick was born, a phallic mascot wrapped in the opening screen of KnP, and what better game for a mascot than a (2.5D) platformer?
Eat all the stuff before the other mouth eat. Arrow keys to move.
