Can you paint a copy of the Mona Lisa in 60 seconds? Anything over 80% is good, 85%+ very good, and 90% may be possible if you're extremely fast and accurate. While making it I posted updates to Twitter and Mastodon (click a later post to load more of thread).
A unique puzzle for each second of the day, with lots of nice touches: the background fades between day and night based on London time, there's a satisfying bonnggg sound that shakes the game when you find a long word, fireworks if you clear the grid, etc. It also features a large dictionary and generously makes sure you don't get a Q without a U next to it.
I had the thought “What if a certain falling-blocks game asked you to clear today's date?” and decided to build it… in an original, legally-safe, non-infringing way. Each day of the week has its own theme (and music), and there’s an Arcade Mode.
I've always thought Hampster Dance looked a bit like a Space Invaders game andI finally built that idea. Cuban Boys spotted my dev thread and suggested including their novelty hit single Cognoscenti vs Intelligentsia, so you get a blast of that after the first wave.
I took headline A/B tests from Upworthy’s real data and turned them into a challenging quiz. [more inside]
I surveyed 423 people about their hygiene habits after repeatedly noticing thriving online discussions of mundane things like how often you change your bed sheets. The test compares you with the results, but it's largely just a way to browse the stats and make the point that we're all ‘disgusting’ in our own ways (almost everyone gets a fairly high score).
Sing to your browser and see how high you can go compared with 27 famous singers. I've been working on this for a while, struggling to get robust cross-browser pitch detection, then eventually found a combination of hacks/libraries that does the trick.
Monkey Pop is a local 2-player game you play on a shared keyboard. You can play it right in the browser, or download a Mac or Windows version. Computer only, no mobile version, sorry. It's sort of a retro single-screen platformer in the vein of Joust or the original Mario Bros, except with monkeys and saws and brain control helmets. [more inside]
A fast-paced dungeon delving webgame inspired by Gauntlet and roguelikes. [more inside]
For several months now, my first online game, Parliamentarian, has been in a playable testing phase. Even after months of testing, it's still a little rough around the edges, but our small player base seems to enjoy it. The game could use some more players, though, which is why I turn to Metafilter Projects. Vote on bills, stand in elections, and guide your political party and state to dominance in a Dune-like science fiction setting. After signing up, you will have to wait for your state to hold new elections.
You win by catching your opponent of guard with your single attack or by quickly counter striking when your opponent attacks. This is a two player game, so bring a friend. [more inside]
