Time–Dilation Birthday Buddies (2011 game roundup)

Writing about web page http://www.draknek.org/games/birthday2/

Created for: Hennell’s birthday
Development time: 6-8 hours maybe?
Status: Done
Play online (with a friend)

The second in the annual series of terrible games as birthday presents for my friend Hennell.

This one has online multiplayer! That must make it good, right?

The premise of the game is that you and a friend are having a race: to the future! Whoever is the oldest at the end of the game wins.

I intended to enter this as a second entry into the TIGSource Versus Competition, but I finished it too late. Which means I also finished it too late for Hennell’s birthday…

Surprisingly, the game actually provided moments of entertainment. They involved learning about xdotool and making automated clicking tools to battle Hennell’s automated clicking tools.
