So Dumb, So Great: Do Anything

By Nathan Grayson on July 20th, 2013.

Yes, that is exactly who you think it is

Do Anything is so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so dumb.

Back To Ye Olde Future: Time Travel Knight

By Nathan Grayson on July 15th, 2013.

The script isn't perfect, but it is actually pretty strong in places.

Apocalypses are just the darndest things, right? We always want them – I mean, who hasn’t wished to see humdrum societal norms crumble to ash? – but then we get them and realize, “Oh yeah, apocalypse.” The end of all things. No more wildly creative variations on the cheese sandwich or GIFs of kitties smooching puppies. Just desolation. Also kitties and puppies warring against each other in high-octane murder machines held together by flaking scrap metal and fuzzy wuzzy yarn balls. But what if you could take all of that back? What if the End was only a suggestion? Well, then you’d have Time Travel Knight, a Molyjam escapade about rewiring time and space so that all of existence doesn’t blow itself sky-high. You have 14 days. Can you stop the world from ending?

Where Is The Button For Love: Mechamom

By Nathan Grayson on July 11th, 2013.

Her name is Molly Deux, naturally.

Mechamom might just be the Surgeon Simulator of Molyjam 2013. It’s another tale of horrifically destructive ineptitude, except there’s a better reason for it this time around. See, you play as an ordinary mom who’s just trying to shepherd her daughter through this mad morass we call life, but she’s hit a bit of a snag. One day everything was normal, and the next she managed to trap herself inside a gigantic weaponized mech suit – like you do. But nothing will dissuade this newly nuclear-powered mom from doing her duty. Nothing. So hug your daughter. Go on. Do it. WHY IS THIS SO HARD FOR YOU.

Now With Real Molyneux Quotes: Molyjam 2 This Weekend

By Nathan Grayson on July 5th, 2013.

What would a Molyneux deux if a Molyneux participated in Molyjam Deux?

Game jams are majestic creatures of unbridled creativity that come in all shapes and sizes, but the original Molyjam might just have been one of the best. That, however, left Molyjam’s organizers in a bit of a pickle: How do you top ideas born of an absurdly clever Peter Molyneux parody Twitter account? But then – presumably while sitting under an acorn tree that had taught countless passersby how to love – they were struck with inspiration: why not just go back to the original source? So instead of asking “What would Molydeux,” this year’s jam actually focuses on good old Molyneux himself. His quotes, his promises, your games.
