Dig, Jesus! Dig!

by monkeymad2 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A truthful reenactment of the time roughly 9000 years ago when God and Jesus buried loads of Dinosaur bones as a big joke.

Sort of a cross between The Incident and Terraria.

"Inspired by historical events and characters, this work of fiction was designed, developed and produced by a multicultural "...person..." of various religious faiths and beliefs."

Known Bugs:
-- If you miss a Dinosaur and it explodes into green dust, occasionally God will get a bit miffed and decide you don't deserve all the dinosaurs currently falling.
-- Occasionally, if you jump through a dirt block at the right angle Jesus will go for what looks like a nice leisurely roller-skate over the ground.

(If the game looks horribly blurry please try a different browser, Safari and Firefox work but I think Chrome has regressed)

Also, to view source just press "view source"'s all on one page (bleh).

Nice. I like Jesus's yellow propellent pixy dust.

@emveyh you just dig flat bottomed holes for the falling bones (leaving at least two blocks above the bones) then fill in the holes when the bones hand in them.
The game ends whenever your hand gets sore, I guess.

Heh, almost like Tetris... in reverse, somehow. I like the way digging feels. :P

The spade animation was a bit too blurry. A few more frames or a longer delay would have made it easier to watch.

This is like a great episode of South Park!

It wasn't too blurry for me so no problems.

I thought the mechanics of digging & burying are really a magical thing, I could do that all day. This game for me was very funny and obviously you didn't take a serious approach, refreshing. I think the concept has legs but could use a bit more polish.

Overall it was good for me, again the humor was great. Thanks for sharing it.

It seems to slow down after playing a short time in Chrome (Maybe 2 minutes of playtime before I closed the window fearing a crash). Also the game area renders so large that I have to scroll on my 1680x1050 laptop display.

@csanyk If it's rendering large you probably clicked on the iOS / Android one - the other Web one is set to only ever be a % of the window.
Unless you're talking about the 'Guide' then that's meant to be just out of view

Just ridiculous (in a good way). A bit buggy though.

I guess you need to dig pretty deep holes for the bones? I didn't manage to get any of them buried. Still, I love the idea & the humour. I had fun just watching Jesus jetting around on his yellow-green butt spray - good work!

Hilarious game. Probably the weirdest game I've played yet. Well done!

This was really funny and a great idea (I wish I would have thought of this).

Well, it's funny and actually quite playable. If only there was some end goal, it would be even better. Anyway, decent entry!

Worth it for the theme song.

funny concept gameplay needs work though.

LOL, great stuff. I enjoyed the song too!

Well, very funny concept. Gameplay is a bit slow and the controls are kind of confusing (WASD and arrow keys at the same time breaks my mind!).
