Scuse me for the stupid question, but what exactly is an hour game? Was it created in an hour? Should you be able to complete it in an hour? Does it take an hour to download ;) ? And where does one find the contest rules on the web?

Made (art, programming and all), in under an hour.

As for contest rules, we usually just make them up on IRC and go from there. However, most of the more recent entries seem to be 1 person deciding to do it on their own.

Erotic? Well, I suppose if I was a girl, maybe.

Or it shot oil...

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.

Hmmm.... It seems to me that one gauntlet wasn't enough.

I think I should do a 24 in 24 gauntlet.

Any takers?

We had a small hour game compo at IRC. The rules were the following, set by Hajo:

Theme: Awkward silences.
Restrictions: At least two characters, 3 dialog options and a locked door.

Here's pmdee's entry: http://koti.mbnet.fi/mwe/ags/pmdee_hourgame.zip

Anyway you could announce an hour competition here a couple of days in advance, giving the exact time the rules will be posted, then more people can enter. e.g. Me ;)

Wretched, you see hour games usually aren't designed beforehand like that. They're usually being started quite spontaneously on AGS irc channel when we feel like it. :)

Or well, I don't know how the others have arranged them, but that's what we did. :P

Yeah, that's what I did. Except that I had no theme. I just made a game because I was über-bored, and then it occurred to me that it took only an hour to make.

There was an hour game thing announced in irc but I'm not sure if anyone really set ground rules.  Anyway, I told someone I could make a quick shooter and they said do it so an hour and change later....

INTESTINATOR!

Yes, as the valiant pilot of the experimental Intestinator enter a man's bowels and save him from the horror of communist occupation and bizarre alien bosses.

I've also included the source code (which looks terrible) for those who would like to get an idea of how to do a simple shooter.  I have commented it, but be aware that I threw this together in a very short time so the functions and such are not the way I would make them were I investing real time on it.  The graphics are also haphazard since I spent a majority of the time on the code and the two chiptunes!

Actually we did set a certain topic, ProgZ. The theme was: Animals. Here are the entries:

Woof by Ginny. (574 kb)

The Secret Of Hamster Island by me, Pablo. (6.3 Mb)

Pmdee also made a game but AFAIK he didn't upload it. I didn't even get to play it. :'( He can put it here himself later if he feels like it.

Enjoy!

I made an hour game Witness!

The rules were "You are a witness to a crime". That's all.
I actually completed it in about 4 to 5 hours. Left-click to examine, Right-click to talk.

Now, with his very own game: Alien Time Zone
