Browser Games from Notch and Broussard

Markus Persson tweets about drop, a new Unity-engine game from the Minecraft creator also known as Notch. He says this is inspired by the Ludum Dare competition, as well as Super Hexagon and the ending of Fez (thanks Polygon). Also, VG247 notes that The Road is an actual Ludum Dare entry from George Broussard formerly of 3D realms. This game was created in 48 hours, a development cycle approximately 200,000% shorter than that of Duke Nukem Forever.

A typing game? It took him 48 hours to make a typing game? Whatever.

I'm lucky to finish a polished data entry form in 48 hours following existing patterns. Making any sort of playable game in 48 hours is a feat.

I just realized blue edited the news heh.. but I want to mention that I have no idea whether that was even the right number.. I probably fucked up the math on that ;p
14 years * 365 days * 24 hours = 122k hours (someone can do the exact math if they care about rounding or leap years). Thats about 2,500 times the development time. 2500 is 250000%.

So not that far off

It's a little closer to 11 years, but close enough.
Try again.
2011 (game release) - 1997 (game announcement) = 14 years. Even if you count only the time at 3dr its 2009-1997 = 12 years.

Giggle

The Road is also approximately 200,000% better than DNF.

Tried notches game last night, only to realize I still hunt and peck. I'm very quick at it, but I still get nowhere in the game since I'm always looking down.

2000% times 48 hours = 960hrs ? ;p I think you meant 200000% = 96000 hours = 10 years
