Download Aphrodisias

Aphrodisias is a small experiment in creating a game using nothing but a 20×20 pixel room. It’s pretty bland as far as gameplay goes, but the focus really isn’t on that. Every time you finish a level, a screenshot is taken of your 20×20 level and uploaded to the web. Each image is added to part of a bigger image, creating a sort of collaborative collage.

I’m not sure I’m 100% done with this yet, as I would like to add more options to customize the images produced, such as color selection, so updates are not entirely impossible.

Z KEY - Shoot

It's an interesting experiment. I could do without the flashing, though. To be honest, I imagine the collaborative image will just turn out looking like random static. It's cool to see my screenshot appear on that webpage. It's a nice, easy to use system for that.

Yeaaaaaaah.

Anyways, interesting concept, reminds me of the collective concious project I saw a while back...  (with the image being generated by all of the visitors)

Hrm, I don't think my image made it into the site. Nonetheless, it's a great idea! The game itself was quite an experience, though, to tell the truth, I had little idea of what was going on. Also, I don't think that the tiny representation does justice to the game screen.

Well, good work for a very interesting concept.

What is your focus?

Sound would have been nice in some ways.

If you stay in the same place and do nothing, things get pretty slow pretty quickly.

Flickering did lessen the effect of visible feedback. I'm not sure how to square the static screenshot that you put weight on with the ultra-flickery nature of the in-game experience.
