The last one got purged, so the Hour Game thread is back with a vengance!!!1

This is mine, http://www.sylpher.com/helm/Pyramid.zip

This is butchers, http://www.geocities.com/kyriakosthebutcher/2000.zip

this is commatoes' http://www.tbns.net/commatoes/terlethour.zip

and this was Grundislav's http://www.agagames.com/grundislav/games/hourgame.zip

The topic was "Humourous and absurd main character deaths". This went alright.

If you want to make a new contest, hop on to #ags and propose. Somebody's guhguhCommatoesguhguh always available for a Hour Game. If you want to add to an existing topic, do so. If you want to tell us something about the Hour Games, this is the thread in which to do it.

A world of thrilling adventure and daring ensues...

However, to get the crowbar you must click ctrl-I, and it's black and really small, so it's next to impossible to find there.

Bad Helm! :)

Okay, I tried my own hour game out, using the same theme as the first four hour games in this thread. Now geocitites is being an ass so I had to put the file in my school web space, which I'm sure is in some way not allowed, but what the hell, I want to release the game, I don't want to wait on one small file to not load. I am giving a link to the school one and the geocities one, that way if I get geocities to take my file I can quickly remove mine before it might be detected, though I doubt it will I really don't know. Enjoy.

I meant after you used the hand on the jeep, Helm. To use it, you must press ctrl-I, and to find it in there, you must click randomly in the black box because the crowbar is 2 pixels tall/wide.... unless you updated it before you put up this thread.

But inventory items are usually always displayed left and top, so I got it first click, esseb. It did take me a while to figure out that whole inventory thing, and after so many diffrent thoughts of what it could be I finally hit upon it and...well...I won't ruint he endind.

I dunno about you guys, but I hit TAB for the inventory gui. Anyway, esseb is partially right, this confusion is all due to the fact that I was too bored to make a closeup graphical representation of the crowbar.


In many ways I consider this my flawed masterpiece...

You have to copy & paste the url, because hotlinking doesn't work. Toon Zone thinks that is evil.
