Okay, I couldn't get the embed to work, so I put a link here to give a good idea of what to expect using a collage of sorts: http://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/files/icebox2k15.html Embedding tutorial I need I guess, but ah well.

So yeah, welcome (back?) to the icebox. Someone mentioned it and I initially had this event up and running in 2012 during november time, before all the bustle and hustle of life took over. I probably had a couple things in here that got moved to other events, but that's what an icebox is. It's a novelty freezer. It can stick around, or move about.

Uhh, it's ... back? I don't know if it'll inspire, but I figure instead of making a new event I could just modernize this one. So if the cool ascii logo and assortment of images aren't enough, there's the showcase of the former releases.

But yeah, I'm a culprit of moving my stuff around from event to event via the season

http://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/files/gat.gif (gat's gif is a little fast so I'll hotlink it instead)

I also made a big COMMENT HERE http://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/files/commenthere.gif gif file, but I trust if you have anything to say you'll scroll down and leave feedback if you wanted. Otherwise it's up to you. If you want to "sign up" for it for whatever reason, you can do that, I think? You know, for like posterity or something. I'll have it set to run in so and do Post stuff for it, move stuff to it, move stuff away from it. I'm not really picky/choosy or have a big agenda. I

I'll end it before the KOTM or even yield / preemptively end it earlier if something else of focus comes up, but yeah, enjoy!

On Saturday, March 27 at 4 PM Pacific, join us for a special Knytt Stories hoedown! You will be provided, free of charge, with TWO HOURS to create your very own Knytt Stories level from scratch.

Never used the Knytt Stories editor before? No problem! Download Knytt Stories here. (If you've never played it before, give the tutorial or bundled level a go to get a feel for how the game works.) The editor comes included, and a good way to learn to use it is by cracking open existing levels and poking at them to see how they work. This guide is also recommended reading.

Join us on IRC for camaraderie, support and merrymaking! Point your favourite IRC client to #glorioustrainwrecks on irc.freenode.net, or use our handy-dandy in-browser chat here.

Upload your level here when it's done!

(And remember: don't eat the mushroom.)

Sergio's Games plot inventory

Inspired by mcc and L, I have compiled a list of plot goals for all games I have released (collaborations included). Games are arranged in roughly chronological order. Games that can be considered domination fantasies or where killing something is the primary goal are presented in blood red. Borderline or flimsy cases are presented in dark red. Let me know if you disagree with any of the synopses or categorisation.

EDIT: I read ella guro's original tweet and came up with a slightly different interpretation. So now you'll also find a * next to games that I feel reject or punish the player's attempts at mastery.

Snappy Step Simulator

I tried to make a game where you control the rotation of the main character's two stick legs, but the end result was crashing. So I changed it to hopping and alternating feet.

Shift will make you move slower horizontally. Don't let your rocket arms bump into anything. Your feet check constantly for active object overlap, so sometimes it's possible to run across stretches of thin or tiny blocks.

I, uh, need to find a replacement for K&P that doesn't crash. I'm very familiar with the K&P/MMF system and maybe this has been holding me back from switching? I'll look into Game Maker.

Justice Mustache: The Future of it.


So, yeah. I released Justice Mustache: Christmas Caper a few days ago. I tried my best on adding variety for the bosses.
Not sure how it's going to go with Zecks, but that's beside the point.
As you saw earlier, I tried making an ARG relating to Justice Mustache 4, and I gave up because I, as mentioned earlier, was too lazy to make it.
Not sure how the future of the series is going to go. Can someone help?

One-Button GIRP


So while at GDC I heard a story about this game. Apparently, while he was making it (at GDC), a "usability guru" came up and started talking to him about it. His suggestion: Use fewer keys. It's too complicated to use all ten numbers to denote points on the screen; people will get confused.

So of course upon hearing this well-meaning but obviously misguided advice, I decided to make One-Button GIRP.

Hold in the space bar to gather strength, release to launch yourself in the air. You grab handholds automatically, assuming you're not moving too fast to grab onto it. (In practice this means your "jumps" have to be pretty carefully calibrated.)

Sound effects by Daphny.
