Theme: It’s Dangerous to go Alone! Take this!
Take This Penguin - Meep - Competition Entry
You play as a young girl who sets out to climb a cold, endless mountain in the middle of an avalanche. The temperatures on the mountain are dangerously cold, so you must take a little penguin with you. Its hug will provide the necessary warmth for you to embark on your never ending vertical voyage. If you get hit by falling icicles, the penguin will fall off your back and you must retrieve it if you hope to climb further.
The platforms are randomly generated as you climb, and the icicle drop-rate increases as you get higher up the mountain. Controls can be found in-game.
Unfortunately I was again hopeless at making decent background music for the game. Hopefully the gameplay, art, and sound effects will suffice.
This is my third Ludum Dare competition. The theme was rather difficult for me, that by the time I came up with an idea I liked, there was only 22 hours left. Fortunately I was able to finish it, and I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out.
