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. Let me know what you think down below.
