No More Sweden

So what can I say? It was just great. Lots of cool people, lots of good games made and lots of really interesting discussions about creativity, business and how to combine hobby with work. It was kind of comforting to hear that there were others worrying about the same things I do, at least to a certain extent. I think about it a lot though, like is it really possible to make games for money and still keep it fun? Maybe making games full time is a terrible choice?

Anyway, you can read about the party at Erik Svedäng’s blog. Here’s the game I made together with Mårten Brüggemann of Pieces Interactive (music by Erik Sjöstrand) for the Game Compo.

You Have To Fertilize The Egg (Download)

Warning! Fantastic (but potentially offensive) music by Erik Sjöstrand!

I wrote the physics during the competition which was a really silly decision. It resulted in crappy physics and lots of wasted time that could have made the game more playable. Oh well, it’s an “art game”! It’s not meant to be “playable”, bah!

    Dear Ove,
    If you e-mail me your address I might be
    able to send you a refund.
    Did you recognize the (very obscure) reference
    in the art statement?
    Your friend, Kian

    What you probably did, is you downloaded the game, opened the ZIP. file and copied the game to your desktop. But thats not enough. you also need to copy the song to your desktop, otherwise the song won’t play. I hope it helped a lot.

    WHY IS THERE A PASSWORD NEEDED ):

  16. Posted November 8, 2012 at 13:43 | Permalink

    Savannah: There shouldn’t be? When are you asked for a password? When going to the download link? When trying to open the zip?

  20. Posted July 14, 2013 at 21:49 | Permalink

    Yes, it seems like that was the case :/ I’ve contacted Media Fire about it…

    Thanks for the mirror Thomas! I have also uploaded the game to this domain and edited the original post with the new link. Media Fire apparently considered the game to violate their terms of service by being obscene and/or pornographic. I don’t think it’s either.

    I downloaded both the song and the game from the links that Thomas posted, but there’s so sound when I play the game:/Is it supposed to be like that?

  26. Posted July 30, 2013 at 11:35 | Permalink

    Hi Michaela! No there should be a song playing :/ Did you extract the zip before launching the game? Also, maybe try the link in the post?

    Is it possible to find the song for download?

  28. Posted July 31, 2013 at 10:00 | Permalink

    Hey Morgan! Sure, you can just grab the .mp3 from the game archive. Hit the “(Download)” link in the post.
