This is absolutely serious.
This is a call for tiny games by anyone who would like to contribute.
The theme of the game should be:
A CHICKEN CROSSING A ROAD.
Do anything you like with this theme. A first-person "you are the
chicken" approach is fine; a game set in a cafe where a pretentious grad
student compares road-crossing chickens to the plight of the proletariat
in post-Marxist society is also fine. All I ask is that the chicken
crossing the road should be readily apparent (please, no games about
something entirely unrelated except for the fact that >XYZZY produces the
response, "A hollow voice says, 'Why did the chicken cross the road? To
get to the other side!'") and that the game be short. If you spend more
than an afternoon or two on it, you're missing the point.
Be imaginative. Be innovative. Make a game that people will have fun
playing. And send your entries to:
The deadline is June 15, 1998. The entries, along with any supporting
documentation (walkthroughs, etc.), will be verified, organized, and
uploaded to GMD shortly thereafter.
Thanks. We realize you have a choice of comps when you program, and we
appreciate you comping with us.
