This sounds like a job for a trainwreck: demake a game, without directly violating copyright. This could be as big as the B-games compo was!

The difficult part is going to be coming up with something nobody else is going to do, yet popular enough that everybody will recognize it.

Anybody here going to enter? Or team up?

Edit: Reference to this problem here.

There's a recently-started thread about it on the forums with no resolution at present, so I guess so. Thanks for the heads-up. (I think it's mostly harmful to IE users, though.)

Forums are down

And just as I'd got started and all.

I think I'll make a vaguely Atari-ish Ikaruga. I wonder if I can simulate slowdown using the room speed in GM?

I wish I felt more excited

I wish I felt more excited about this :-(

Maybe my standards are too high, I want to do an actual Batari Basic 2600 game for it...
