The game has consequently been named Game of the Moment #380 and has won a permenant place in our hearts!

Second and third place goes to the great games Tom Artow's Escape by AndyUK and Viva la Marshmallow! by Yai7 respectively.

An honourable mention goes to Space Tyranny: Flaming Rush by BigAl0104 which was well liked by the judges but pushed down in the rankings due to being an adaptation of Space Tyranny rather than a game made from scratch for the competition.

TDC Game Making Compo: Time Trial By Fire
News posted 7th August, 2021 by Joshtek 25 Comments

Hi all, 3kliksphilip suggested that we do a game making competition so I thought I'd give it a go. So I present to you:

The basics:

  • The theme of the competition is 'Time Tral by Fire'. That is to say, the game should have a 'time trial' mode and should involve fire somehow.
  • First place prize is a special tag at The Daily Click, DC Points, and listing as a GOTM winner.
  • You can work alone or as part of a group.
  • Multiple entries per person are allowed, but we would rather see one higher quality game than multiple lower-quality entries.
  • The deadline for submitting your game is 11:59pm on Friday the 3rd of September (UTC/GMT).

Additional restrictions:

  • It should be designed to minimise the impact of randomness on the score/time so that doing well feels earned rather than merely the result of luck. This means that the time it takes to complete the game (or how long someone survives at the game) will be indicative of the skill or experience of the player rather than whether or not the randomness was on their side in this particular playthrough.
  • Any instructions on how to play the game need to be contained with the game itself, e.g. in a help section the user can access.
  • The game needs to be made in a Click product such as Clickteam Fusion, Multimedia Fusion or The Games Factory.

To be part of the competition, all you need to do is submit the game to The Daily Click and say that it is an entry for the Time Trial By Fire competition within the game's description.

Note: Because this is my first time running a TDC competition I may tweak these rules slightly after feedback, but if I do then I'll let you know.

Poll: What do you want to see at TDC?

Also feel free to suggest ideas for other things I could work on and it might make its way into a future poll!

Eagle-eyed visitors will notice that there are more recent games on the Downloads page which are not featured. These will be promoted and featured in GOTM #379.

Based on a suggestion from The_Antisony on a TDC forum post we are encouraging people to play and review old Click games. A good place to start is the TDC's Click Museum and Kliktopia's recommended games list. If you have trouble playing the games then check out my article on playing old Click games on Windows 10. If you want to review a game which is not listed at The Daily Click then you can do so using an article - in many cases you will be able to link to a version of the game at Kliktopia.

Retro reviews will be featured in future news posts as well as interviews with old-school Click developers (e.g. to learn about what they are doing now and how their Click experiences have helped them with their career) or updates and retrospectives that people post to the articles section. So, ready to take a trip down memory lane?

The story behind Zeb the TGF example game
News posted 24th April, 2021 by Joshtek 5 Comments

When I first installed The Games Factory I had great fun playing the demo games to see what was possible with the software. I have particularly fond memory for Zeb by Lee Bamber and Nolan Worthington.

What I have only just discovered is that an old demo of Zeb from August 1996 actually features a lot of behind-the-scenes information about the game. So, check out Zeb - The story behind the game and help celebrate the 25th anniversary of TGF!

Locked 7 has been... unlocked!
News posted 12th April, 2021 by Joshtek 4 Comments

In the most recent poll on how many Klik games you have purchased, sixteen said you had bought none, thirteen said 1-3, two said 4-7, two said 8-15 and four said 16+. I've bought many over the years, but one of the very first I got was Ap-Software's Locked 7 back in 1999, where I was one of around 56 people to get the it on a physical CD.

Locked 7 is an action puzzle adventure RPG with top-down fights and mazes (and a number of mini-games) made by The Daily Click's Rikus Kras (alongside Rene Kras, Jack Kwakman and Lucas Granito). The original source code was lost in around 1999.

The good news is that Rikus recently found the old source code after having been prompted by Jack Kwakman (one of the Locked 7 graphics artists) and myself via Twitter. Rikus has now re-released the game for free on the Kliktopia archive, and so we now we have a version which works on modern PCs and includes the missing movies, ending credits, and save/load feature which was omitted from the 'light' version that was released in 2006. Click here to download the full re-release of Locked 7 for free.

I've added the game to The Daily Click's Klik Museum and made it an entry at Kliktopia (which also features other Locked games and entries from Amazing Productions).
