anyone who clicks in that many pixels the hard way gets an automativ thumb from me.
Seriously, it was obviously pretty long, but on the big screen it was kinda hypnotic too. If you asked everyone you'd have 50 different versions of what was going on... i likes :)

Became boring quite fast, ran only in a little window and when I pressed escape, a BSOD showed up in Vista. Does not like. But I'm not thumbing it down, because it's something new.

There was a lot more I wanted to do, but the engine took much longer to complete than I'd hoped. A final version and ports are in the works.

"maybe see it as a game entry for nullarbor next year?"
Maybe. ;)

"ran only in a little window"
Had this problem on my laptop at the party, so I did all my testing in 640x480. Stupid modern hardware refusing to support nice resolutions. *ponders workaround*

"a BSOD showed up in Vista"
Ack, Vista. :X I shall investigate.

Selfvote, ripped tune, boring tile based engine, random sprites glitching around.

Sorry, but the circle jerking ends here. ;)

Needs more design. It gets too repetitive after the first 3 minutes.

original idea and style, but not interesting enough

good music, a fullscreen mode would have been nice

No credit for the musician? Is it ripped commercial stuff? :(

Music is by my cousin, DJ Safariboy. He happens to live right around the corner from where Syntax was, so I asked him to whip something up.

Jimage: the tune is quite good, credits would have been highly deserved in your prod ;)
added on the 2007-08-02 03:05:20 by keops keops
i like the idea and the progression.
am curious for the final :)

keops: You're right. He is credited quickly at the end, but I didn't have time to do anything nifty with the credits. That's another thing I'll fix with the final.

Probably a bit slow to progress, but certainly kept me entertained.

Does anything happen in the end? I got bored and pressed escape.

I did to. It could make the difference of thumb up. But I need to say this is not worth 6 mb of my hdd.. Ever seen Paradise ? :D

Pig for nice engine :D

Cool idea

i dig the music
the prod is totally WTF :)
Would have been ok as a 4k maybe, as a demo it is way too boring.

Nice tune, looks liek beeing some kind of simulation. Too bad that the result looks quite unfinished and boring
