The Darkness You Wander Aloneby eelfroth - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This is a short retro-acion-platformer. You are wielding the sword of swords to shoot your way though darkness and hordes of mysterious hostile creatures. Enjoy!
I spent most of the available time on that darkness/vignetting effect and on playing around with sine wave interference (which you can see in the title screen), but I think that was worth it. I'd love to add more content, a story and an actual ending - we'll see...
Also, this was not only my first Ludum Dare but this is the first game I ever released.
Controls: Arrow keys + Z + X
The tools I used:
- Game Maker 6.1
- Musagi and Audacity (sound)
- Gimp (some graphics)
This is Eelfroth, signing off. I was in!
EDIT: The problem with the cut-off edges should be fixed now. Go to the options menu or press F5 to adjust the scale.
If you have experienced low framerates, you can now press F10 to deactivate the dynamic vignetting effect and replace it with a single sprite. This damages the look and mood very badly - use it only if the game runs really slow! (press F11 to see the fps)
