The Giraffe-Milking Game

Okay, once again, this wasn’t what I’ve been working on making for ages. This is also not the other thing that I’ve had in the planning stages for about six months. This is instead the best giraffe-milking game that you’ll play all year:

As usual, please pass the link on to friends if you like it!

The thing that I find really annoying about making games is all the fiddly presentation stuff. I programmed this game in about three hours. It has then taken me most of my (admittedly rather slim) freetime over the past two weeks to add in all the graphics and sound effects. Maybe I’m just really inefficient at that aspect of things, but I suspect that it’s simply that it’s easier to get a prototype game working than it is to polish the prototype. You’d think that it should be the other way around really, but apparently not.

In other news, I’ve added Google Adwords onto my main site pages now, and my revenue from that is in relation to the number of clicks I get, so if there’s something that you’re interested in then please click them. Bear in mind that other businesses do pay money for those clicks, so if you’re going to click for the sake of it then please do it to a company that can afford it. Thanks!

That’s it from me. I’m getting stuck into PHP now to build a whole new game site… WoooOOOoooo! Mysterious, isn’t it? Well, it should be great when it’s done. Stay on this list for a possible beta trial when the site is beginning to function. As with most things though, don’t hold your breath; I’ve not even started coding it yet so there’s a huge amount of work to come yet.

  1. “the best giraffe-milking game that you’ll play all year”

    Pfft! I played better just last week.

  2. There’s an incorrect apostrophe on the title screen. I know you’re someone who cares about that sort of thing (which is why it hurt all the more that you did it). I really do want to play the game, and help the poor baby giraffe, but I just can’t bring myself to until this is put right. It goes against my principles. Apostrophes are our overlords, and demand respect!

    I don’t need help. It’s the rest of the world that’s wrong.

  3. Blimey, that’s the second time I’ve done that in the last few months. I wonder why I’ve been making such a basic error? Thanks for pointing it out! It’s fixed now.

  4. If it’s the second time in a few months, perhaps there’s some sort of explanation, such an illness, or possession by an apostrophe-hating life form. You should see a doctor/exorcist about it. As for me, I’m off giraffe milking!
