There's a new competition currently running on Ginger Monkey Games called Emotion in Games: Comedy. The idea is to create a comedy game which has to either be a .exe or Flash game - so that includes Blitz!

I havent got time for this at the mo', I'm spending all my spare time working out IMAPI (For the Blitz cause!)... though, it will be interesting to see the finished games! :D

Just a quick joke:-

Q)why did the shephard get locked up?
A)He kept mountain goats!

If he got locked up, he must not have lived in England...

Hehehe, make a game in flash. It's funny already.

UPDATE - Deadline Extended:

After incredible amounts of interest in the competition the deadline has been extended by two months to 1st June 2006 - after all good comedy takes time. Also, Ginger Monkey is getting ready to announce the addition of new prizes for the winners shortly.

Well I'm not going to be entering anyhting in the contest, but I thought folks here might be interested in a somewhat amusing text adventure I did a while back in a text adventure making program:

It's fairly short, and based around a couple friends of mine.

missing a rich text ocx thing, can't get it working sswift.

God I hate how windows programs stick crap in other directories and the registries.

Here is the installer for the text adventure creator, it should install that ocx you need:

Can it be an insanely stupid game, but not exactly funny? I've got a few stupid ideas...

Ginger Monkey(Posted 2006) [#12]
You can submit whatever you like, if it makes Ginger Monkey and his panel of jungle animal judges laugh, you are in with a shot at the prizes.
