The Island

by DanMiller - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are a young explorer on an island trying collect the missing DNA parts scattered around it. You must observe the behaviors of different animals in order to choose which one you wish to take as a companion.

That was my original design, what I ended up with wasn't quite what that but I've really enjoyed working on it these past two days. There are only two turtles to observe and depending on which one your pick will allow you access different parts of the island.

wasd to move around
hit tab to cycle targets
hit 'T' in order to take an animal companion when next to it

Cool game, the top down view kinda takes a min to get used to but other than that it was pretty neat

+ your initial concept sounds interesting
- I only found two turtles, are there any other animals?

I found that rotating the background is a bit disorienting. It might be better if the player turned or just moved left or right instead.

Whenever I hit tab in your original version, the game screen would go completely blue. That made it quite difficult to rate. :P I did manage to get it to work once though (somehow). The game is a good start, but it could be improved if you moved faster! I felt like a turtle... and when I picked up a turtle I felt like a super turtle.

It is a cool idea and the graphics are not at all bad. Good start.
