K2 and 1KB


I’m taking part in the game development competition of Assembly 2012 event. I sent a little prototype game named “K2“. Click here for the game web page.

This year the event is also having “1KB intro” competition. I’m a big fan of little 4KB demo things, having made a few myself as well. Those can have surprisingly lot of stuff in them. But doing something interesting in just one kilobyte is a hard challenge. For example, an executable which simply opens a window and does nothing else, and works on Windows 7, will take maybe about half of the 1 KB (when compressed with Crinkler, de facto compressor for small executables nowadays). Anyway, I have already made a little try for a production in that size category, which you will be able to see in two weeks when the event takes place.

    Kops looks interesting, it reminds me a lot of Tunnels of the Underworld:

    Sure, two games from the same genre. :) Kops was originally released back in 1996 though!
