Chain Reaction
« on: March 02, 2009, 01:02:23 »
OKAY, I think we can start this thing! This thread is about creating a Chain Reaction/ Rube Goldberg animation. Here are the rules:

-ONLY post a new part to the animation if you are next in line.
-If it is your turn to post, post two things: The animation (with all parts included) and a transparent PNG of your cause.
-You object must include two-three things: Something to be logically affected by the previous object, a new object to affect the next object, and perhaps one object inbetween. (I.E, Someone shoots a rocket, the rocket hits the handle of a hammer, the hammer hits a ball.)
-Your object should not be larger than 200 by 200 pixels (It can be slightly larger, but not much)
-Only animate in the area you are using and where people have already animated (you can do pretty much anything you want in those areas)
-Make sure to add your object in every previous frame (I know it's a pain, but it won't look right otherwise.)
-Try to make your object creative as possible!
-Make sure to keep the transparency as an unused color.

And... I think that's pretty much it!

I'm interested, but this is more of a forum game.
Umm... I've been gone, you see.

Each person posts one object until we reach some kind of conclusion.
Interpret?

Every person involved draws in an object onto the animation. Everybody does this until everyone has made thier part and the last person can make a final object to finish it.

I kind of thought it might, but I wasn't exactly sure, since there isn't much of a "game" element. But maybe a mod could clear this up and I could start a new topic there?

I believe what is meant to happen is that someone starts a .gif file with an object in it. The next person takes the .gif file, and adds an object. In however many frames they want, they depict the first person's object interacting with their object in some way. This repeats. (Right?)

I think this would count as a forum game if it was just a free-for-all, with everyone adding in an object whenever they want and then posting it. For this to be a collaborative project (and for it to work), you'll have to have a set group of people who want to participate, and a deadline of some sort. If you don't have any sort of restrictions, then this will just spiral off into offtopicland.

That is to say, you could have this as a forum game (with some sort of rule to make it a game- like "each object must destroy the previous object in some way" or something), where it will almost certainly be locked at some point in the future, but which might be more fun in the short term; or, you could organize this into an actual project.
good bye

I actually don't see this working as a forumgame at all. Due to the fact that you need to claim a space for making your object. If you then fail to do so, some time went by and nothing happened. That usually means the end of a topic. This will work better here if organised properly.

Yes, Goog said it exactly. So, should I put a new topic up in forumgames, or should it stay here? It would probably work better in forum games :/

Okay. In that case, if anyone is interested, please post to let me know.
