Dinosaur Jr. vs the 1960's

by devi ever - 48 Hour Compo Entry

NOTE : If you want to play this in windowed mode, just press F4.

My first real LUDUM DARE!

Thanks to everyone for the awesome love and support that made this first LD so fun, inspirational, and an unforgettable experience!

One final note about DIONAUR JR. vs THE 1960's... Even though I consider this game complete, given more time I would have liked to create two additional levels, one where you, as the Dinosaur, kill JFK, and another where you stop the moon landing. Maybe if enough people really enjoy this I'll consider expanding it with some free dino dlc. :)

Haha, funny game. The style attracted me, beautiful psychedelic colors.
Too bad it's that short.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 1:43am

That was fun! I kept hitting enter though and missed the credits screen twice :(

This was the game everyone was looking forward to playing.
Gameplay was fun, although the instructions were kind of hard to look at because of the colours.

Hahaha Nice game ! SO that's what you did with that funny dinosaur animation ;) Great work !

shohs says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 3:44am

Well, it's definitely a unique concept! I really enjoyed the graphics, especially the color scheme. I would have liked it to be a bit longer though.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 3:44am

That was awesome on so many levels. How can you not love a game about a blue dinosaur noming on concentrated crowds of people.

Epic I love this

TheDreik says ...

Very fun game! It is a pity that the fun ends with a victory so quickly.

Great concept

Aug 26, 2013 @ 7:02am

What a twist ending!

I spent a few minutes asking why this gust of wind wasn't letting me eat the stage, and I realized, I didn't eat enough patrons!

Fantastic colors and fun pixel art!

Perhaps adding a way to turn the dino around, or get the fans that are in the lower left corner of the stage would be good?

Truly gruesome! Great game!

That was a fun little game, altough i would have appreciated a windowed mode. The instructions were bit harsh for eyes on 24" monitor :)

Awesome. Nothing to add.

60's psychedelic timetravelling nonsense? I love it
One of best entries in here, definetely.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 11:05am

Haha I laughed out loud when the dinosaur shot his beam ^^
Sure it's only one level, but it's fun like that :)
Graphics and all are good too!

Tifu says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 11:59am

Pretty funny, and I do love squishing people as a T-Rex! Did fail it several times, cos the game says I've to eat Jimi, so I just ran to the stage and tried to eat him without realising there was a different goal.

sirdorius says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:06pm

Awesome idea, and the graphics are great. But it should have a challenge factor.

I failed a lot afted I tried to eat a lot of people, ha ha.
The ending twist is great.

Hendrix, I defeat you!!!!

wintermute says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:28pm

So great but so short! I want more! I want to eat more rockstars and more audience!
Graphics: 5, it's a dinosaur!
Audio: 5, it's jimi!

Aug 28, 2013 @ 6:21am

Excellent post-mortem and excellent game

devi ever says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 6:25am

Thank you everyone! :D

@davidwparker : I've been considering getting into something like flixel... more and more and I am thinking game maker might be a poor platform to spend more time on. :/

Nick Weihs says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 6:27am

Really managed to capture Hendrix's look. Nice work.

omg, yes! I don't think I ever lived until I experienced being a time-warping psychedelic t-rex! Thank you!

Kohijin says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 6:43am

Hillarious setting and fell as you stomp through the crowd! When I found out how to finish the game, i was a bit confused though. Felt a bit random to me, but it suits the humorous tone i guess.

netmute says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:00am

I would love to play this, the art looks ace! Maybe consider a Mac version?

rujo says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:29am

@devi ever:
if you want to go on something more similar to game maker but with a web output(html5) go on "Construct 2" its a really good software.

Zerkruemler says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:34am

Cool and psychedelic. The crowd simulation and the sounds are really cool. Also the graphics and the fonts. Really good work.

flavio says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:23am

Hahaha ! This was completly psychedelic !
LSD TRex carnage !
Loved the crowd running away :)

mrspeaker says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:51am

DAMNIT! I'm a lowly Mac user and can't play this game - but it looks like the best game ever made ever. Do you have a video of it? Looks so freakin' cool. Plus... Dinosaur Jr!

H-Bomb says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:05am

Damn you psycho T-Rex, why don't you eat Jimi Hendrix once and for all?

Nice idea and realisation, but please think of the azerty keyboard users...

Typedeaf says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:11am

If you made a collection of 10-second challenges like this and put it on Steam, I'd pay upwards of a few euros for it. A few euros!

Laguna says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:21am

Such a great game! I had really fun playing this one! Just freaked out enough to make me really laugh!
Graphics are strange but set the mood perfectly.

Great psychedelic stuff :)

panurge says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:56am

Short and sweet. Playing this painted a big smile on my face from start to finish. Perfect graphics and audio. Also the most satisfying stomping and eating mechanic since Rampage! Excellent work!

Aug 28, 2013 @ 11:30am

A knew it would be awesome from the beginning) And I was right)

MidCry says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 1:15pm

nice graphic but there is no replay value ...
good job .

pereubu says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:13pm

Oh my god oh my god oh my god what have I just played to D8
friggin cool, now add more lazers and screenshake and rocket launchers and shotguns and space and unknown dimensions and aliens and else ...

PaperBlurt says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:30pm

This is an awesome idea and graphics are delightfully bright and neony!

psychomonster says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:33pm

Haha that is so funny... I like this game... :) What about a next level, where dino has to eat the Rolling Stones :D

Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:55pm

If dinosaurs_in_a_game == true then win = true end

cobrajs says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:24pm

Heh, very cool game. I have no idea how I got the rainbow beams though. Graphical style is excellent.

Gabriel says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:53pm

This is very funny! For some reason it reminded me of McPixel (which is a great thing). Loved the nonsense feel, really feels like one of those old MTV crazy ads. I definitely think you should consider expanding it a little bit, at least so that it sums up to a 20 min experience or so. I would definitely play it! :D
Congratulations, really loved it!

BenWhi says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 6:03am

Awww, this was great! The Hendrix music had me laughing :D Great graphics + play.

Aug 29, 2013 @ 9:37am

Yep, this game GETS ME.

Aug 29, 2013 @ 1:41pm

Awesome AWESOME scene, I forgot it was 2D for a little while! Wow!

And the CGA dinosaur, AMAZING! Top marks all around! You rock as hard as Mr Hendrix does

RHY3756547 says ...
Aug 30, 2013 @ 2:34am

lmao that was hilarious, awesome job! It's a bit short though, could have used some more levels like you said, and it's quite easy to win... But the graphics were spot on, and I enjoyed it while it lasted. :P

Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:16pm

Hey, I feel like I've known you for some time (some LD-Jams and stuff), but never knew about certain "details", like this :
So I guess I know nothing... that's okay, these LDs are about learning stuff... So, good luck on that INDIGOGO project, i whish you all the best!!! (Saw this in the game by ANANASBLAU, he seems like a nice guy with a beard...)

Anyway, what i wanted to say is : I didn't really get you game, but I guess that's just me, sound was cool, anyway... I always liked your music! :)

Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:46pm

Sorry for talking this much, I had a beer or two...

Liked the crazy art colors. Stomping around at the t-rex eating people was the fun part. Nice job for your first LD!

GaTechGrad says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 9:34pm

Nice pixel graphics, and the Mega Man warp in was a nice touch. At first I kept standing next to the stage and nothing would happen, but after a few tries I realized that you have to eat a certain number of people to trigger the "fatality" sequence.

Senevri says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 11:00pm

I saw you work on this on Twitch!
A lot of fun for ten seconds.

Aug 31, 2013 @ 11:13pm

Best god damn game. Love the trippy art! Also it has a dinosaur eating people. 5/5

cafeine says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 1:43am

Oh yes yes yes, very good! I'd love to see those extra levels you mention in you description.

Also, it's very cool seeing you here, I've been working on and off on a Disaster Fuzz clone (thanks a lot for sharing the schematics by the way).

Best of luck on your new creative endeavors!

awppy says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 2:43am

Didn't realize how to win the first couple times, but I got it eventually!

Sep 1, 2013 @ 3:18am

Very funny, but a bit too much simple.

JoaquinLNV says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 3:28am

Very good, but short. I'd love to play more levels of this!

Love the concept and graphics. The game crashed on my second play through though.

Jellycakes says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 9:42pm

That was pretty funny, the ending was hilarious, like the most dramatic ending i've ever experienced. The colours worked well for the play style and it was entertaining with very little interruptions. Nice work.

Ithildin says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 10:45pm

Brilliant!! I'm all for new psychedelic Dino DLCs :D

This is seriously fun! :)
Great work!

Cosr says ...
Sep 8, 2013 @ 4:24pm

Really short, but I loved it. The screen shake and the stompiness gave a pretty good feel to it. Nailed the whole being-a-psychadelic-rainbow-trex thing.

(I did notice the stompy screen shake still happens if you're eating and not moving. That I noticed this could be a sign I'm playing it too much, though.)

MrBlade says ...

DINAS SHATIN RANBOWS OUT DEM MOUFZ. Hahah. Very nice work. Nice sounds, good graphics, all around a pretty good game. (Completely original take on the theme, too!)
