Someone's gonna clean up with a text adventure game where you have to type in morse code.
LOL

What about a 1-key beat-mania? Instead of using different keys for different columns, just have the input scan across the columns. Smile

How 'bout one of them hot air balloon games where you hold the key to go up and let go to drop?

Yeah, its Sunday coming up, so any questions ask now.

how can a contest, which starts in a week, have a 24 hour time limit?
"I won't start beforehand-Scout's honor"? Smile

i'd say "24 hour game contest this sunday, criteria to be announced at start!"
then again maybe i'm just insane-Its been suggested to me before.

Im announcing early in the hope that anyone who cheats will be overcome with guilt and kill themselves setting an example to others.

Most importantly it gives people time to think.

I think people in this community are generally honest enough not to cheat on this sort of thing. Why would they, anyway? There aren't any prizes or anything. This is just for fun, so if someone wants to cheat themselves out of a good challenge, it's their own fault for being so stupid.

Can I have command-Q to quit in addition to the one binary control?


24 mini-contest, One binary control - aarku - Dec 13, 2005 12:08 PM

Can the one input control be remapped dynamically or must it remain constant? Space Bar for one moment, Return for another, the "T" key another...
