It’s (still) done!

I don’t think we ever made a proper “It’s done” post so here it is. Our game is called The Combinator, the story of a highly advanced robot sent back in time to screw around. The idea here is that you can attack enemies and steal their powers, Kirby style and then combine them with the powers of other enemies, all in a turn based RPG sort of battle system. It’s pretty goofy, but I think it turned out well enough to be enjoyable. There’s a definite strategy to reaching the end, see if you can figure it out.

How to make your game into a single EXE

Hey all. I figured I would share a trick we use to make our game a single double-clickable .exe with no hassle, extraction, or installation. I’ve found a lot of Unity guys giving out .zips and this could really streamline the process.

Grab a copy of WinRAR. Pretty sure everybody has this except for the hardcore 7zip fanatics. WinRAR is better!

Create a new archive and name it whatever.


Copy all of your game data in there. For me it’s just an .exe and a font file.  For your it might be the Unity exe and the data folder or whatever.

Click SFX, then Advanced SFX Options. This basically turns the entire .RAR into a program that will extract itself then run your game.

Set some settings. Add the name of your game .exe to “Run after extraction” and make sure the extraction process is both hidden and going to a temporary directory. Check “Overwrite all files,” in case you ever need to make a bugfix it will overwrite the existing stuff in the temp folder with your new stuff.

Add an icon if you want under the Text and Icon section, but it’s not really necessary. After saving and hitting okay, you should now have a single .exe file that will Just Work. Hurray!

Our game is an RPG about absorbing enemies abilities and using them against them. Here’s a screenshot from the first town. Good luck fellow Ludumers

We’re making a sequel to our original game Obamapology, this time made out of arts and crafts graphics using a scanner from approx. the 1700s.

“You Are The Monster” Huh? Sounds Familiar…

This theme just so happens to be a rehash of the first ever ludum that superdisk and I took part in: LD 25 You are the villan. That ludum, we made a game called Obamapology. It was based around the idea of trying to do good deeds but ending up causing bad things (and, by extension, getting violently blamed for them). Now… its time for Obamapology: Term 2.

Superdisk and I are running a bit behind. But since we’re a team and other various reasons, we’d have to enter the Jam anyway. So, we’ll still (probably) get the game done. :)
