The Sarah Palin Video Game: The Race To Success

 
This is the first game that I made with my good friend Derk the Jerk over at Man-Eating Cheeseburger. It might seem a little rough around the edges because we kept starting other games (The Separation of Church and State, Senate Finance Committee, and Whack-A-Wingnut) and only worked on this game when weren't working on one of the other games. Although the game was perhaps a bit goofy and slipshod, it helped us learn a lot about how to make a video game and to understand the advantages and the limitations of the medium.

UPDATE: From reading some of the comments, I wanted to clarify that just like all of the other games that we made (The Separation of Church and State, Senate Finance Committee, and Whack-A-Wingnut), Derk the Jerk over at Man-Eating Cheeseburger did all of the coding. I just supplied some of the artwork and stuff. He deserves all of the coding credit! :o)

Go directly to Rogue. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200 million in RNC funding.

Circus I remember that game XD, so bloody awesome but this one really rocks, you rule my dear Dr. Zaius. I miss you so much, but planning a wedding and get married is a very hard work to do (but thanks God for the chocolate cake that made everything easier)

Ya know.... the thought that struck me while I was reading the instructions was that they were too complicated..... for Sarah to play.

To Fu: I actually on supplied some of the artwork and stuff. Most of the credit should really go to Derk the Jerk over at Man-Eating Cheeseburger, who did all of the coding. :o)

Distributorcap: You can see it from her house! ;o)

Odile: Yay! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Chocolate cake will solve all problems. :o)

OKJimm: Hee hee! You are probably right! :o)

DGuzman: Actually, Derk the Jerk over at Man-Eating Cheeseburger did all of the coding. I just supplied some of the artwork and stuff. He deserves all of the credit! :o)

Ok, if you don't read the directions and press "ok" instead of "cancel" on that filter keys pop up, you've got "filter keys" and if you are me, you have to restart your computer.

I like how if she goes off off something way up in the air she doesn't splat (which was really what I was going for), but rather floats and gradually comes back down.
