Description
Protect your precious cheese from the onslaught of bugs by squishing them with your fingers.

How to Play
Each letter and number key on the keyboard is mapped to an area of the screen corresponding to its location on the keyboard. Pressing a key will squish all bugs currently in the area covered by that key. Protect all the cheese you can by squishing bugs before they eat it.

Tips
Accuracy doesn't count for anything. There's no such thing as a miss. Hence, each hand should be rapidly typing "areas" of the keyboard to defend.

Installation Instructions
Do you own an XBOX360?
Provided the team submits it, check in the "Creators Club Online" or the upcoming "Global Games Catalog". I'm unsure how they'll translate the keyboard controls, but I'm sure they'll figure something out.

Heavy Install - XNA 2.0 Game
Unlike the other TOJam XNA games, Debugger doesn't use the Content Pipeline. As a result, it's installation requirements are substantially less.
  1. Install DirectX 9.0c+ - XNA games need the absolute latest version. You probably have this thanks to MS Automatic Updates. Graphics card needs to support DirectX 9.0c and Shared Model 1.1.
  2. Install Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 or greater. You probably have this thanks to MS Automatic Updates.
  3. Install XNA Game Studio 2.0 redistributable.
  4. Download Game, Unzip and double click "Debugger.exe".

Technologies Used
Microsoft XNA Game Studio 2.0, Inkscape, Visual C# 2005, Fruity Loops, SVN

Fun Facts
This is the first TOJam for Team AnyKey. What a freaking great start. I believe most if not all of the team members attend McMaster University.

Jim's Corner
What starts off as bizarre typing tutor soon turns into a frantic-yet-strategic keyboard masher. I've never played a game like this before. It's really, really fun. The fantastic gameplay is complimented by some disturbingly realistic bugs. I'm not entirely sold on the old school synthesizer soundtrack and sound effects, but it does keep things lighthearted.

History
v2.0  Major improvements. New bugs added! Keyboard overlay now shows letters.

v1.0  Download Original TOJam Version

If you had the Adobe Flash Player, there'd be a cool video here.

You can hit F1 on the menu to bring up the credits menu (and the "goat on a pole").

(it's worth a look)

The team is back and going for gold at TOJam #4.
I believe they're planning on requiring 2 keyboards.
