Ludum Dare 33 — August 21st-24th, 2015 — Theme: You are the Monster

The Most Boring Game Ever

by Romixal - Compo Entry

Huge Worm decided to get know people better, and what came of it?

Play as a big monster and destroy everything on your way.
Try to get a million points and something happens :)

Here is a list of buttons:
- The game uses WASD, Shift and mouse.
- The game used both the gamepad sticks and triggers.

P.S. I have trouble with GameMaker Garbage Collector, on some machines game uses a lots of RAM, but it's work fine for me. So leave feedback about your expirience.

just excellent, nothing else to say hahaha. not very innovative seeing as there are dozens of flash games in this online (many of which are classics) but it was a good take on the idea

Change the title now!!! You should win this Ludum dare. I don't think I have ever spent this much time on a game on ludumdare, you definitely now how to keep a person enganged. Those upgrades were sweet! Wish you had some epic music in the background tho :D

The upgrades were all fun to play around with.
I thought it was funny that the city’s population increased as more people died.
The ending was great and the amount of lag was amazing.

Pretty funny game, I liked how it just kept piling on weapons. One detail I was very fond of was the car wheels flying off. Awesome job!

Excellent take on the deathworm formula, lots of fun, plenty of ridiculous shenanigans. This would make one hell of an endless runner *hint* *hint* Wonderful job!

Classic Mouth Sound effects

Really good :) you have some bias from me as it brought back memories I used to love playing as a kid but can never find again when I look. I always wanted to re create it but have never had a good opportunity. I liked this re creation allot.

Awesome game! What an ending! It was really fun and fits well with the theme the graphics were good but the game lacked some music though.

So much fun!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 4:29pm

Fun game! I'd like to see a progress bar towards the next upgrade though =] nearly gave up before I got the first one..

great makes fun but after a while it get bored

Aug 25, 2015 @ 6:22pm

Really fun, but once you realise you can't die, you tend to stop caring and just sit at the top shooting down. Like the upgrades, the style, the humour, the absurd sounds and the way the boss killed the puny humans also. But needs a lose condition. Still great fun though

Effing Worms come to mind. ;)

The yay:
- more and more ridiculous upgrades, culminating in the grand finale against the Earth superhero
- visuals
- sound effects

The nay:
- takes some time to get started; if I didn't see the more advanced screenshots, I'd probably borequit at the first stage not expecting anything more

Overall, pretty nice silly entry.

The Most Boring Game Ever is the Best.Game.Evar! LOL! Its a simple yet well executed game. Loved the ending :)

Amazing game! Thanks for creating it!

Aug 27, 2015 @ 7:52pm

This game just caused me to get told off in a hotel, I don't know what higher praise I could give. It also broke my laptops graphics card, again though in a good way! I had a lot of fun with this. The upgrades and end boss were very cool.

(Even though our games are not similar, I like to think that your game is what happens after someone has won our game)

Nice upgrade progression! Gameplay was fun! Might want to add an aiming reticle when the guns come out as I kept losing my mouse.

Great job!

Perfect! :D

Total carnage has never been more boring. Very funny and the sounds are perfect. I couldn't stop yawning. Can't wait for the sequel ... The Least Interesting Monster in the World!

Very fun to play :)

Sep 1, 2015 @ 3:45pm

Honestly, far too slow for my taste. The game really *does* start out feeling exceptionally boring and repetitive, and takes its sweet time ramping up to the kinds of crazy shenanigans that your screenshots seem to boast. With a speedier progression curve and a bit more clarity as to when your next upgrade might arrive, this could be a great game. As it is right now, it's a sluggish start that does very little to make me want to see what comes next.

Sep 1, 2015 @ 4:59pm

Congratulations! I Won!

Pretty awesome, I was a bit disappointed with the controls at the beginning, but everything fits well.
And I didn't find the game too slow or boring, I had to do like 2 or 3 fun round trip to unlock the next upgrade, the particles/explosion everywhere made me feel powerful, and that's enough to make me play until the end :P
Awesome compo!

Sep 2, 2015 @ 3:23pm

Very great entry. Well done. :)

While not The Most Boring Game Ever, I could've used at least a bit of a challenge. Some background music would've also complimented the silly SFXs nicely. It's a solid package all in all.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
