Alone in the Dark

by Lolnut - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My first Ludum Dare game. Twas fun, and I'll expand the game after this. Story Driven game so read the text....and don't get too lonely. Is the entry a winner? Probably not...but it was still fun to make and I am going to do some serious upgrading of graphics and gameplay with my partner(graphics artists) to turn this into a really cool game later.

This game is boring, but it uses the theme well and does create a mood. Also: NYAN!

Congrats on your first Dare, Lolnut. :)

As for art: I liked your sketchy game graphics--they really add a lot of personality to the game. But the blue in-game background did kind of clashed with the title screen (which suggested space) and a sketchy hand-drawn font choice would have been perfect fit for your style.

There's not much to do in the game, but I still liked the mood. :) With a bit of polish, this could be really cool.

Thanks for the criticism! Aaron especially. I totally agree it was boring. I pulled some features I thought I couldn't get done in time, out. Ill probably continue it later....but it will be a much different game that doesn't quite capture the mood of alone, but makes things much funner.

I like the way of movement and especially your graphics. Theme is also done really well. Did you make that music yourself?
I think I'm done with the game when finding all 3 locations? (also easteregg ^^)

I loved the music.

Was a bit too easy to get lost in the left side, which is tricky to get out of.

Good idea. But this is boring because we don't have a goal.
