UPDATE: We placed 6th!

UPDATE: Download the complete 100-in-1 Klik & Play Pirate Kart here! (31mb, 7z format)

UPDATE: The Meltdown may be over, but the fun is just beginning! Answer the call for metadata!


Thank you so fucking much to all 17 members of TEAM GLORIOUS TRAINWRECKS DOT COM! YEAAAAH!!

The TIGSource B-game Competition was designed specifically for us to win. Yet, it ends in just over a week and no useful work has come out of our collective efforts thus far! The only solution: an insane, balls-out impossible plunge into madness.

Our entry is the "100-in-1 Klik and Play Pirate Kart", and in just forty-eight hours, we will produce 100 games. If some of them aren't done in Klik and Play, so much the better. If we don't actually make it to 100 games, well, neither did those 100-in-1 pirate carts. We can always subtly alter game names in the menu and/or do game-breaking sprite hacks.

Like the Klik of the Month Klub, you have no more than two hours to complete a single game. UNlike the Klik of the Month Klub, there is no set time to start and end -- the Pirate Kart Meltdown runs continuously the entire weekend. Klik & Play is freely downloadable.

Also unlike the Klik of the Month Klub, there will be PRIZES. I will personally mail terrible games to your front door for contributing to this noble effort. (Which games, exactly, are forthcoming.) Participants in the Meltdown are competing for these three prizes:

The HOLY SHIT I'M DROWNING IN GAMES prize goes to the person who produces the greatest number of games in the 48-hour period.
The WTF IS GOING ON HERE prize goes to the person who develops the game with the most bizarre mechanics.
The VIVA VARIETY JOHNNY BLUEJEANS prize goes to the person with the largest range of game styles.

Voting in these categories will be open to everyone who creates games this weekend. Yes, even the HOLY SHIT I'M DROWNING IN GAMES prize is put to a vote. I just feel like it, that's why.

Either I'm ineligible for prizes or other people have to send me shit if I win. Prize donations are welcome -- hell, if we round up enough people, a second or third place wouldn't be inconceivable.

You Have a Hangover. It is a game about struggling with terrible jumping mechanics, which gives me an idea for another game.

Why aren't you on IRC? That's where we keep the running count, and also yell at each other.

Dude, I can't do anything

Dude, I can't do anything with just the .GAM file! You need to run the "Save Stand-Alone Game" option under the File menu and then zip up all the junk that it spits out.

Hurry! Justice depends on it!

Oh dang, whoops. Sorry about

Obviously I'm an idiot.

I would like to nominate for the unofficial (i.e. I made it up, there is no prize) DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR award (for sheer, gutsy, unfullfilled vision) Haze, who had the gall to make a klik n play MMORPG.

Are there no references to this on the TIGSource B-game Competition site?

Also agree, the title wrapper should be garished up.

team voting

Mentioned in the voting forums is the fact that only a maximum of 3 team members should be allowed to vote on their own creation. I am pretty sure this is directed at us, as all the other games are one man teams (with one exception). I am all for honour, following rules etc., how are we going to coordinate this?

Who on our team has an account? I don't as of yet.

I missed that bit. SpindleyQ and I have accounts on there, but I'm not sure who else does.

(Though just to be perfectly clear: if anyone else on here has voted, now's the time to pipe up! Votes are reversible.)

SpindleyQ's picture

I think absolute rule #1 is

I think absolute rule #1 is DO NOT VOTE IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED EVERYTHING. It would be seriously uncool to have people from here just voting ourselves up without partaking in all the fantastic games on offer. It is part of our site's mission to foster and support terrible, excellent game development, so let's give the other people who participated their due!

Honestly I would feel kind of uncomfortable voting for myself. I'm hardly a member of the TIGSource forum community -- I read the blog, sure, but my only two posts on the forums are pimping my entry. If indeed we are to be given eternal glory as B-game designing champions, then we should go about it honestly. (Besides which, our internal prizes are going to be way better, anyway. I'll be starting our own voting thread very soon now.) That said, I don't mind if a couple of our own vote for ourselves, but yeah, post here if you do and let's not go over the community-accepted limit, please.

I agree with all that, but I

I agree with all that, but I also seriously think that ours is the most fantastical and ambitious and beautiful entry/concept by far.

i'm of the opinion that no

i'm of the opinion that no one who's actually entered in the contest should vote.

and isn't having three team members who vote on the game unfair to those who entered the contest alone?
