The Lonely Arena

by recursor - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This didn't really turn out to be a game as much as it did a story. A short story. I may do a post-compo version of this and add actual game play, but for now, think of it as an interactive novel. Just be patient. Thanks for playing.

PS: There is one 'thing' you have to interact with at the beginning of the game, but that's all I'm saying.

Controls are simple:

WASD to move

Cool story (bro?), too bad it had no gameplay :(

I really liked that, but it felt a lot like the opening to a much larger game! I want to know what happens when the colony ship arrives! :)

Very well done. Love the voice-work, I really must try harder to get more into my next attempt.

I'd recommend Screen.lockCursor for this type of control, as well... when I found the button and clicked it I closed my 3DS Max project >.<

@DarkAcreJack lol. Yeah sorry about that. It didn't actually occur to me I needed to capture the cursor until after I'd already submitted :P

I just fixed the cursor capture issue since it does not affect gameplay.

Great stuff. Wish it was longer. Felt a little like half life to me.

Looked more an intro rather than a game, but i really liked it.

Wow... really cool. The audio especially was awesome, and the story was intriguing, especially the part where the commentator was describing the battle, but there was no one there. One quick note, collision between the player and the stasis pods at the end seemed to fail for me when I played it in Unity with Chrome.

The voice was very well done, although it was hard for me to understand the computerized voice. I wish it was more a game than it is now, though. I hope you find time to complete it as it is very intriguing as it is now.

Wow, I really hope you can extend this! I want to see a full game made with this concept; it would be amazing.

Awesome. Now I would like to play the same thing with a bit of puzzle.
