What is WarioWare DIY?

WarioWare is a series of games on multiple Nintendo platforms. In each game, you’re put through a series of “micro-games,” which are mini games that only last a couple seconds. Part of the challenge is figuring out what you have to do in order to win.

WarioWare DIY takes this concept and puts you in control. Using a set of creation tools, you make the games. You’ll make the art, the music, and the rules/programming. You can then play your games on the DS or Wii and share them with the world.


The Twist

My idea for this LP is that you, the viewers, are going to come up with ideas for the games. Suggest an idea in this thread, and I’ll make it into a game then play it! I’m hoping to pick one or two games each week. Please keep these guidelines in mind when suggesting ideas:
  • Each game only lasts a few seconds (either the standard length shown in Episode 1, or twice that duration).
  • The only input from the player consists of tapping or not tapping on the screen. No button presses.
  • We have a limited space and number of objects to work with.
Other than that, go crazy. I’m excited to hear the ideas you come up with.


The Schedule

As I said, I will aim for making one or two games per week. These will air on Wednesdays.


The Apology

Since this is a DS game, I have no way of capturing the video besides using a video camera. I know this is usually frowned upon! Still, I feel that the video quality isn’t too bad, given the circumstances. I’m hoping that you will accept a small dip in quality in exchange for this interactive LP we can participate in together. For what it’s worth, I will be able to capture the actual gameplay of the games with a proper capture card. The game creation segment will be on camera.

With all that said, check out the first episode and start coming up with game ideas!





Link to the YouTube playlist containing all episodes!
  • Episode 1 - “Making a Let Us Play” - Suggested by Squack McQuack (I realize that I say the word “So” too much. I will work on that for next time!)
  • Episode 2 - “Goku's Pants” - Suggested by Putty (Video quality for this episode is a bit lower than usual. I'm working out a new method for filming these.)

    Putty posted:

    Squack you gotta make a microgame about Goku's Pants that is all.
  • Episode 3 - “Smash Mouth Eats the Eggs” - Suggested by CharlestonJew

    CharlestonJew posted:

    Game where you have to make Smash Mouth eat the eggs by dragging eggs from Guy Fieri's hair into Ricola's mouth. The music can be a panpipes rendition of All-Star and the background should have DocEvil crysturbating into a body pillow.
  • Episode 4 - “M'lady” - Suggested by Ripoff and others

    Ripoff posted:

    Can you make a dress-up game for a Men's Rights Activist?
  • Episode 5 - “Buy! Sell!” - Suggested by Whybird and others (big thanks to Admiral H. Curtiss and KennyMan666 for solving programming issues)

    Whybird posted:

    Make a game where you have to mine Bitcoins, but if you mine them too quickly your rig catches fire and burns your house down.

    Metal Gear Rising

    Cut A Man and then grab the delicious spine before it hits the ground! Either that or anything with Armstrong doing something- throw the giant chunk of metal at the annoying pretty cyborg man!

    A game where you help Scruff McGruff take a bite out of crime. Every time I see your name, Mr. McQuack, I can't help but think of the old Scruff McGruff commercials and substitute 'Squack McQuack' in for 'Scruff McGruff' in the jingle.

    For those of you who didn't watch TV during the very specific period of time these ran:

  • Episode 9 - “The Lady or the Tiger?” - Suggested by Lord_Ventnor

    Lord_Ventnor posted:

    Anyway, for another game idea, how about one based off of the Lady or the Tiger? Basic idea is, you have two doors, and you have to tap one. Behind one is a tiger that mauls you and makes you lose, behind the other is a lady and you win. Which door leads to the tiger would be, of course, randomized each time.

    It would be edutiantional!
  • Episode 10 - “Think About What You Did” - Suggested by Pyroi

    Pyroi posted:

    How dare you not spend every waking moment playing video games for the internet, leaving no personal time whatsoever?

    Make a game where you think about what you have done. Or do something else, it's your life.

Currently working on a remake of your Zandatsu-game. I forgot how fun this game was!
If it interests anyone, back when I was planning formats for a potential LP of the ams, one idea was to invite pixel artists, have them come up with designs then make a mini game using their assets while discussing aspects of pixel art.


Game Sketches
I've started to sketch out each game on paper before I make it. I thought you might like to see the "design process."

# 5 - "Buy! Sell!"


#6 - "Zandatsu"


#7 - "Never Again"

also a game where you play as Lowtax's wife, tap the screen to aim divorce papers directly at Lowtax.

Game Idea: Making a New Let's Play Thread

The player is on the New Thread screen about to make a thread for his upcoming LP. In order to win the microgame, he must include an opening image, a description of the game, and the list of updates to all the parts of the LP. All of which are in little hovering boxes that the player must tap on in that order before hitting the "Post" button. The lose condition other than time running out (I don't know if it can be programmed in) is if the player hits "Post" before including less than three of them or none at all.

Bad Maki! No more fantasizing about guys.

What kind of random elements can you put in? I'm thinking about having one game is either or basically, where you want to mash, or not touch a button. I don't know if that'd require you to make two different games, and use them in the same shuffle though.

They should look almost identical except for the game text that appears at the start, and the button design itself. I'm thinking either Button! or Button? for the text. Most of the design I'll leave up to you or someone else, including the button or "button", but there should be a person with 4 expressions. Something like as the default, two happy ones, and one sad one. One of the happy ones should be happier for when they are pressing the button (and they're supposed to). The sad one is for when they press the button and aren't supposed to.

For the actual game, can you set it so that you need multiple clicks on an object? I was thinking that you either click the button a bunch of times, or not at all. I think 3-5 times would work with a short game time.

I went more in detail than I expected, but maybe that's good for you? Either way, I'm looking forward to the next episode.

Dark Souls is crap compared to Dark Souls 2.

Couldn't you just use a ds emulator and capture from that? Unless there are issues emulating this particular game.

I've got a couple ideas.

1) Richard Gamingo has to get a checkmate or else he loses the mod challenge! This one would be fun because you could draw a facecam in the corner that would do silly stuff when you win.

2) It's 13th Age time, and Margo needs to vehemently disapprove of Elven culture. It really is the worst culture.

I also need to second Frolf microgames, because Frog Golf.

While I will admit I do have a slight issue with the scanlines, I'm actually liking the fact I can see you using the stylus, so I can get over that. Last time I checked, the emulated version had issues where it wouldn't save the game for some reason or it would only display a black screen. I have no idea if those problems have been fixed though. Other than that I'm looking forward to seeing how this LP will progress.

In honor of the Girl Games Megathread, I suggest you do a male version of the stereotypical girl flash games. Basically you have an image of this super dumpy guy with bad hair and complexion and by clicking on some shampoo and clothes he magically turns into the epitome of what every guy should compare himself to: Justen Beaver. No I don't actually know how to spell his last name. I before E? I don't know, and I'm proud of that fact.

Man, clicking 5 things in a row seems like a surprisingly difficult challenge for WarioWare, considering how fast the game can get after a while.

I don't think dragging is possible. Perhaps drop them from Guy Fieri's hair with good timing? The hair should rustle with each egg dropped, ideally.

Throw a fedora onto the head of a nearby brony. You have to avoid throwing it in obstacles like a dog, and the local alpha male/bully Jeff (i hate jeff). The background can be a parking lot and the music can be just a long series of grunting sounds.

If you click on that arrow you fail.

OK, this voting thing is already getting a little complicated. I'll put it to you folks - how do you want me to choose the game of the week? Do you want to have an official vote, where each person can only suggest or vote for one idea? Or do you want me to just choose what I want, keeping in mind the thread's consensus?
