The year is 2017, something weird is happening and the only way to stop it is...


I guess you'll just have to play to find out.


Lightly influenced by distant memories of "The Beginners Guide", this is not nearly as good.  In fact it's not even good at all, but it works, and that's something I'm irrationally proud of.


This is my first ever PyGame game, and my second ever game, so please be kind.  I would say it's a mix between whack-a-mole and and some demented maze.  All I ask is that you come with an open mind and an agile cursor.


All of the pictures are reuse with modification from Google Images, the music is original by Brett Ericson for this project (you'll get it when you hear it), and the sound effects are royalty free.


Also, I'm terribly sorry, I can't remember Brett's username and he has fled the country, please forgive me.  Nevermind found it.

Windows executable, etc.

Thank you all for your support!  I'm really doing my best to play through all of the games here, I love it!

I just tried to run the executable in a different version of Win7 and it did not execute successfully.  If you are a windows user you may need to simply run it from source, my apologies!

To do the compiling I used PyInstaller, which seemed to be working just fine, but there must have been something I've overlooked.  If anyone has tips hit me up, I'd love to hear them!

Otherwise, enjoy the new executables, and be sure to vote and award as generously as you see fit!  I'd like to do a lot to the code, but this was enough to get it working and really convey what the whole idea of the game was.  It's not supposed to be perfect, like pygame it's supposed to be pretty okay.
