Russian Roulette with your windows files

Recommended Posts

http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2011/09/16/filekiller-the-most-horrific-game-i-can-make/

 

The game selects 20 files from your computer at random

to win, you must delete them all

you don’t know what each file is until AFTER you’ve deleted it.

files 10 and 20 are folders, deleting them deletes everything in them

there is no undo

this game is real, and yes, it could seriously fuck up your computer/work/job/life.

 

Anyone brave enough?

thats suicide, its just like playing real Russian Roulette all by yourself, YOU CANT WIN, now, if it was a online, turn based game it would be really dramatic.

Delete some random file = you can still win

Delete some important windows file = your computer crashes, you get disconnected from the game, lose the game, and fuck up your computer....way to go dumbass

 

 

but nah, i dont have either the balls or the lack of brains to do this insanity :P

The future of gaming lies in realistic simulations of extraordinary realities

There's also the fact that it can delete entire folders. Imagine losing Program Files or Music. THE HORROR!

Of course I have my whole C drive backed up, so it's pretend horror. :lol:

You could do it on a virtual machine, and sometimes the files get saved.

This reminds me of an Invaders-style game where you had to shoot up aliens, but each alien you killed represented some random file on your computer.

Feel free to PM me about almost anything and I'll do my best to answer. :)

I would rather put some gravel in a sock, tie a knot in the end and throw it off an overpass.

 

Which is to say I am disinclined to do either that or the Ludumare thing.

This is a nice metric server. No imperial dimensions, please.

I have no desire to try this. Ever. I don't get why anyone would, actually.

Do you really think that the data on your hard disk disappears at the moment you delete it? Hell no! It just get the flag that the real data on your drive is overwritable. And on an HDD it must be at least 7 full low level rewrites to delete the real data. There is a free (yes it's totally free and opensource) software which you can recover files, partitions: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk. It works on Windows too! Of course if you damaged your windows os you probably wouldn't be able to use it from the hard drive. But, the System Rescue CD bootable disk image has it: http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page.

If you have questions about the usage of this program or any other data losing problems then send me a private message or contact me or commit suicide.

I am well aware of un-delete programs. But does it really seem like it's worth your time to do something like this for no reason?

Yeah I think I'm gonna sit this game out as well. My computers have enough problems without the extra help.

The possibility of successful data recovery surely depends upon the method(s) used to delete the original files?
