Nobody canna save me

by kulhajs - Mini LD Entry

Hi everyone!

I made a not-game based on my life event. The time is 13:10 CET 17th July 2002, I was 10 years old, out with my cousin riding a bicycle and I got hit by a car. It was my mistake so you probably won't be able to save me, but you can at least try!

Software used:
- Paint.NET
- Bfxr
- Visual Studio 2010
- XNA Game Studio 4
- SilverSprite

You cannot change the past.

I tried to save you! Even tried to move in a zigzag manner but it didn't work =( (in the case you normalized movement vectors it could have slowed you)

For some reason now I feel sad.

The web version lagged. I saved you... but then nothing happens. Guess you can't change the past.

This is an incredible not-game! It's very personal, and a great way to embrace the challenge. The scope is tiny, and yet a lot was accomplished here. Good job.

This entry makes me think about what I am teaching about traffic to my kids.

mutuware is right. You cannot change the past.
A good interesting program. :3

That was very moving, and very good as a not game. I so dearly want to hack it to save you now...

On Opera I can save you, but not on Firefox ... ;-)

That being said, it's a very interesting idea - combining the inevitable danger with interactivity really makes it emotional.

Thank you guys for feedback ;) I'm really glad someone actually played that (:

I'm sorry it doesn't quite work in Opera but I'm glad I know about this bug and I'll pay attention to that in my next games!

Thank you Ratking for making this MiniLD! ;)

I like how it seems interactive but really isn't. I really feel like I should be able to save you! :P
