Get Ready for SPLODGE Hour!
« on: September 13, 2011, 07:58:12 am »
1995. I was 14 years old. C++ didn't exist, so if you wanted to make games, you had to use a sophisticated piece of custom software called "Klik 'n Play"

I made this: SPLODGE. It's probably technically the first game I ever made. Ben just dug it out- it is beyond incredible.

It's basically Super Meat Boy, but with stars and no nice graphics or polish or sound.

How to play:

Z and X to run left and right.
: and . to go up-and-down ladders, : also jumps.
# fires your UZI GUN.

Collect all the stars before the timer runs out. Passwords are displayed on the Windows bar, input via File menu.

>> DOWLOAD HERE <<

If you somehow really enjoy Splodge, please don't forget Size Five Games gratefully accepts donations. Not only would it make 15-year-old me outrageously excited to know Splodge makes money in the future, but also if this makes enough cash I'll release some of my other old, shit games.


Don't laugh.

ORIGINAL:

WOO!

*circa 1995

The title of this thread is a pun on the tagline for SPEED. Because the tagline was "Get ready for rush hour", but because my game's name was "Splodge", I cleverly changed it to "get ready for SPLODGE hour".

Because "rush" and "splodge" sound quite similar.

When The Swindle sells enough copies that I don't have to 'work' ever again, I'm totally devoting my days to a remake of Splodge.

That's his hair, before anyone asks and thinks they're clever.

I'm also trying to sort out the multi-disk KnP games, but the floppy disk drive has a weird quirk where I put in a disk and it works fine, but then if I eject it or even put in another disk the PC thinks the first disk is still in there and even still lets me use the files on it. I'm working around it now (by resetting for every new damn disk), but does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

As if to protest at my slagging it off on the internet, the PC has just this moment started refusing to restart properly, asking for "correct boot media". It's the Positive Internet of computers.

I'm going to leave it for 5 minutes and try again, that always works, right?

Dan, I think it's XP but I can't check now!

YAY NEW THING!

1995, so that would make you about 14 when this was made. Weird, we're about to get a glimpse into a man's soul from so damn long ago. This will be interesting.

I'm pretty sure I did additional design on the "Get Ready For Splodge Hour" tagline.
