Here’s the link to my final LD entry: SurfN-2-Sur5

A lone FBI agent must surf to survive.

Some helpful tips to get started:

  • When starting out you’re falling from the sky, wait until you hit the water to turn.
  • In order to have a successful landing you need to be facing in the direction you’re moving.
  • Write down your longest time/distance and try to beat it (if you’re into that).

Controls:
Arrow keys Move
Space or Enter restarts

I made the game in PixieEngine, the tools are getting better and these games keep getting easier and easier to make.

I finished the background music earlier using Aviary this afternoon and I think it’s pretty rad. Aviary was tough to get the hang of and was rough with importing loops into the larger song arranger, but once I got the basics down it was just a matter of toughing it out.

Here’s the link to the audio:

I was pretty proud of drawing the little pixel surfer guy. Originally I wanted him to have twice as many rotations as well as subtle animations, but you know combinatorics…
