The gang of brave men will wake up with no clue how they got there, and will have to find out who put them there and why. Might it be a rogue? Or an evil lord? Time will tell, I think.
I'll have to work more on the item code, then I can move on to game levels, and some game play. Art needs to be done, and sound, but that's more easy to do once the rest is in place.


Oops, is all I can say. It is hard to do, and you tried hard, so I feel bad for you. Good luck next time!

Yes. All those wrong things are bad.

I think we need a place in this thread to speak in words that have lots of the things all words have so we can make sure men who are not us can see what we mean to say in our heads.

You mean "all those wrong things"? ;-)

It seems like a cheat to have a place to say more than one... Is the point not that we must make what's in our heads clear with no need to use more of those things in our words?

If a post is not clear the first time, it can be made clear in the next post, still by the rules of the game.

It can be hard... But that is the fun of it!

This is a tale of a man called Matt
Who worked all day to catch some fish
He came home to his old pet cat
To feed the cat, his most true wish

One day a man came to his door
I have some bad news, said he
Your cat shan't stay here for the more
Banned are they by great King Lee

Matt thought this King was quite the fool
He could be not so bad at work
To make so glib and bad a rule
The King, said Matt, is just a jerk

So Matt went the next day to see
This King who tried to take his friend Catherine
He asked why not let his pet be
The King had much to say on that

"These cats, they kill our birds" he said
"They kill our mice from a young age"
The birds and mice that cats made dead
Had sent the king in to a rage

"But you see" said Matt to the great King
"my friend Catherine here, he kills no more
He has not hurt a single thing
Since he's fed fish from the shore"

But how was the King to know he spoke
The truth, that the cat was so tame
Matt could make a great big joke
Of the law the King did claim

And so the King then said " I swear
No more cats in my great land!"
And Matt was sent away from there
And his friend Catherine sat in one hand

But Matt would take it not, and so
He fled the town, so he'd be free
With his good old cat in tow
They made a break on the great sea

So they lived well on the blue
They did fill their one true wish
To do the best thing that they knew:
Matt and the cat ate so much fish

(I did not check it. I hope it does not break the rules.)

fix'd. (You were so close!) You still earn a small disk of baked dough with chunks of that sweet brown stuff made from milk, beans, and that sweet stuff they get from canes or beets.

If you do not count it out, it is quite hard to post in this thread with not one loss. I do not see why it is hard, but i say it still is. When you type a small word and it turns out to be more than one, does it not bug you?

Wow. To the boy or girl whose long name starts with 6: that poem is quite a feat. Though it has one wrong word, I am still in awe. Hats off to you!

By the way, Cal San and Notch have good names for this game. I guess you could call me Plat. (And I make plats in my work, too!) Some of you, it's hard to know what I could call you so you would know I mean you.

Most of the time, folks call me "Kiz" for short.

While the verse that 6, et al., wrote up there was quite good, I find it more fun to try and fit to this game the way I speak most of the time. Though that might be due to my poor skills at verse. KF

You can call me Bond. I find that this game is more of a feat if you try to find all of your wrong words at the end of your post. It is much less hard to make sure you do this while you type the post. If the post is too long, you must check twice, as words will slip through.

Wow, that was dumb, I do not think I said one thing of use. Oh well, I guess that is fine, I had not a word to say.

This is a game. You don't need to say things of use, so it's all good.

You can call me Red, by the way.

If you say it out loud, it should be said "smow five four three." Or "Scott."

If there is a dash, then it is two words. Such as in smart-ass (or ass-goat.)

I'd give my name, but it's more than one sound in the same word. But you can call me Cam.

It breaks the rules to say what the rule of the game is. You should change that post as soon as you can, so that it does not give the rule to those that do not get it.

[edit:] Or am I wrong? [/edit]

I think I will work some more on my game this night. It's been a few years since I first made the basic game core, but now I feel ready to finish it. Last night, I chose to sign up on a nice game dev talk place, and got some nice words about it. I'm not quite sure if I will have a plot or if it will just be a plain cave romp, but I think it will be the first.

The gang of brave men will wake up with no clue how they got there, and will have to find out who put them there and why. Might it be a rogue? Or an evil lord? Time will tell, I think.
I'll have to work more on the item code, then I can move on to game levels, and some game play. Art needs to be done, and sound, but that's more easy to do once the rest is in place.

(I feel like I've lost with this post, but I can't find where. =D)


Right there, if I get how this game works.

No I do, that was a bad thing (...).
