I renamed the game from deCAPSalon to hepTAPlon because the only thing better than a bad pun is an even worse one.   Well, hello there!

Latest demo

Original post here:

The plan is to make a game like the old

but instead of relentlessly smashing keys, the controls will continuously change during the events so you have to hunt around for them.

I made a quickie prototype.  Here is a screenshot...

Shown: art skillz

Q. What is the platform?
A. HTML5 using craftyjs and raphaeljs

Q. What about multi-player?
A. Thinking about recording each session to a database so that players can compete against other player's results.  Or maybe hotseat, or both, or neither

Q. Your art sucks.
A. That wasn't a question so I will answer with one.  Do any artists want to team up?

Q. What is ironic about a sports game about sports?
A. Nothing

Here's a game with randomly changing keys that might help guide you: http://nottheinternet.com/games/abastard/
It's a cool idea, interesting to see different takes on it.

Thanks for the link!  I didn't know there were any other games with this mechanic.

I threw together a quick demo of the concept.

WARNING: does not yet resemble an actual fun game yet.  You cannot win.

I hope to make 10 events out of this to compete against other players for a final total score.

10 events was a little bit too much so I am cutting it to seven.  Never fear I thought of a bad pun for a name so we are safe there.

I haven't gotten any interest for a team-up from artists so I am forging ahead with programmer art.  Here is the latest with:

  • new art
  • bigger screen
  • awesome new name!
  • race results

Here I am losing (again).  Click for a test-drive

It is still not a game but its starting to resemble one.
