Evolution Is A Boring Theme

by iamwhosiam - Jam Entry

(May take a second to load)

Bored with the idea of Evolution as a theme, we've made a quiz based completely on Pokemon evolutions.

That may sound ridiculous, and it is, I can't believe we actually went through with what was essentially an off-hand joke, but this isn't your ordinary quiz game. First of all, it's not on Newgrounds. Second, you don't get porn when it's finished.

--SPOILERS--
The ending was a bit rushed, I took out most of the possibilities of missing the ending cause I had no satisfying end state. My original idea was to have a 100 question quiz that the player would slog through, but that quickly sounded like a horrible idea, both for me and you.

In the end, I wish I wouldn't have had Chinese on Friday. That was a bad decision.

This was pretty humorous, and I learned I actually don't know anything about pokemon.

Yay, I got to the credits song! :)

Really funny. But I have to say, there's no such thing as a "boring" theme, only uncreative game designers. ;)

That was really fun!
You bent the theme a little bit and used humor as your main source of entertainment.

I LOVED IT! :)

BTW, you made me realize I'm really well informed when it comes to first generation pokemon XD
And that I don't know Weird Al at all!

Heh:) Never was a fan of Pokemon, and know nothing about them, but still really enjoyed the humor.

Just wanted to say thanks for this! My team was frustrated with the prompt too, and I think venting like this is a perfectly acceptable form of entry. Loved the humor. <3

Of course, I may be biased because I freaking love Pokemon.

Haha, I like how you gave up instantly on the theme, but did it with some gusto, unlike us. "SO THEY WANT EVOLUTION DO THEY??!!"

great fun. I wish you'd made the text white though. It was very hard to read.
