A Lone Story

by MemoryLeek - Jam Entry

You get to follow Lone, the main character who finds himself all alone in the world. He starts a journey to find out what has happened and why all the people are gone.

Navigate menus with arrow keys and Enter to select.
Default in-game controls are (changeable in Settings menu):
Left - A
Right - D
Jump - Space

You can set the difficulty in the Settings menu if you find the game too easy/hard.

Notes:
Linux version requires Qt4, SDL and SDL_Mixer.

I wanted to listen to the music but I had to mute my sound because the extremely annoying death sound :(

Fun concept and story but I didn't like the gameplay :(

You can remove or rename the death sound file (resources/sound/aah.wav) to make the sound go away.

Sorry. Enter doesn't work in the menus.

Are you by any chance using a strange keyboard layout or are you pressing the Enter key on the keypad?

The keypad Enter might not work properly, but the regular one should, and have worked for everyone I sent the game to for testing.

That death sound IS annoying. Nice work on the menus, many people skip this part, but I think it makes a game much easier to digest.

Why is your game file so big? I can't imagine what in this game makes it a 27Mb download...

The download is big because we added one music track per level, plus the one in the menu. The music takes about 20MB, the rest is mostly .dll files.

The linux version does not work for me. I am on 64 bit, but I tried both versions. Terminal and ldd output here:

In the meantime, I guess I will try it in wine

I don't have Qt4 installed on my GNU/Linux but and I don't have a Windows computer at the moment. I'll try to rate it later.

We will shortly make new Linux builds using an older version of glibc, and bundling all the necessary .so-files so that everyone should be able to run it.

It should fix both of your problems olav_st and summaky. Check back in a few days, I'll post a new comment when they're available for download.

Thanks for allowing me to change difficulty...the "Normal" difficulty is impossible, but it is fun in "easy". I love the death sound and the music!

MemoryLeek says ...

We didn't make the music, it is by dtrx (http://dtrx.bandcamp.com), as stated on the Credits page. The music is licensed under Creative Commons BY-NC-SA.

The new Linux package will hopefully be done tomorrow, it will contain all necessary .so-files except Qt4.

We performed a system update on our server just now and something caused breakage and the server is no longer booting. This means that our download links will not work.

We're sorry for this and we're hoping to have the server up and running again early tomorrow.

great music, but awful death sound. easy is still hard, and I don't understand how you can possibly pass the 4th level.
And what ? flying building ? just after green hills ?

but well, nice graphics, nice music.
