ACTION SCIENCE DOGby bburbank - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This is a game where you are ACTION SCIENCE DOG. The SCIENTIST has made special science for you that can shrink you to SUBATOMIC WORLD. Once there, you can search for treasure and bring it back to the lab!
For this LD I wanted to purposefully challenge myself and make something really challenging; I've made platformers the last couple times but this time I wanted to do something with random dungeons, random loot, enemy AI, and CHARM. I first set out to build a roguelike but decided to instead build a dungeon crawler where the world only updates as you move (similar to a roguelike, but not bound to tiles). This would be friendly to "deciding what to do next" and would allow for a pretty decent mobile experience.
I ended up with base systems for all of that, and then only had time to implement one enemy and a couple types of loot before I ran out of time. I will definitely continue working on this! In fact I already have it running on my iPhone and iPad and hope to release it before long!
UPDATE: source code released. Has an extra, unused music track (WHICH IS WAY GOOD) and a couple scribbles from my notebook that I made while working on it (THERE IS A DRAWING OF A WALKING BURGER).
