And so my first LD entry comes to a close!

Play it at Also posted at Kongregate

I would describe this game as a cross between mad libs and the Spore creature creator. Emphasis on the mad libs. Everything is randomized, including the number of arms and legs and the position and rotation of everything. I didn’t get a chance to network it (I was going to hook up a database to pull in random parts from other players online), because the outside world intervened. So you’re just gonna to have to keep drawing all those arms and legs yourself.

If by some miracle you manage to create something attractive or at least entertaining with this ridiculous tool, please post screenshots! I doubt it will happen.

This game was coded from scratch in ActionScript 3, with art created in Flash and music performed with Anvil Studio. Full source code is available here. A windows executable is available here.

I made an adventure game! It’s called CZQ because I couldn’t think of a name for it. I followed the usual rules (all assets made during the 48h) which means it doesn’t have any sound, feel free to sing while you play.

It’s quite short. The graphics suck. The menu and victory screen suck a little less because I made them just now at home with my Gimp computer.

Use the arrow keys to move around; bump into stuff to interact with it; press the space bar to dismiss a dialog.

Python + pyGame: download. No binaries, if somebody wants to make some I’d be grateful.

Comments are very welcome.
