That's a shame, Ibispi. :(

I'm going into cheerleader mode for the rest of you, though. Come on you guys, you can do it! Go Slasher! Go Jack! Go Mandle! Woo! :-D

Oh, well. Still three of us may make it, hopefully...

I'm dedicating tomorrow night and Wednesday to completing my game but will still have to see how it goes.

I've already cut the concept down from the original idea and it may need further cutting to get done on time. But that's the way it goes, eh?

Yes, I've stopped adding features and started adding necessities. Hopefully I will have some time after to add the best feature of all.

Sure, after the main MAGS event, you could work on it to make a "deluxe edition".  It's all good. :-D

Jack: why add the best bit last? It should have been first (laugh)

Mandle: Spare that axe (laugh)

Ibispi: That's what I hated about school (laugh)

Well, I'm practically done with mine ready or not here I come (laugh)

I'm going to have to back out of this MAGS because I cut back the concept of my game to the point where I felt it was not interesting enough to release in that form.

My initial vision was a bar that customers came in and out of and the bartender gained an insight into their lives via that interaction...

But that didn't happen.

What I could have released was much less than that and was starting to fall into just a Diner-Dash kind of gameplay of serving drinks before the customers run out of patience...

I did want that to be a part of the gameplay but not the everything and didn't want to code a bunch of boiler-plate over the game in a rush and then have to go back in and strip it back out...

Summary: I got lazy...:(

Admit it, Mandle. Those cut up faces were haunting your dreams and you had to stop before they cross into this realm or pull you into theirs.

As for me, I can get it releasable and it might make sense, but there will be no awesome extras.

Racist

Racist is a kinetic racer (think Asteroids without the asteroids). Complete 4 "story" tracks or play arcade mode. Beat Chad in the last race to learn his true motives.







Download (Windows)
Download (Linux)

CONTROLS: Up, Down, Left, Right

EPILOGUE: I ended up having to leave out a lot of cool features, which includes simple combat. (The ships and checkpoint poles are placeholder art, for frigsakes). Your ship is a hair faster than Chad's, so once you figure out overtaking it should be (too) easy to get 1st place. Mess up and you will have a challenge on your hands.

Thanks for the entries guys. Real life has come up so I’m a bit busy.
Who fancies an extension until Sunday Night (GMT)?

Also the new Feb MAGS thread will be a teeny bit late but it will be up later today.

YAY can't wait to play the Jan entries! The two so far look very intriguing. I'm also curious (and maybe a little afraid) of what theme Slasher came up with for Feb. (laugh)
I'm entering no matter the theme, so I can practice my pixel "art".

I played Fallen Hero last night and I really enjoyed it. I really like the teaming-up of Slasher and Cassiebg.

The overall experience was fun and a great idea. Good story and good execution of the theme. Not particularly challenging in terms of puzzles, the game flowed well and related a great story.

Well done.
