The worst VN/KN ever created [Phase 2]

#1 Post by TrickWithAKnife » Mon Jul 09, 2012 12:17 pm

Here's the challenge: you have to create the worst possible visual or kinetic novel you can imagine. Stick figures, backgrounds of just a single colour, terrible grammar off-key music, inaccurate accents and a nonsensical storyline. These are just a few examples of the kinds of things that could make a terrible game.

Here are the rules:
  • The due date of your VN/KN is July 31st, 2012. That is 3 weeks from now.
  • The play time should be between 3 and a maximum of 10 minutes.
  • This must would preferably be the first VN/KN you have released.
  • There are no prizes, or winners. We *may* have winners (losers?) for certain categories of fail.
  • One game per person or team. If you are in 2 teams, then that is ok.
  • It should be a new game (started after this topic was made)
And yeah, I keep changing the rules. But to be honest these rules are more like guidelines.

The purpose of this event? To get those procrastinators to experience actually completing a game, without having their own quest for perfection holding them back.




And here are all the downloads. If I missed your game (and it was uploaded at least an hour ago) feel free to PM me.

Hmm, maybe the rules can be bent a bit. After all, it is meant to be for fun, and to get new creators to release a stress free game, just to get the ball rolling.

Oh, one question.
Is voice acting allowed? :twisted:

In all honesty though I think this is a good idea, although I'm probably going to make mine on the attempt of being funny more so then just throwing stuff I can come up with out there. :P

Good idea Trick! =)

I am way to much of a perfectionist to not do this. :lol:

By the way, is there any way we should tag it so people don't have heart attacks from the massive concentration of pure horribleness that is July 31st?

Not really sure. I guess that would be up to the forum admins, but there should at least be a link to each game in this topic.
