App description: How to play: When you see a button, push it!

- Fun, with just a button


(Fun with) Just a Button (and some Friends)

*Just a Button* is a little game made for the Experimental Gameplay Project.

The rules of Experimental Gameplay Project are pretty simple:
1. Each game must be made in less than seven days,
2. Each game must be made by exactly one person
3. Each game must be based around a common theme i.e. gravity, vegetation, swarms, etc.

The theme for august 2009 was "Bare minimum" and, as you can see, the graphics of the game are close to the theme.
Having bare minimum visuals is the first step, but trying to find the bare minimum gameplay to have fun with a game seems a lot more interesting!
The idea behind Just a Button is that pushing a button is the minimal action needed to do something in 95% of video games, so why not trying to make a game where this action is the only one available?
This game explore gameplay variations around this thought. Quickly the multiplayer aspect was added to the project because hell yeah, playing games is even better with friends around!

And so here was born the idea:
Fun with Just a Button and some Friends.

Looks cool, but exactly what are the game modes and how do you play?

EDIT: Sorry, but I realised you might not be the developer. Are you?

Nope, I'm not the developer although you should be able to figure out the game modes by reading the upcoming thread and watching some of the YouTube videos

Man it sure is nice to see the experimental gameplay entries start turning up all over the internet. My idea turned out to be not fun so I went off in a sulk and made an asteroids clone instead but some of the ideas people have come up with are awesome.
