Factory Series
« on: March 30, 2011, 08:27:31 am »
Okay, I'm finally releasing the Factory Series. This combines Factory by Builderboy, Factory Theta by ztrumpet, and Factory X by me in a single program.

You start with only Factory unlocked, and once you reach high enough score in survival mode you will unlock Factory Theta, and eventually Factory X.

Controls:
Factory: 2nd to release box
Factory Theta: 2nd to rotate boxes
Factory X: 2nd to grab box and release box, Alpha to put the box on the side

I'm kinda lazy/busy right now to make a screenshot, I'll do it later :P

Here's the screenshot:
Factory:

Factory Theta:

Factory X:



Things I want to implement:
Achievements
Linked gameplay with other people

Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*

Hmm I forgot about this topic earlier. This is definitively getting news later.

Btw are you planning to upload it in the archives? I'M unsure if this should go in the staff section or the new user section, though, since it contains both programs by staff and one by you (although you used to be staff)

I'm happy this is finally released, I was worried it kinda died for good.

Great job, Builder, and especially Jsj. :D  In my option, the first and third ones are the best. :)  Thanks for updating this. ;D

Yay it has finally been released! :D Its so cool to think that this was all started cause I made that small program that long ago in stats class :P And it spawned two totally awesome games that were so much more complicated, and was eventually amassed into an epic homescreen factory pack of win!

By the way I re-tried this a few days ago and I like it a lot really, even if I'm normally not into that type of games.

I can see what you do with the last game, but what do you do (how do you play) the first two? And on the second one, what's the point of moving around?

I think you only need to use the arrow keys and enter/2ND, but I'm not sure!

I studied the screenshots for a while and now I see what you do. although I'm still confused on what the purpose of putting certain blocks in certain rows is on the original Factory.

In the original factory, the rules are simple:  If you get 3 blocks in a row that are the same type, they disappear and give you 50$.  If any of the rows overflows, you lose :)

The others are based on this, you'll understand the extras with practice.
