You Sunk My BidetShip! [Nov. 13th, 2006|10:15 am]

Are a New Jersey Roach on a pleasure cruise of the world. You weigh anchor in a bottle of Cognac in Paris and wake up, cruise ship and all, in a French bidet. While trying to find your way out, a small French child notices your boat and mistakes it for a toy. Can you and your ship survive long enough for the child to get bored and go away?

Welcome to the game of BIDETSHIP!

Ok, because too many of you (Noodle!) fail to applicate me just on my depravity alone, I will explain:

I am taking a dumb "game development" class. It's retarded. I thought I'd actually have to work hard, but after seeing what I've done and what others have come up with, I've started to take this class less seriously...

...far less seriously.

Our Miderm Assignment is to remake the world's first videogame SpaceWar. In addition to that, I need to make a backstory for the game.

What? Tell me the story of SpaceWar! Two rockets enter, one rocket leaves? BS!

So, I got jiggy with it and made something almost, but not quite, entirely unlike SpaceWar.

Dig it!

Awesome! Isn't that disappointing when you're worried about working harder or doing something better than the competition, only to find out that it would have been more work to try and come up with something as crappy as your competitors did?

Cool game! I want the latest version!

I know I didn't sign up for the class, but do you mind if I follow along with your assignments and try and learn something?

Go here:

Follow the guest log on crap, and look at our completely meaningless assignments...

Then you'll be as leet as me...

Actually, how I am a cut above my classmates is I use "Inkscape" instead of paint for making my art work.

This has been a leason in Inkscape for me. It makes me wish we were using Flash because that's a whole lot more useful than game-faker and I'm becoming pretty good with vector art.

It's not like my instructor knows anything about games, he's a total chump, and I feel like a chump for taking his class. Still, its transferable and it should be an easy A. We shall see.

I started giving a game history lesson in the back of class using a 2e emulator and some choice games (like Karateka, Oregon Trail 2, and some other's) and I was doing more of a service to my fellow student than the instructor.

My advice to you is get a copy of macromedia and play with it.
