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!

Klik & Play is absolutely free to download, and learning it takes minutes, so everyone can get in on the action. Want to talk to your fellow Klikwreckers? Join us on IRC -- server irc.freenode.net, channel #glorioustrainwrecks. Join the mayhem!

For more information, check out the KotM N00B FAQ.

Sign up below to get reminded by email the day before the klikkening begins!

Wait, what time?
Are we dealing with DST differently?
Is it 6PM Eastern? (Which I guess would be DST) It used to be 7, but I guess with the pushed up change we're out of synch with the world?

The time is 4:00pm by my clock, which is now in PDT (GMT-0700) and last month was in PST (GMT-0800). There's supposed to be a whizbang javascript thing that should set the timezone automatically for you if you're logged in and it changed, which appears to have worked for me.

This handy widget might help you out?

BEGIN FROTH

I've got months of pent-up Klik madness just waiting to be let out tomorrow. Super-excited!

I wasn't able to make it last month because I was in Tacoma, buying a digital piano! Why do I bring this up? I now have the ability to make my own MIDIs! Sure, the usual robotic transcription of sheet music with terrible instrument choice is a delightful thing, but just imagine the possibilities of one-take one-track wait-wait-I-can-do-this stumbling and stuttering piano-playing!

Sounds like a deal to me!

I might do that same thing too! Or maybe even a vocal track? I hadn't really given it a thought before.

What the fuck, tomorrow already?

I can't decide if I have an idea for this month or not. Like I do, but it's probably more terrible than my previous games.

If you don't have an idea you can always just wing it. That's what I usually do, and sometimes it even works out.

O.K.!!

i would like to make a game this time!

Please do!

rgbwar

rgbwar!

Kind of more of a toy than a game, I'm afraid.
Space to reset the RGB armies. They kind of swarm and flock together and then shoot laser beams at enemy colors.
The faster they move, the faster their lasers recharge. And the more they're flocked, the faster they move.

You can influence the movements a bit with the mouse.

the giant ghost bee

messed up with the whole real story scene so i had to throw it into the first real level. it worked out i think. you have to collect rose bushes to restore a rose garden! i think everything is somewhat okay, save for the whole glitchy platforms thing.

EDIT: forgot! 's' key to shoot. 'left shift' to jump.

Pizzaz Delivery

Step 1: Drive your car to the pizza stack.
Step 2: Drive your car to a house.
Step 3: Walk to that house's door.
Step 4: Deliver a pizza.

Arrow keys move around, space gets out of your car. Robbers attack you when you're out of your car, though, so watch out!

Crap, I forgot to sign up, and I thought it was on the fifth Sunday like last month because of the month starting on a Sunday. I'll try to join in next month. Maybe I'll even make something this time.

you people are getting too good at klik and play.

what you could stand to improve on is zipping a folder containing your game so i don't need to make one myself!

snapman's picture

I've never encountered an issue with that... if anything, every game I unzip is usually double-foldered?

  • drop game files into folder -> right-click folder and choose "add to compressed folder" -> upload zip file
  • download game to desktop -> right-click zip and choose "extract to /zipfilename" -> result is zipfilename/zipfilename/gamefiles.gam
SpindleyQ's picture

What's ridiculous is that it

What's ridiculous is that it would be completely trivial to have an unzip tool that looked into the zip file and checked whether everything in the zip file was contained in a single folder or not, and create one if not. To my knowledge, one does not exist. (Though I'm not the first person to think of it.)

I don't usually, but all my games are single EXEs and don't have all those external K&P files, so I don't think it really matters as much.
