WarioWare D.I.Y. is a game-creation tool for Nintendo DS that lost online sharing functionality on May 20 due to the closure of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In the month beforehand, I organized The Last Hurrah event on Glorious Trainwrecks for creating and sharing WarioWare D.I.Y. works before it was too late.
WWDIYxGT collects the seven WarioWare D.I.Y. microgames I made for this event, all of which pay tribute to games posted on Glorious Trainwrecks in the past. It’s also intended as an entry in the makega.me “series” pageant!
You will need the DeSmuME emulator (or other DS/Wii tools and devices) to play these games.
Set-up instructions can be found below, along with a full list of included games, video previews, and more GIFs.

Worker & Parasite: The Game (2011)
Worker & Parasite is the first of three games I submitted to Klik of the Month Klub #53. It is an adaptation of the skit of the same name from The Simpsons, inspired by the Museum of Soviet Arcade Games and rhetoricstu’s Silly Family. I created the graphics in June and then sent them to rhetoricstu, who implemented the appropriately glitchy gameplay. The music is Goto80’s Jonkvrouwe as remixed by Mark Gobbin, and can be obtained here.

The Box That Ate Time (2009)
Created in two hours at age 19 for a time travel themed Popovkast. The title alludes to Richard Longhurst and the Box that Ate Time, a game I’ve never played. Mr. Podunkian (who created an excellent game called mak gam in 1 hour for this event) likes this game for some reason.
