I don't want to say that this is a "One hit wonder" game, but I thought it was pretty funny that this was the month's theme. At the start of the month, Nomoon, Clang and I started working on a game for #monstermash2014. We wanted to make a Megaman game where you play as a boss (a "monstrous" robot master). This goal was quickly subverted by our overwhelming enthusiasm for The Protomen, and Megaman X in particular. We realized that, while trying to make out mash entry, we had succesfully implemented a megaman couch-battler (x-box controllers and all!). So, basically it was inspired by music we are passionate about! I'm not making a separate thread for this project, because it isn't really "for" the One Hit Wonder pagent, but I just thought I'd drop this here so people could say "oh ha ha, cool".
We would like to use a 16-bit version of The Protomen's "vengence" from their first album for the background music, but we haven't found one (there is an 8-bit version ToT;;). If you look closely you'll see that the truck in the background has been sprayed with "Hope Rides Alone", which is a reference to The Protomen as well. Our main characters (we now have two) are named Rock and Opera, and they are both playable. We'll probably also have Protoman himself, and a fourth character who will be based on the likeness of one of my fav indie devs (if we can get her permission!).
Here is a video of us playing 2-player. It crashes at the end because this is a replay and there is code in their that crashes replays (you need that). The blue one is Rock and the teal one is Opera.
