NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED.
WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED
i’ve been trying to explain this sketch to people for years
there is literally no way to explain this sketch it’s just a thing you have to see and even then I’m not sure why it’s so funny
One of the great works of our time.
Another awesome game I’m involved in. 8 player multiplayer platforming! fantastic color action! Ballstorm!
We managed to get the award for Best Game Design at Level Up Toronto with RUNBOW, and are full steam ahead for full Steam being on the Steam store. The Greenlight is in progress and if all goes as planned we will be able to work full time on polishing up the game. That’s the dream.
Speaking of Democracy, Vote for us on Steam Greenlight and get more details on this thing I’m yelling about!
For anyone in Toronto, RUNBOW will be at Digifest May 8th to 10th, and Stage Select on June 28th. Neat!
So, as some might know, but most probably don’t, I make games. It’s sorta my thing. I’ve been at it for quite a few years now and am finally just about at the point where I can actually make a living doing it, and that’s neat!
At the moment I’m in the final hours of a Game Design post-grad program, which was a grand old time, and have been charged with making a blog post about one of the games I’ve been working on, which brings me to the topic at hand.
I’d like to talk to you about Tunnel Runner Deluxe – Director’s Cut: HD Remix 2014 – GotY Edition
So the production of Tunnel Runner was quite a bit of an adventure. The original concept was a basic, 2D infinite runner where the player could circle around a tunnel to avoid enemies.
Not particularly exciting visually, but it actually ended up being a bit fun, so my partner and I decided to run with the base concept and expand on it. The big turning point was when my partner came up with a unique twist on the formula we had. This was the concept he gave me.
We were going to build a game within a game. While the player is hurtling down the tunnel and avoiding obstacles, they were also going to be playing a game of Galaga on a screen inside their ship. If you die in the game, you die in real life. The idea was awful, and I loved it, so we did it.
However, it still felt lacking, it was still to simple, and then my partner again came through with a game changing idea for our concept. You are a pilot shipping valuable military supplies through the hypertubes in the distant year of 1999. Feeling a bit bored, you download a game into your ship’s mainframe from the webonet, but unfortunately the ROM was filled to the brim with viruses. Your computer begins corrupting, with popups showing up across your HUD, and you must make it as far as you can before your ship crashes entirely.
Pandora’s box was opened, and there was no going back. Our goal was now to make the most horrendous game we possibly could. Every addition added from this point on first originated as a joke, but eventually turned out to be hilarious and was kept in. While a bunch of animated gifs are popping up all over your screen, your commander shouts nonsense from the corner of your screen. Obnoxious music plays from the game in the center while the screen shakes every time you take a hit. The game is a cacophony of noise and light and an experiment in distraction and information overload. The game is far from done and I plan on adding many more awful mechanics, but so far it’s easily one of the most hilarious things I’ve ever been a part of.
