Side-scrolling platformer. The "Web 2.0" of games
Glarf is the working title of a video game. It is a platformer like Mario or MegaMan or Contra, but that’s not the Big Idea. The Big Idea is user created content, radical trust, randomness, and play. Weapon crafting is a key example. Glarf can shoot things - fireballs, bouncy globs, liquids. When Glarf consumes a powerup, the things he shoots inherit some of that powerup’s properties, by being selective in what you eat or throw away, you can create weapons with powerful and interesting effects.
