Kill: An effective little application
Linux fans will instantly recognize Kill as a clone of the handy xkill utility, because both of them let you instantly kill off a process by clicking on one of its windows. Kill is an effective little application written in AutoHotKey.

A Dark and Deadly Path

Screenshot - 12_31_2006 , 10_51_44 AM.png
A Dark and Deadly Path is a super tiny little audio game engine (can be used to make audio-only one switch games too).

This was an unofficial entry into the contest that was not eligible to win any prizes, as it was written by one of the organizers (mouser).

It works like the old Dragon's Lair LaserDisc game [1], or like those "choose your own adventure games [2], but is audio only and involves no graphics.  An author narrates a story/game is an audio story where the reader/play must make choices along the way by pressing a key on the keyboard.

The choices may have to be made rapidly in quick succession within a narrow  time window which can add an element of panic to the story - and make it a particularly appropriate device for suspense stories.

Audio files are normal .mp3 files that an author records with standard software.  The game script is an .xml file with a format to be described in a separate file.

Download: Here.
