    Me and some fellas from work did a 48 hour game jam last weekend for the fun of it. We ended up using Construct 2 (new to all of us) to make a game about Lamarr from scratch.



    Lamarr Goes to the Zoo

    I've also put up the Construct 2 files for download in case you want to see how we did anything.

    Enjoy!

    Hi Jeep. Why didn't you accept my friend invites? Never playing this game ever because you're an asshole.



       I like the art.

    I try to limit my friends list to people I know. I look at every invite I get and will sometimes add people if their profile looks like they're deep into the modding community and looking for help. If their profile is full of ASCII porn and lol meme groups I usually pass.

    Wow, peeps at Valve using Construct! It's a great tool, I used it to make a game a while back myself. Really awesome to see others using it as well.

    Yeah, Construct 2 was a first for all of us. I really liked it (minus some random crashes) and would use it again for a quick project like this.

    The cute artstyle slowly fades away the reality that lamarr actually wants to eat my face off

    Source 2 was just a codename for Construct 2.
    Problem solved.

    I made the mistake of hitting tab and enter which took me to a Microsoft site losing my progress. I assume they were some buttons that appear when you don't have an HTML5 browser.

    When you're on their back keep singing. They'll slow down and fly upward. Then just wait for the next set of good birds.

    I think a lot of people would be surprised at what HTML5 can do. http://mrdoob.github.com/three.js/

    welcome to the world of 15 fps demos in 2013

    Edited:

    I started working with HTML in 2004 and love it, then came with all kinds of web 2.0 goodies, had never imagined that soon will able to run linux kernel on simple html page, in some way it's great but still I preferred plugin system for 2D to use Flash, 3D Unity is better, but pushing it all in one browser... nope

    I think one day by going on some site my computer will just explode

    I like the art style, but when I tried to play this I encountered hundreds of graphical as well as game breaking bugs. After about my 8th restart I gave up, because a zookeeper somehow semi-killed me and I got no gameover screen and was only able to change the direction i was facing and leap by holding the down arrow.

    I like how I broke the music just after the birds, and each time I die it plays the same track over and over.

    But they stack on top of each other.

    Fun game though.

    And I'm stuck on the stage after the birds. Can't get past the first zoo keeper.
