Well, I gave up on the actual contest. But lately I’ve really been having fun making generators (you know, web ‘games’ that randomly spit out some name like “Fluffyborg The Transient”), so I made another that sort of fits the theme! It’s not based on any particular movie, but it’s not hard to see elements of every Summer blockbuster in it. Here’s a ‘screenshot’:
In a world…
Where ice cream is optional…
And a boy…
Must face the worst disaster the world has ever known.
A Spike Lee Joint.
Coming Summer 2038 to a holotheater near you.
The ‘download link’ is http://hamumu.com/random.php so go generate some previews of your own! I’m marking this as my final entry, but I do hope to add more possibilities to it right up until the deadline. Luckily, the link won’t be changing! Ah, the magic of the web.
(Yes, I included both turnips and unicorns)
No unicorns currently, but it’s going well. It’s about the Pink Elephants on Parade scene in Dumbo; Dumbo shoots peanuts out of his nose to make the pink elephants disappear.
The engine’s working fine, but I’m manually scripting where the elephants appear in the level, (as opposed to randomizing) which is going to be time consuming. Power ups are possible, and if I have leftover time then there may also be a boss; though I’m almost certainly not going to have that time.
Here’s a quick look at my game so far. As you can see it’s very original. Made with vc++ 2008 and sdl
Yes the window width is far too big for no reason at the moment, but I don’t care. I’ve never made Tetris and I have not programmed for so long I figured I should make something small. The unicorn shape isn’t even working properly unlike in the screenshot.
This is my first game compo timed thingy even if the rules are relaxed and it’s just for fun this time. So don’t expect miracles.
Have fun, rwip out
And I’ve already got half my game done. See if you can guess what movie it’s based on, just by using the screenshot provided here. The second number in the title bar is score, since I’m currently too lazy to add in text support right now.
