~ The Silver Nugget Re-Release! ~

Completely remade from the ground up this new release is better than ever, adding highscores and medals and improving the stability of the game. Happy shooting!


Welcome to the west cowboy! It's your task to protect the valuable silver nugget and shoot the bad guys trying to take it from you. Can you get the nugget safely where it belongs...or is the west a little too wild for you? Find out now in The Silver Nugget!

Instructions: Interactive video, get ready for interaction if the cursor flashes.

Controls: Click the mouse to shoot, press R to reload.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is one of the most ingenious mixtures of modern technology I've seen for a game. The integration of YouTube and any handheld video camera makes for easy-to-generate content, and you've built a really simple Duck Hunt-like interface to mix it with. The apparent level of interactivity is a real jump from any seemed Flash game, despite the jumps when you cut from one video to another.

The best part is that this framework has a whole new way to generate content. Instead of making entirely new art to make a new game with a different feel, now you need only shoot one day's worth of video. Dress in a leather jacket, find a dump or a construction site, and you could turn this western into a Half-Life reference without much programming.

Good thinking, and great delivery.

Thanks for your review. We indeed created this engine for future projects to come, although it won't be as easy as inserting a new video and going with it. We're trying to improve, reading all the reviews people give to see where we can make the game better.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Strange, doesn't work for me. The game doesn't even load, I just hit start and it goes to a black screen. I'm on Safari, don't know if anyone else is having this problem on the same browser, or if it's just me. Gave it a 4 because everyone else seemed to like it, and just thought I'd let you know I encountered a glitch!

Kenney responds:

Thanks for the 4 stars, no idea why it wouldn't work. Is YouTube blocked on your computer? The game streams from YouTube, so you'll need that. Try a different browser like Chrome or Firefox to see if it works.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Simply awesome, although its kinda annoying if you shoot someone -CUT- then he jumps somewhere, i know it's hard but still, and at the end if you shoot the sheriff while he's walking, it will be easy to kill him, so it's 4.5. Great game though! keep up the good work.

Kenney responds:

Yeah, that's something we can't fix because it's a technical issue with YouTube and streaming. To tell you the truth, the fact that the sheriff is so easy is because we forgot to bring our dynamite sticks to the final shooting day...he would've been carrying dynamite.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

pretty original. worked without a glitch, story is pretty good. a tad slow maybe. maybe add something else then shooting.

en gast! ik neem het jullie niet kwalijk, maar het is wel erg slecht geacteerd ^^

Kenney responds:

Good to hear :) We're not exactly George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio, we're very aware of that :)
