Anyhow, on to the game...
In 41, an asteroid is spotted approaching Earth. It seems like nothing can be done until a few scientists come up with a breakthrough. They develop a spaceship which can carry only a specified amount of people onto Mars to begin a new life (as a portable bio dome is attached to this spaceship). The famous minds gain first access to the spaceship but in order to fill the rest, they devise a game called 41. Each person in the world is credited two virtual cyborgs. They use these cyborgs to battle others and to defeat the four Conference Masters in order to gain the four medals. These medals work almost as a ticket to the ship. If you can beat the four Conference Masters, you'll be granted access to the ship. Although our protagonist, Chuck, was an orphan and under 18. Therefore he was never granted a cyborg until the very end, when everyone was given a chance to board the ship. Chuck, with a tremendous handicap already, was given only one cyborg as many had been taken and set out on his journey to gain himself a spot on the spaceship to escape the fatal asteroid moving towards Earth.
41 has an extensive game play. There are four cyborgs which Chuck can acquire throughout the game each with their own set of unique abilities. There are over 30 other cyborgs in the game which Chuck can battle who have their own abilities. 41 takes skill and wit and throughout the in-game tutorial you will learn how to play and master the game. There are as well items which can be purchased in-game to aid you in your 41 battles.
On top of this, there are many other features in the game that are not just battles. There is an Internet Cafe with a virtual computer, there is a casino, a bar, a disco club, an arcade (with a playable game - a game in a game pretty much), a cave and much more!
Over the many hours I put into 41, you will notice the extensive detail. There are many easter eggs and cheats, as well, which are put in the game. Try to find them all and attempt to complete this extensive video game.
This game has been tested by two beta testers and each person took roughly five hours not including exploring the lands, searching for little tricks, and simply battling random pedestrians, so the game in reality can total close to eight hours.
I hope you will have as much playing the game as I had making it. I am planning on releasing updates if I get enough feedback (which I hopefully will). I am also thinking of entering it in a YoyoGames contest if one with the right category should ever be created therefore I will not post it on YoyoGames (as games already on the site cannot be entered in contests).
If you have any question, feel free to ask me. Unfortunately though, I will be away the next two months and felt it absolutely necessary to post the game at the moment. Feel free to discuss questions with fellow GMC members and I will be back June 27, 2009 to answer questions and sometime at the end of July. Of course, I will be fully back August 14 so I will start taking in user input around then.
(These are just a few pictures of the game. Of course, the game is much more vast than what is shown.)

Once again I hope you enjoy the game and I want to thank everyone who helped me along the way. Make sure to post your feedback and I will try my best to answer all questions (despite the fact that I'm leaving tomorrow).
