Penguin! - Meep - Competition Entry
I had so much more planned for this but didn't have time to put everything in, so the game is pretty short unfortunately. I also didn't have time to add background music or sound effects. =(
I'm submitting this early due to having family parties to attend, otherwise it would at least have some sounds and maybe a few extra rooms.
The game basically revolves around a penguin egg that rolled away. It hatched on its own in a small cave and the baby penguin has no clue what it is. It runs into numerous animals and situations that make it ponder about itself and consequently discover its nature.
As you progress in the game, you'll be able to see the baby penguin's thoughts about the things it perceives. Instructions/controls are relayed through these thought bubbles.
The game plays as a platformer, but has the feel of a children's story book. I suppose it's like my first art game. This is my second Ludum Dare to enter, and like always, it was a great experience.
Controls (In case you miss the particular thought bubbles):
Z = Jump/Swim
X = Interact with fish (When hungry)
Arrow keys - Move left/right
F4 - Full screen
