my friend andi was really excited that nasa was hosting a game jam on her birthday. she wanted to rope a bunch of us in to making games with her thirtieth birthday – then she found out that you had to book tickets months in advance. BULLSHIT. not to be deterred, she had a bunch of friends over to my place for a KICKED OUT OF NASA GAME JAM. (they’re still here. it’s still going on.)
one of the suggested themes was “excluded from space.” the worst idea i could think of was a game that bans the player from using the spacebar. but that wasn’t very interesting to me, until i thought of the possibility of imposing the spacebar ban on the player’s normal computer habits.
you can download FORBIDDEN SPACE here. when you run it, it’ll create a small window that will stay on your desktop. DON’T minimize it – but feel free to slide it into the corner. then use your computer as normal. but DON’T touch the spacebar!
liz is over, so i had her do the sound. happy birthday, andi!
