#YOLOSWAG

by Sanguine - Mini LD 40 Entry

#YOLOSWAG is a game about pop culture on Twitter. It uses tweets from a hashtag that you choose to generate waves of enemies. For example, if a tweet contains a lot of characters, more enemies will be spawned. There will also be bigger enemies if the user uses a lot of hashtags and uppercase letters.

-WASD to move
-LMB button to shoot.

Made in GameMaker8.1 with a (buggy) JSON parser, httpdll2 and the Twitter API

Really awesome idea. The current trending topic makes it really difficult however, haha.

That's a cool use of the theme! Simple and clean graphics. The audio fits well with the game. Great job!

Fun but rather hard, you might want to include more asteroid-sytle controls as an option...
Who's that talking in the background ?!? :)
