Killdozer: The Video Game!

June 13th, 2008 (07:03 am)

In April, I presented Killdozer in Art.

Today, a little game I programmed in Flash ActionScript.

By the way, thanks to tannhaeuser and jathomas for their tips on improving the "electrocuting a bulldozer" animation.

And, I have to tout jathomas's conceptual artwork of a Fisher-Price Little People Construction Worker getting electrocuted (here in convenient LJ-icon size):

From Stephen Sondheim's forthcoming, KILLDOZER: THE MUSICAL!


I'm just a bulldozer, on a Pacific island.
I was brought here to build an airstrip.
My blade hit a meteorite,
Or maybe it was some ancient ruins,
I don't really have any long-term memory; I'm a bulldozer.
Anyway, something went into me, and I became sentient,
Now, I want to...

...Kill those pesky construction workers!
Killdoze them!
Killdoze them!
Oh, what's a Killdozer, to, dooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....

(Sung to the tune of ABBA's "Take A Chance On Me")

I would have thought mine was the first-ever Killdozer computer game, but I just found this Killdozer text adventure by John S. Davis, 1997 for the Commodore 64 (Commodore 64 games were still being made in 1997?).

Last week's 100 anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic caused me to revisit the Titanic cameo in my Killdozer game here.

Interesting: Marvel Comics 1961 TALES TO ASTONISH #21, "Trull the Inhuman", written by Stan Lee, drawn by Jack Kirby,

About a non-corporeal alien entering the "body" of a steam shovel on a jungle construction site.

I learned of this in this thread on the Gone and Forgottten blog.

Maybe Marvel's 1974 adaptation of KILLDOZER was penance for ripping off Theodore Sturgeon back then!
