Have you ever dream about travel throught existence planes? to another universes? Can you believe in your own magic galaxy?

This is the idea, no more bored menus to choose the level, now, you click play and open your ocean of levels, where you can invoke the monsters you already defeated in all those places.

These days I’m coding levels with the level editor in XML and adding new fx with meshes

this is crazy!, just one day more! markets are waiting! :)

Hello! Is anybody here? We’ve got something real good for you here!

It’s called Slapstick!

Play it in your browser here, or download a Windows executable here. Make sure you click in the game window after it loads up, otherwise it won’t receive any of your keystrokes.

Doches and I had a great time making this. This game is our take on Greek theater. You will be playing two games at the same time. The hero’s on top, the chorus is on the bottom. I made the hero, and Doches made the chorus. These are two separate games, guys. Two Ludum Dares in one pot.

WSAD = control the top game. Arrows = control the bottom game. Both games have a progression, and you win the whole conglomeration if you win either game. You cannot lose, but you will find yourself in trouble if you neglect either of the games.

This was a crazy experience for us. Lots of fun. Okay, it’s buggy and it’s rough! But that was part of the plan! These two games didn’t meet each other until a couple of short hours ago, and they are still getting to know each other!

I hope this variety of blindfolded parallel game development can be expanded into some larger events in the future, because it’s been a pleasure. We hope you will have as much fun trying to wrap your head around it as we did wrapping our arms around it.

Doches + Hamburger == Dochburger
