Impossible Escape

by PaperCutDoom - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Finally, after 28 and a half hours of game development (I mean 28 and a half hours of straight work), I am proud to present my creation :D. It is a top down shooter where your goal is to escape from a military base of an oppressive, poor government. I had lots of fun doing this and I hope all of you did too! Cheers! =)

Also, I was getting very, very tired towards the end, so a lot of my later features are hard coded rather than systematically programmed :S

I really wish I had time to implement a story line, but I'm not the most creative person in the world. I implemented a dialogue system, but never ended up getting to use it :( But I will definitely build on this game!

UPDATE: Game is exactly the same, but I changed the content system to make adding content much easier.

Couldn't quite figure out how to control the rovers... cool game otherwise!

Oh, I apologize for not making that clearer in the help menu. I probably should've made them left click to select. But anyways, it's right click to select a rover, then right click again to move it around. Also all the buttons and inventory are right click, so right click the use button to use the rover's item/weapon. Inventory is Drag 'n' drop with the right mouse button as well.

Nice little escape shmup. Can be a little unforgiving when guards start shooting right after you notice them. Collisions are a bit wonky. Crashed when I tried moving inventory.

Thanks for the constructive criticisms =), I fixed the inventory crash, I didn't upload it yet, I have to go to school in a few minutes. And yeah, I didn't want to spend too much time fiddling with the collisions during the compo. The AI definitely needs work hahaha.

Oops, disregard my previous comment; wrong tab. This game is good, but too hard for me.

Bulett Hell! I really sucked at this. The music is nice, the weapon sound rather annoying.
