collects and illustrates one man's game ideas. It's Friday Flash Fun - in your imagination! (Warning: illustrations, imagination may be NSFW.)
B3ta Bumper Book of Sick Jokes (flash)
, a youtube for pdfs. For extra weirdness listen to the mp3 (the link is at the bottom of the pdf display).
Canon Short Courses:
Learn how to wave goodbye
, chew gum
, pickup a hammer
, and perhaps most challenging, use a doorbell
Because Canon cares.
Which Way Adventure
, a weird-ass choose-your-own-adventure-type "game" with several different endings and some manticores. A few scenes are not safe for work.
The other game on the site, Hunter of Vampires
, is completely different in that it's cute, it appears to have a point, and it has a gizmo to toggle the sound off. (Both in Flash.)
McDonald's: The Videogame
. A scathing critique of lousy corporate and environmental practices, or an entertainingly complex little game about the fast food industry? A little from column A, a little from column B. Torch diseased cows with the flamethrower, corrupt politicians and environmentalists, plant genetically modified soy in what used to be the rain forests of South America, force your employees to smile all the livelong day, and try not to bankrupt the company. Be sure to read the tutorial first. (Flash.)
I'm not your friend anymore. Let's go kamping. Or bungee jumping.
-- A treasure trove
of hilariously bizarre stop-motion Flash animations featuring little blue claymation dudes.
A Case of the Crabs
, and its sequel, The Goat in the Grey Fedora
, are a couple of point-and-click black-and-white Flash games that parody the old Sam Spade-type noir films. You are Nick Bounty, private detective, and it's up to you to solve the mysteries of the counterfeit crabs and the miniature goat statue, respectively. Very, very jokey; guaranteed to induce eyerolling. Look at everything, talk to everyone, and pick up everything that's not nailed down. Hints are available, but they're crammed with jokes too.
Not safe for work
: Shoot Your Wad
(warning: Flash, porno music, and John Holmes
). "You are Johnny Wadd, the hottest private eye/cocksman in America. You need to distribute your own unique brand of justice by sharing some loving with your adoring female fans." Avoid trannies and skanks, and say no to drugs; power up with Spanish Fly.

The Faint + Viral Marketing + Indie Label Cash!
Friday Flash Fun. Addictive in a musically-manipulative way. Drop Kick the Faint
-- a Flash gadget-as-marketing ploy from the fine folks at Saddle Creek
, no doubt flush with cash from their homeboys Bright Eyes'
recent success (and critical fellating).
A band takes the piss out of themselves, we get to kick them across a parking lot in flyover country and -- huzzah! -- hear cuts from their new record over and over again. Win-win-win? This is what happens when indie labels get cash and a Flash designer
with a sense of humor, I guess.
(43 pages o' flash) is about 80% hackneyed obvious jokes, but there's some gems here and there. Which is dissapointing, because I don't get enough of the "Cleaning the Spitten Coffee off of the Monitor" workout. It also has very little to do with driving a tricycle drunk or throwing a javelin limpwristed against the Alpha Betas.
