Bites are common in some areas. Often, snake handlers are bitten who are unaware that this species is able to bite while being held by the neck.
"Tomorrow, the World"
Take over the world with the power of mad science and middle management. Allocate resources, review exciting reports of your minions activities and ultimately secure your path to world domination.
"The world is not enough, but it will do for a start."
Important Gameplay Note
Since the interface misleads people, and running out of money at the start is frustrating:
We didn't get around to implementing anything that relies on the number of copies of a single weapon you carry, so buying multiple copies isn't useful.

The Lab.zip — Final Version (1.02 Mbytes on 2012/05/13)
THIS IS A TEAM ENTRY, but only I have an account on here, so I have no idea how to make this clear. The game is a platformer: You are fleeing from an evil scientist (as usual) and you have to escape his Lab, by running from left to right on the screen :) If anyone played the version I uploaded yesterday, I apologize for it. It was the wrong version with only one Level playable. Only requirement is pygame and python273. Controls: Arrow keys go move, 1 and 2 for Potions. EDIT: Added .exe. It's the first time I used py2exe, so I copied the whole dist folder. I have no Idea if all what's in there is actually needed.
— Final submission 1.1 (changed some readme stuff)
First time at PyWeek, and I'm doing it solo. I hope I can complete a game. As a mad scientist plotting a zombie attack, you first need to test things in a controlled lab and figure out what zombie breeds work best. Campaign coming soon.

An RTS set in the Girl Genius universe. Castle Heterodyne is under attack from Wulfenbach forces.

My wife didn't like "laser" so these "color streams" can be combined to create new colors using the wigits that you place that either attenuate, redirector, or combine streams. It may be more of a toy than a game, with puzzle potential given some more time to develop.

Lunatic's Arsenal is a point-and-click action game with puzzle elements. A mad scientist's creation has escaped from the lab, and it's up to you to use unorthodox methods to fight it. Can you unravel the scientist's cryptic clues before it's too late? Beating the game should take about 20 minutes, and will unlock the ability to go back and get 100%. Don't expect this to be an easy accomplishment, though! If you find the clues too difficult, check out help.txt.

Somewhere above the Antarctic Circle there is Saint Etienne lab, where an experimental machine has been built to retrieve energy from the light dispersion.
This machine is able to break light up into its spectral components by using a special dispersive prism, and then routes the "colors" into three huge rings placed on the top of the lab, collecting the released energy.
Dr. Pheega Da Keelo, the lab's leader, suddently discovers some anomalies and finds that some maintenace drones of the first ring are not working fine. So she decides to wear her special suit and enters into the ring to fix the issue.
Once her work is completed, she discover that the root cause of the issue was the evil color-blind Zontar, who is going to sent his henchmen also in the remaining two rings.
Will Pheega succeed in destroing all the villans, fight against Zontar and finally save the world from a messed up colors destiny?
