Ideas are a dime a dozen. It's the execution that matters. The right person can make the most mundane idea into something wonderful and the wrong person can make an amazing idea into something absolutely horrible.
Now I'm kind of interested in seeing what would happen if there was a contest/challenge where the exact same beginning and end had to be used...

Anyway, here's proof I've been working on my game.

VampireWombat: You are very right....Please give a swift execution (nod)

My game includes quite a few characters from the film.

Your have choices at Munchkin land that will determine how your journey will play out..

I can guarantee swift is one thing that won't happen.
And already there's a big difference between our games. Mine will be based on the 14 books written by L. Frank Baum, not the movie. The primary characters will be Dorothy, Tik-Tok, Scraps, and the Saw-Horse.

I dont know why... but this gives me a great idea for a Dr Who game with the 10th Doctor and Captain Jack Harkness...

Well, I vaguely remembered something and confirmed that the 10th Doctor did indeed face animated scarecrows in the episode Human Nature. So maybe that's where the idea came from?

Very wise words indeed.
There's a few people I know who could do with learning that. (nod)

I'll admit I'm reusing a lot of assets for my entry, and most of you have probably seen the characters before,
but I hope to make up for it by playing around more with cool gameplay mechanics.
I'm currently trying to make a sequence where you can use a pair of binoculars in gameplay:

If someone's up for doing music and scripting we could make a joint effort for a(nother)... Wizard of Oz game!(nod) I have sth in mind (I've already made some drawings too!). Else I won't have enough time, it's been like 5 years since the last MAGS I could join...:cry: PM me if you're up to the task, I'm thinking about a one-playable-room game

So, I need to hire a time manager?
I believe at this point Tik-Tok is the only thing I have finished, except for walk cycles. Everything else I've started ranges from one or two shapes to being almost finished. Scraps, Jack Pumpkinhead, the Saw-Horse, and the throne room being on the almost finished side.

Scarecrow and his quest for a brain.
Being tested......

This says it all:

"Why are you looking so glum, Mr, Scarecrow?"
"I'm fed up! People don't take me seriously."
"They ignore me and think I'm just a stoopid, old scarecrow."
"I could while away the hours"
"Conferrin' with the flowers,"
"If I only had a brain."
"I don't think you're stupid, Mr. Scarecrow."
"Ah, you are just trying to be nice to me, Miss Dorothy."
"No. if I had a brain I could be a someone."
"Someone who is admired, respected."
"A poet or an artist maybe?"

I'm now confused. Jonathan Crane should already have a brain. He already has a doctorate before turning into the Scarecrow. And will Batman show up? And why is Dr. Jonathan Crane talking to the Queen of Hearts in Oz? This is a crossover of Batman, The Wizard of Oz movie, and Alice in Wonderland? I'm so very confused by the art. lol

Looks interesting. Congratulations on the completion. I'm still a long ways from finishing mine.

Holy crap! :shocked:
Congratulations on the release Slasher.

If this was a contest on who could finish a game first, you'd be the winner.

It looks interesting. I'll play it as soon as I have time. :-D
