The Hilarity Of Murder is a top-down shooting game, made with "fake" 3D, while I wait for Softwrap to get back to me about reactivating my Game Maker account. In it, you play as a guy terminally ill. With his illness, if he isn't amused, he dies. He's mildly psychopathic - he finds killing things funny. With this news, a group of hostile pink robots decided to take him down (stay with me).

You play as the guy fighting for his life. As well as looking after your health, you must make sure your guy is amused - if he isn't, he'll start losing health.

There are a number of important points of gameplay which are listed in the in-game Synopsis. There's also a control list, local highscores (couldn't do online with Lite), and resolution setting.

The game was made for the Game Jolt Axiom Contest. I was originally going to enter a game called It Only Takes A Second, but I lost Pro so couldn't continue with it.

It's open source, for anyone interested in my 3D-drawing technique. The source can be found with the downloads below.

With that being said, I hope you enjoy the game. :whistle: Let me know what you think down below.


Info

Made in: Game Maker 7.0 Lite
Download Size: 6.5mb (exe), 4.4mb (gmk) (as a result of the music)
Development Time: Around 15 hours over around 10 days


Downloads

Play/Download on Game Jolt
Play/Download on YoYo Games

I loved this game, so simple, quick, easy to start - and so fun (and addicting).

All written with lite too... Wow! :whistle:

Great to see this out of the WIP stage, so good job. I like the style of the graphics and the little gimmick of murdering for amusement is nice =P

Since I'm pleased with how far this managed to come, I will probably be rewriting this in Game Maker Pro, improving gameplay and getting online game modes like deathmatches added to it. It should also be a lot more efficient than this version.

Wow this is great! Well done! If there was one thing, is that I found it a little hard. When you've got tons of enemies, hp, ammo, different weapons, and an amusement to satisfy the game gets a little confusing. This confusion is doubled whenever you go underneath one of those bridge things - you can't see anything. But in saying that it is still a great game.

I don't doubt it's slower than d3d, but since I was stuck with Lite at the time of making it, I couldn't use real 3D for it.
