As the month draws to a close, it’s time for the Best of the Net roundup! This month’s theme was Unexperimental Shooter – which some took to heart in a hearty homage to the much beloved genre. Others of you used, shall I say, more subversive methods – making games which were in fact experimental (shame, shame!) – be they in theme, art, or even gameplay.
Thanks to everyone who participated and if anymore of the internet’s vast realm of inhabitants wish to participate in this month’s round, you still have a week!
Ready, steady, go!
Kill as many zombies as you can using a host of weapons carelessly strewn about the level. An experiment in facial recognition – try and remember what weapons hurt which zombies.
