MAGS - MAY
« on: 01 May 2003, 17:30 »
Well Me and Jannar have come up with a nice solution for this month, combining some things to make a laugh.

The game has to be a parody, our sugestions were for the game to be a parody round the Full Throttle 2 crappiness and how everything should have been better, you can make a parody game based around taking the piss out of this or another adventure game you feel dissapointed with. Alternativly, you could base your game on a character, possibly you, who has to hunt down the team who made Monkey Island 4 and slaughter them like little lambs on a col Spring morn..... lol, just some sort of parody, based around a game that should have been good, but wasn't.

You must have at least three rooms, at least on Easter Egg hidden within the game, must have a witty or pun filled name / title, character must have at least one idle animation.


Have Fun    :D

Games in by 25th as usual.

Why does parody have to be negative toward its target?

Yeah, I do think it'd be better if it was just 'a parody of an adventure game'.. personally I can't think of one I've been dissapointed about..

Making parody over adventure games might be hard for me, because (cough) I haven't played too many of them and the ones I've played have been pretty enjoyable.

Well, I'll try anyway, this could turn out to be funny, or a pile of missed puns.

yeah me too, but the only game I can think of that people were dissapointed with is MI4, and it's one I haven't played yet :/  maybe I'll just pretend I really hated MI2.

I thought a parody was a fun version on something serious like:

robin hood men in tights
hot shots
spaceballs

etc.

you could make a game based around the hatred of you not being able to get the game, to play, then you finnaly get it and voila..... you're dissapointed and it won;t install     :P

Has anyone started anything?

I've got things running pretty fine, though I think there is quite few days that I really can spend with this. Consider that as me giving some advantage to you. :)

Well no entries so far and the deadline is today, if anyone can get it in by the 29th then I will accept it, but i'm gonna move on to making easier rules (and more enjoyable) for next month as this month has yet again been a disappointment for mags

Mine is coming. I'm not sure if I get it done tonight though, but at the latest tomorrow.

I think that technically this months limits were easy enough. I mean, three rooms and so on, not too hard to do, is it?

Parody was the keyword this month to make it difficult. Too bad.

Edit: Yes, like I figured, I couldn't finish it by today. But, it shouldn't bee too hard for me to get it done tomorrow. I have work, though, but I finish it in the evening.

I basically did all the work this weekend, so don't expect anything spectacular. Anyway, of course I hope that you will enjoy it. :)

Till tomorrow then.

I so hate to do this, but I'll keep my entry waiting one more day. :(

Actually blame Magintz for this. He's the one who gave extra-time! :)
