Title: All in a day's work.
Sup!

I attended WWMDSF12 this weekend and got no sleep as I built a game from scratch over the course of 48 hours with a kick ass crack team. Our entry is called Tethyrd, it's a top-down shmuplike where the gimmick is that you must plug your gun into a power outlet to fire it. Crazy difficult, and ridiculously silly. This was a lot of fun to build, and we are considering continuing the project to flesh it out.

In the next day or two, I will write up my postmortem. Till then, enjoy!

How many rooms are there? I went out of bounds on the 2nd one and went to the door that way. lol

It's very hard to get unplugged though- is there some key I didn't mash that unplugs you?

Oh yes. Controls are listed on the WWMD archive page.

Controls: WASD to move, mouse cursor to aim, mouse button to shoot (when plugged in), E to unplug.

There are many bugs. (It's really hard to create a game in two days, as it is.) You can crash your Flash plugin by colliding with a door and an enemy at the same time! :D

We only had enough time to make 4 stages, and they were done at the end of the second day. We also didn't get our stage-completion mechanic implemented (which was going to be destroying the enemy spawners) so we skipped it and allowed the doors to instantly transition to the next stage.

Must have been exciting to make though!

Do the weird ass box arm things have a name?

Is there a key for plugging in? Because that's kind of hard to do too..

Nope. I want to do a few things about that: 1) Make the collision areas bigger. Probably going to work a bit like Apple's magnetic power cords: just get it close, and it will snap into place. 2) Directly interacting with the plug, even just to 'nudge' it. I don't want it to be too easy; Part of the fun is adding a slight challenge to key concepts like that. (SLIGHT)

Anyway, here's my postmortem: http://blog.kodewerx.org/?post=3
