Adrift - johnl - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Move with the arrow keys or WASD, drag the camera around with the mouse. I was hoping to get a more automatic camera sorted but you know how it is. The ending doesn't quite end properly, but other than that I am really pleased with how it works.

Made in Java using LibGDX. This was my first Ludum Dare competition and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but probably not as much as I will enjoy getting some sleep.

It's a maze game with things that shoot at you and obstacles that delay you, it kept me on my toes with running and dodging, i did eventually die, it felt like i wasn't really progressing, seeing the same graphics over and over

I liked the game, especially the sentence on the first platform: "First line of this story"

Good game, but I think the level design could be improved a little, also checkpoints, hearts and reduced difficulty would make the game more "beatble" :D

It took me a while to figure out that I had to move the screen and my little guy.
I liked the story spots.

I got lost *cries*. =) I realy enjoyed getting lost in this maze game. Having an automatic camera would be great but this is an awesome work for a 48h entry nonetheless. The hero is very cute and the graphics are neat overall.
This is a wonderfull first entry! Keep giving us games :P.

(Blatant self-advertising ahead)

Nice little game, but you might consider using Static Void Games instead of dropbox- it's designed for Java/Processing developers and comes in handy for contests like Ludum Dare. Just upload a jar and a thumbnail image, and you have a full website for your game showcasing applet, webstart, and downloadable jar version of your game. Check it out if you get a chance: http://StaticVoidGames.com
