klik of the month snuck up on me this month. (i thought it was next week.) but fortunately i was able to come up with a terrible game idea just in time!
i finished reading through hitmen for destiny this past week. there’s a pretty good GAME THEORY stand-off in that comic between two characters armed with pistols. one of the pistols is loaded with bullets, the other with blanks. neither character is willing to fire her gun, naturally, because there’s a fifty-fifty chance of revealing her opponent’s gun to be the lethal one. i wanted to make a game about a stand-off.
LAZER BITCHES is a game for two players. each player is a LAZER BITCH armed with a LAZER GUN. but a LAZER BITCH also has the reflexes of a JAGUAR. if one LAZER BITCH fires, the other will immediately retaliate! one player uses the arrow keys and one uses wasd, but they both share the shoot button, the spacebar. the overlapping controls make the game reminiscent of my earlier this little piggy.
thanks to radix for the flash version. get a friend and play LAZER BITCHES. that is what we call FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS.
other games this month: spindleyq collaborated with his almost-four-year-old to produce a game about a chimp riding a unicorn to a castle on pluto, and L made a variation on my knife-tossing game that replaces the knives with feathers, which is the kind of edit i’m jealous of not having thought of.
