Downloadable Version of the Game

Postby weasel on Fri Feb 06, 2009 3:15 pm

Hey Folks!

I know there's been a lot of demand for a downloadable version of Fantastic Contraption. After much legal wrangling I was finally able to secure Version 1 of Fantastic Contraption for immediate download.

Happy building!












(This is the original game that Pacifist sent me, asking if I thought it would make a good game)

One of my favorite games is to see how many towers I can get on the screen at once. You have to work fast as they are inherently unstable. :3

For those that didn't read the interview in the iPhone thread, this is the game I was talking about when I said:

FC: How did you become involved with Fantastic Contraption?

I believe it was Tuesday afternoon, March 18th 2008, at 4:23 PM PST when I got involved. Approximately. I got an email from Colin saying "Click the boxes! It's worth 30 seconds of fun." Attached was a .SWF file contained what must be considered the very first stable iteration of what would eventually become Fantastic Contraption.

At 5:03 PM PST I had offered a suggestion to increase the friction. I guess I've been involved in the creation ever since - if not as a beta tester, gameplay suggestor, or level designer

Trust my luck to be on the early beta.swf mailing list I suppose.

No kidding. I'm still clueless as to how you guys got the idea of creating moving things using rods and balls from stackable rectangles. Absolutely dumbfounded...

haha, I was thinking that all my work in making FC offline for me was all gone! I can't get any more than 2 towers to stay up... oh well, I'll stick to regular FC. You guys really have come a long way!

PS: FC offline is possible, but you can only play the standard free levels. No saving or viewing contraptions, still working on that. Really nice for when my family goes to New Orleans (11 hour drive)

I would buy a downloadable game that could connect online. It would be awesome if it was full screeen and we could make levels and save them to our computer. (like the iPhone app)
