Dangerous Dan

by DrunkenOrc - Competition Entry

Well, oh boy. Dangerous Dan. Graphics and music are shit, programming is shit, but I'd be damned if it doesn't make you laugh at least once. The dialog is the only thing that this has going for it, so pay attention!

Enjoyed the theme, and it did make me laugh. Can you actually GET a swamp key pass? I'm guessing no, but I only played it through once.

Thank you for the huge positive feedback on this little 'story' of mine. I wasn't expecting anyone to like it at all.

@Manuel777, yes, that is a common symptom reported when playing my games.
@Winterblood, no. You cannot get a swamp key pass. I just needed a way to prevent people from going to the left, and I decided to make it a joke on how often times there will be an arbitrary obstacle stopping you in games, even when it would be easier to just jump over it or walk around it.

I promise that for LD21 I will try making an actual game with the same humor in this. Meanwhile you guys can see other games I have submitted to kongregate.com with the same username, if you're interested in seeing my history of stupidity.

Haha, that was pretty fun.

Sorry, but I couldn't resist posting it to funnyjunk.com

Congrats on finishing the LD48.

It didn't quite make me laugh, but it did leave a smile upon my face. I'll give you that :P

This scathing critique against modern consumerism is a message kids need to hear.

Awesome, tremendously funny!
I especially liked how your choices affect the outcome of the game...

I'm all for silly dialogue (I even included some randomly-generated silly dialogue in my own entry), but if I'm honest I didn't find the dialogue in this game sufficiently amusing to carry the entry, and there isn't much else to it.

However everyone else seems to like it so I guess I'm just humour-impaired.

I did like the interpretation of the theme, with the items provided being more of a hindrance than a help, and the protagonist never actually getting to go on his adventure. But then, I'm a bit biased because I had fundamentally the same idea, although I made a completely different game out of it.

I really like this interpretation of the theme

May 6, 2011 @ 11:21am

The ending is good. "and then he died"^^

Hilarious, dude, and actually the game manages to show exactly the mêmes that the theme is based on.

Excellent entry in its minimalism :)

Nice looking and sounding and very funny! Found the fun factor a bit lacking though :-/...

Uwe Boll should make this a movie!
