Hipster Annihilator 9000

by deige101 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Robo Hipster Annihilator 9000
(Z) - Interact
(X) - Annihilate
Arrows Keys - Move

The Robot Overlord has issued an important mission...
Identify and annihilate all hipsters... perhaps enjoy some fine art on the way.
Make sure to interact with the targets first.
Innocent life forms should be spared the robot wrath.

* No hipsters were harmed in the creation of this game.
** I would probably be considered a hipster by most, so please realize this is just a general goof against douche baggery.

Tested on:
Mac OS X 10.7.5 with Java 7, and Windows 7 with Java 7
(you need Java)

My annihilation button did nothing on Windows 8, but I thoroughly enjoyed interacting and reading all the dialogue. Nice job.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 3:25am

8-bit sprites were cool. Well, they were cool back when I did them originally...

Apr 29, 2013 @ 3:26am

Really liked the idea, but was a bit confused by what was going on. Graphics and title are great, too!

Apr 29, 2013 @ 3:27am

I love the music loop and the art is striking. I also laughed, literally, outloud at some of the lines.

A+ Would play again.

would be great to have walk animation/movement. Having depth makes me want to move up and down like a Beat-em-Up

This was pretty fun - pew pew!
Took me a minute to figure out you could only annihilate them while talking.

Hilarious stuff, testing my hipster radar :) .
Great voice acting too! I encountered a bug though. A hipster resurrected after i annihilated him, then became an innocent. I found out after I annihilated him.

I liked it. Made me laugh =)
Didn't realise there was non-hipsters to avoid at first and I accidentally destroyed one. I liked the concern for that too =P

All in all a good job.

You can not annihilate the hipsters, not at all what I was expected.
This game should be called Robo Hipster Interactions

I spent a decent amount of time trying to get jglfw to build and it just wasn't happening. I have to leave it unrated for now, but I'll try again later.

Amusing game. Really enjoyed the art style.

Great game, although by ~round 5 I had seen all of the possible hipster phrases and it got a bit monotonous. Good work though.

Really nice, +1 for voice acting

I was playing this game way before it was on the Most Coolness list. :) I like the graphics, but I couldn't figure out the gameplay... wish it was longer.

I liked the art references, well done.

Like the sprites and fits the theme. Like the humor, it reminds me of a game you've probably never played :P

Wow that was hilarious :D "Hipster down"

I laughed so much, great entry!

Apr 29, 2013 @ 4:24pm

This was pretty funny, some of the comments were hilarious! wish there has been more of them, the game got pretty repetitive quickly after you have read all the messages and know what to kill. Great sounds too, really liked the robot voice.

This was unique, simple and hilarious. Really great job. It reminded of the work of a french writer who was heavily influenced by Albert Camus... Mmmm, nevermind, you've probably never heard of him.

Loved the art, music and dialogue. I think there might be a bug though - no matter what I did, the 'X' button always told me to find a target first.

Eerily realistic simulation of living in San Francisco.

I must admit, it was really funny :D

I don't know if I was playing it the right way. I pressed X and it didn't kill. The concept is really fun, nice way of making fun of the theme.

I ran it on Windows 8 and it worked perfectly fine for me. Pretty funny dialogue and nice style. Found a bug when I killed a hipster close to a wall he kept on rolling around the gallery dead for the rest of the round :)

Apr 29, 2013 @ 6:57pm

This is sort of unpleasant.

FuzzyWuzzie says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:04pm

Hah, that was hilarious! Nicely done!

Was very amusing/funny!

Apr 29, 2013 @ 8:23pm

Pretty funny and the art style is solid.

Cool little game, pretty funny too. Not that I approve of killing hipsters :p.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:23pm

Haha, wonderful :D I love the hipster's monologues and the robot's snide remarks. Very well done.

spilth says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:39pm

Was cute and well done but could use more hipster phrases.

egos says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 10:03pm

i didnt have fun maybe due to the english based gameplay

Apr 29, 2013 @ 10:34pm

Odd that the levels were the same when all you needed to do was write different quotes. Nice music!

Loved it on OSX. Made me laugh when I annihilated my first hipster.

Super cool! Had to read the comments to figure out how annihilating worked, but after that it was very fun :)

Apr 30, 2013 @ 5:08am

I gave this a remarkably high score, considering that it isn't like __amazing__. I think you pretty much hit the button with this as far as LD48 entries go.

It preminded me of a game about the Turing test: an online multiplayer game in which cyborg hunters interview cyborgs... and each other!

Some of the quotes really had me laughing. The target system seemed very buggy, though.

Great humor and an interesting take on the theme.

Apr 30, 2013 @ 9:16am

The hipster lines are hilarious :DDD

The game is really cool, but I had a bit of trouble with the "Interaction" key, sometimes it would not respond.

Despite this, great job! :)

Haha! That was funny! Really enjoyed it, even if its more of a joke. My one critique is: Hey! whats wrong with arcade fire!
