Well damn, the time slipped away from me. Facepalm I wus going to do an artsy game on drugs... Maybe for a late entry.
Haha, I actually did an artsy game on drugs, but I didn't get around to adding a title and ending screen so I never submitted it.
"On drugs" can have two meanings. Which one do you guys mean?

The other one, I guess? (On the other hand, I was going to make an artsy game on sex, medication and rock and roll. No I wasn't.)

I dunno about Cactus, but mine was going to be a "morals" game, where you could rehabilitate, or get much worse.

I'm about half way through the games and I can see already that this is going to be tough to narrow down - I've got seven games in my "vote" folder. Nice work, guys! Coffee

I was mostly going for educational, so I did a preachy anti-drug propaganda game, except disguised as an art game (no in-game text). I'll wrap it up and release it one day.

Some interesting entries this round, though it can often feel like statements overrun capturing play. Then again, these things always end up with a gem or two, so it's great seeming what people come up with.

Maybe I'll finish that entry I was planning sometime later just to get that out there.

Anywhoo. Good show chaps!  Gentleman

I really HATE to vote for game maker games, because i don't see a real good work behind
I find this comment a bit biased. Oh well, everybody got an opinion.

In my case, i qualify games for their fun factor, if they're fun, then they work, for people like me that doesn't have the time to focus on learning a programming language in depth i can put myself in the place of people who use game maker.

I really HATE to vote for game maker games, because i don't see a real good work behind, like the roguelike competitions. But There's almost only that soo...

It's going to be Edmund, I Love You 2 and Dildo Tank : The First Squirt.
I believe Dildo Tank was made with Game Maker.  I'm not at all trying to deter you from voting for it (it's an original, fun game), but I would just like to point that out.

And I Love You 2 was made in Constructm which is even easier to use.

Lesson: It's stupid to judge a game with the software used to make it.

I really HATE to vote for C++ games, because most programmers act like 16 year olds who think 100 lines of C++ and SFML is better than simply taking 2 seconds in Game Maker. But There's almost only that soo...

It's going to be I HAVE CANDY GET IN THE VAN and Super Cock Blockers on my list

P.S. Just joking around.  But, you can see how silly saying language X is bad because of an impression that games made in X aren't your cup of tea.

My compo entry is over 10,000 lines of code. Sad

Pssh, I think it takes just as much time to make a game using either system.  Sure you can rough draft a lot faster in GM, but all the time it takes to polish rules and consider different angles in gameplay design is the same on both sides.  C++ forces me to slow the process down to a near halt, making me consider very carefully how everything exactly fits together.

I don't know what it's like for GM projects, but in C++, once the main game is done, the polish isn't far behind.  At least this is what it's been like for me.  Admittedly I'm very meticulous in the first place.

That comment kind of irked me too. Our game was C++ and Lua and I was actually kind of proud of the engine even if the game was a bit lacking. But I guess that's the point: it's a stupid comment to make and there are obviously plenty of entries that are 'hardcore' or whatever.

I don't get this discussion, is this a Programming competition or a game making competition (Is there a verb to game making? It ought to be one)?

Without programming (and yes GM is a form of it), you wouldn't have a game.  You would have a movie.

So... um... yeah, I would say it's a pretty big driving part of the whole experience.

I get that, what I mean is:

I think what matter is the final product, not the way you made it... Construct made games for instance can be made with minimal programming skills, and be awesome.

Boo to programming snobbery. Tools like GameMaker allow non-programmers to make games, and shame the "real" programmers with all the extra creativity they bring.

Um...you're still programming though.  Sorry, I'm arguing semantics.  I didn't realize there was this whole culture of "snobby programmers" vs. "Game Maker guys that hate snobby programmers".

I gotta get out more often.  Let it be known I'm not taking a side.  I never do.  I'm too busy making games. Wink
