Hungry Jack

hj.png

HUNGRY JACK, a dice "game" I made for an online workshop about making your own tabletop games. It's playable in nearly any browser.

HJ is actually a classic dice game, except it's not so much a game at all. Essentially, on your turn you throw the dice and see what happens.

  • When it's your turn, click the "Throw Dice!" button or press the SPACEBAR.
  • If your dice show a number that doesn't have a token on it (or in this case, a burger), then you place a token there from your supply.
  • If your dice show a number that already has a token on it, you take that token and add it to your supply.
  • If you are supposed to place a token but you have 0, the game ends. The player with the most tokens left is the winner.

I wanted to illustrate things such as luck, skill, and player choice in my workshop, and this is a tool that helps explain things without me resorting to a lecture fomat. I had fun putting it together.

As you may pick up from the "notes" I added, it's not too engaging a game, but it can be fun and surprising. Young kids like to play it because they just might win, beating the adults that are playing along with them. After all: dice have no gods, no masters.

Full credits and other details available in game.

PROTIP: don't like a portrait? Click on it and it will randomly change to one of ten portraits devised by thispersondoesnotexist.com

ANOTHER PROTIP: Pressing the ESC key will return you to the main menu screen.

Her Universe

heruniverse_001.png

Happy Klickmas, mr._a ! I made a game for you. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Her Universe is a mouse-driven puzzle, where you use trial-and-error to assemble the pieces of a mixed-up story. Lots of audio recordings and a search on YouTube for strange atmospheric sounds made this one a lot of fun to make. I went out of my comfort zone for this one.

mr._a's wishlist included:
A.

i will live forever
the universe makes sense
there is hope
i can hear a body gouging at the wall and shrieking
i hope they bring wine!

B.

in lieu of air, a thick pudding

D.

[REDACTED]
the comfortable warmth of pissing slowly down one trouser-leg

X. CIRCLE ANYTHING: ALL / SOME / NONE / MIX & MATCH / WERE YOU INSPIRED? RUN WITH IT! YOU ARE YOUR OWN [QRV]. NEVER STOP

Enjoy, and "thank you for play!"

EDIT: Made one small change, and now the game is just a bit easier to finish in one go.

Gib!

You are a gibbed head in Quake. You need to roll around and find your body before it respawns! But it may be too late...
