Um, no.

SteelGolem says ...

oh god. this thing is just awful.

Hamumu says ...

Very funny take on the theme. Mostly I don't like when people jerk the theme around, but that's pretty good. I'm rather concerned of what *specifically* my "two manlinesses" are, but I am so manly that losing them was effectively impossible. I let go of the keys around the 2 minute mark just so I could move on with my life.

So way too easy, and rather bad as a game (if I want to be doing that, I'll play Tony Hawk so I get to do flip tricks in between balancing sessions!), but a really funny entry.

BenW says ...

Amusing. I love watching the guy get more beat up.

fydo says ...

Nice crying sound ;)

philhassey says ...

This is a serious contendor for the Hairy Chestival Memorial Trophy! Really - crazy silly game :) To improve:

- better music
- have your time in huge numbers on the screen
- make the game get harder over time

Sophie Houlden says ...

well, it was an interesting approach to the theme. but I could not with my hand on my heart, say it was fun :(

mjau says ...

Mmh, not very fun. Even if I'd liked this kind of game, the difficulty doesn't seem to increase over time and it seems completely random, so there's not much of a game to speak of in any case.

Original take on the theme though =]

TenjouUtena says ...

Very unique twist on the theme. The game itself gets old after like 1:45, but a nice twist of the game.

saluk says ...

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............ Ok...

SethR says ...

Great idea :) Needed more variation while playing, like if you can hold out for a minute, they strip you naked or something. Some kind of progression.

My kind of game.

gimblll says ...

... horrible, and I think you know it... sorry. :)

Wiering says ...

Not my type of game.

BTW it says: "MSVCR71.dll could not be extracted!" but then runs anyway.

greencow says ...

i will not react to your chains!

chaotikZA says ...

Mind numbing...

This “morning’s” breakfast

Lucky me, I had waffles! Of course this wasn’t really morning, as I woke up around 2pm… But it was a nice way to start off the last day at least.


Chain Pain: Final Submission

Here it is. All that’s in the zip is the source code and the data; if I get less lazy by the end of today I’ll compile it with PyInstaller and make a Windows executable. Requires Python and PyGame.

Edit: Fun facts that weren’t in the README: Graphics made with Gimp and KolourPaint, sound effects made with my voice with my microphone, the two music files were made in WarioWare Touched’s toyroom using its piano and harmonica. Pretty much all the sounds had to be amplified with Audacity, too. Edit: Another fun fact is that the moving bar thing was inspired from Star Fox Adventures. You remember the Test of Fear? Though I have to say that game’s better than this one. =P

EditEdit: The Zip now contains a standalone EXE file so you can just double click on main.exe if you run Windows.

Edit³: If you want to see the high score system in action, change the best_time.txt file in data/ to something low, like 00:00 (I forgot to do that myself when I packaged it).

Chain Pain: In-game Screen

Here’s a screenshot of the in-game thing (taken by scrot, I was too lazy to do prt scr), featuring invisible Chains! (Except those holding the player down.) Once I implement the chains graphics I can work on prettifying it a bit more (sad to say what you see here is pretty much the limit of my art capabilities). You’ll understand what everything on the screen is when I release the full thing. =P

I’ve had this section done for a good while (and everything finished but the Play), so I figured I’d share it with you all. I particularly like the Creepy font.

I sacrificed two hours to go have a good meal, here’s some pictures!

I had a good amount of Pepsi, and I have more at home for tonight…

There’s the buffet table…

And here’s my dinner plate! Ham, beans, cookies, chips, rice krispy treats, carrots, roll… I’m full for now.
