Effbee, how are you reading

Effbee, how are you reading my mind?
I was thinking of a similar event relating to retro games.

Also if you want you can use this for ideas. Also I had to make the link a search query because there's no playlists for shooters. :/

is it okay if

I make graphics and sounds ahead of time, and then implement all that in 2 hours when the event comes?

because i'm going to go for a more polished feel of a trainwreck this time as I have something else i'd want to mock.

The only "rule" is the theme.

maybe i'll still do it and submit it rulebreakingly late

I made a space themed game

I made a space themed game for this but it isn't a shooter but more of a joke game. Only noticed that part of the theme when I came to upload it.

Oh well I still have a ton of other ideas I want to do and I can submit it to some other event later.

...

This was a great event! I enjoyed playing all of the submissions. I'm especially fond of Zipzap!

Inspirations

Bosconian. Berzerk. Sinistar. Tempest. Defender. Wizard of Wor. If you think this challenge is all about Space Invaders, turn your mind to these gems.

I was thinking of making a Sinistar clone, but I really suck at making stuff like things like that.

Timezones

Hey, would it be okay to make a the game a bit early or late because here in the UK it starts at like 4am because of BST?

SpindleyQ's picture

Yeah, of course! Around

Yeah, of course! Around here, the only important rule is this: If there is any rule that gets in the way of you making the game you want to make, disregard it.

Thanks

That's on of the best rules I've ever heard!

whoa smedis

that avatar is pretty fast... if you can parse the speed a little. I mean I know you're simply THAT productive... but your feet must get tired sometimes... if you can change the speed a bit.

I like elk

This was ludicrously successful! I'm sad that I couldn't attend.

I have a good idea for a future Themed Trainwreck Someday...

This is awesome! I wanted to participate this week, but it was too crazy with moving preparations. But I'm getting on a plan to Tokyo tomorrow, and I just might make a game for this event on the flight.

You're going to Tokyo?!?
Tell me how it is when you get there.
