  • Randomised encounters with mysterious aliens.
  • Realistic binary personality generator creates both obsequiously friendly and ragingly hostile characters.

-----------------------------Old stuff-------------------------------------------

(Note: given how I've coded about half the game just this evening, I'm willing to bet I'll be spending the next four weeks adding to my procedural insult generator.)

(Additional note: no, the finished version isn't going to look any different from this.)

(Further notage: yes, I'm aware that this isn't the B-game competition.  Tongue)

Can't wait for this - I was wondering what a procedurally generated joke game would look like :D

Those aren't stars, those are the bullets that will carve a path of death through hostile aliens!

The finished version may have stars if I can come up with a good method for it.   But stars have only a tangential relation to space travel, compared to, say, compound-swears like 'motherwad'.

Right, then you need us to be able to see the bullets better. It was actually really hard to tell if it was dirt or not.

I think they're a lot easier to see when they're in motion, but I'll make a note to get some feedback on it.  Thanks.  Smiley

FWIW, I can't see them at all.  But then, my monitor is pretty dust-covered, so...

I think I will enjoy this.

Do the insults have an impact on gameplay? Shades of monkey island...

The insults will cause you to question your right to exist, possibly slowing your reactions.

"Space Cat Rocket Ship presents"?

Looking fun btw... I hope there's a "curse" button so you can swear to yourself to pass the time as you drift through the infinite blackness

Quick update: I've finally implemented the upgrade purchasing thingy.  The game is functionally complete save for a few luxury add-ons such as options/difficulty settings etc.

Awesome! No more dust Tongue

Yeah, as soon as I implemented enemy fire I realised that I couldn't see the damn bullets either.   :D

language/environment?

C++/Allegro/Fmod - Probably Windows only, I'm afraid.  And not even sure it's going to work on anyone else's computer...

Well, it's pretty much complete.  It doesn't save your options, but other than that, everything is there.  Have fun.  Don't go crazy.  Don't expect to actually be any good...
