GDC12 Pirate Kart games


Thanks to the efforts of ExciteMike (and the incredible Glorious Trainwrecks!), over 1000 games were collected for a “GDC Pirate Kart”! The concept is simple: getting to GDC is expensive, and putting up a booth is even more expensive. Making a pirate kart that would be displayed on the GDC floor enabled a conference presence to any game that anyone could think to make.

I ended up submitting three games to the Kart, and I wanted to present them here.

There’s no sound and no win condition, yet it provides about 3 minutes of solid entertainment. This was also an entry for SoS’s “nanoLD”, though it took me longer than 48 minutes to make it.

As part of the Pirate Kart kickstarter campaign to raise enough money to set up the booth, one of the rewards was to have any idea made into a game by the Pirate Kart people. I chose the raciest idea I could find on the list:

My wife is an ANTI-circumcision activist and I would like a game made for her about protecting foreskins. (Seriously.)

The result is the game “Forskin Defender”. This was built in Construct Classic, using original graphics and sounds! The music was ripped from

Windows only. Original version / censored version.

Realistic GDC Lecture Session Simulator

This game was created in a few hours while waiting in line for “Indie Game: The Movie” at the conference itself. Along with a bunch of other amazing indies, we held an impromptu jam in the queue. This was made in Processing and mspaint (and
