August 24th-27th 2012 :: Theme: Evolution

Back to Browse Entries


by Sakuyan - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Game name: LimiT

Game Controls: left right for movement/z or up to jump

This was my first actual LD48 that I'm competing. I put in a great deal of time into making this game. I hope you enjoy!

All of the sprites in this game were created within the time frame (You'll notice the decline in the quality ;_; my wrist is all swollen)

SOURCE: I used Construct2 as for the programming part of my game. So I attached the project files without the graphics

Story (Don't have to read anything below here + my English is terrible)


I hate hate hate hate hate programming. I hate it so much. Especially this weekend I couldn't even think how certain game mechanic works on Construct2. So I pitched several ideas like abilities gain after each evolution. ;_;
You can also notice the terrible animation coding. All I can do is draw so I used my 150% effort on graphics.
Again thanks for playing!

It shows that you put a lot of effort into graphics :) The concept is neat too, the final level is great :D

The best graphics I seen by now in the 48hour competition. And the game final.. is a bit scary o_o

Wonderful graphics and great job with the theme! I'm inspired by the time and effort you spent on the graphics. It's beautiful.

Aug 27, 2012 @ 4:33am

I really like this concept a lot, and yeah the ending is crazy, but definitely not in a bad way :)

The graphics are amazing! And the game is actually pretty fun! Congrats on a fun game :D

Great stuff. I let out a little "woo" of joy when I finished it! Well done

Aug 27, 2012 @ 4:58am

I will chip in too and say that the graphics are very nice. I really liked the "visibility" effect of the different evolved states.

turkwise says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 5:00am

Loving the concept and the art.

Aug 27, 2012 @ 5:00am

Probably one of the best graphics in this competition. The final segment of the game I found hilarious. Overall I enjoyed the game the entire time I played. Wished it was a bit longer but hey what can you ask for given it WAS just 48 hours.

turkwise says ...

Loving the concept and the art.

This game was wonderful! I particularly enjoyed exploring the little world this game takes place in.

nuria says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 5:56am

Great graphics! I know the frame is part of the game, but the design is a bit distracting with those gradients. It had some bugs with the jumping that prevented me from totally enjoying the game. Needs balancing, the bar runs out too fast! In general it's a nice idea, I hope you can dedicate some more time to polish it up a bit, could be an awesome game. Congrats! :D

Great game and graphics! Very cool idea. Last level is very nice.

Awesome artwork! Good job, great game!

Bemmu says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 7:46am

Hands down best graphics! Good sense of progress and goal while playing, kept me engaged until the end, which turned out to be a satisfying Space Odyssey 2001 -inspired (?) piece of art. Real game with a beginning and and, easy to figure out how to play.

Thurig says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 8:56am

Just wow... the graphics are really good! Enjoyed it.

Jezzamon says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 9:37am

INTERESTING although the ending was kinda just like "Hold left to win"


munchor says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 1:28pm

This art is PHENOMENAL!!!! The best pixel art I've ever seen on Ludum Dare, I'd give Graphics 6 if I could :P

Aug 27, 2012 @ 1:29pm

A bit easy... But so fun and good Humor. Well done

madpew says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 1:45pm

The art is really nice. To bad there's no sound. I would have liked to hear that guy/thing munching those bushes. Well done.

Nice game :)

olav_st says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 4:06pm

I like the way you integrated the theme into the gameplay. Not being able to jump was a bit confusing at first, but then I thought about the theme and I understood it :)

The graphics are great. Very impressive for 48 hours.

The game was kind of short, but there's nothing wrong with that.

Kortuga98 says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 4:52pm

Very cool graphics and concept. Nice work here.

Punga says ...

Catchy and interesting game.

Aug 27, 2012 @ 5:44pm

I love it
eating galaxies is quite fun as well - but the underlying philosophical meaning is what makes it shine
well done

nate427 says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 6:51pm

Really cool idea, carried out very well!

Aug 27, 2012 @ 7:04pm

Loved the ending

If this was facebook, I'd like all the comments

SteelRaven7 says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 8:06pm

Cute game goes freaky! Very nice indeed. I really like the small details like the fact that you have to face stuff to be able to eat it.

aschearer says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 8:13pm

Great artwork. Gameplay is a bit too monotonous. It would be interesting to see you expand on the levels to make the player work and think a bit more to evolve to the next stage. The ending was quite interesting!

Maxium says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 8:20pm

Graphics were great, loved the shading detail in the idle animation. Could use some sound though

Aug 27, 2012 @ 9:00pm

Cool but needed some audio or maybe a larger level.

gustavodort says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 9:02pm

Man, I love the graphics, I really do!

Aug 27, 2012 @ 9:03pm

Pretty interesting game! Nice art. Got a little repetetive in the beginning. End game is pretty weird ;)

LuizHGMonclar says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 9:48pm

Concept is really really good, the art is freaking awesome, 5 stars to that for sure. Had fun, but it kinda ended abruptly. It's kinda scary too :D

awesome job

This is really great, from the start to the end!

GREAT animation, nice work!!!

daydalus says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 3:22am

Really great work, love the fluid animations. At first I was a little confused by the small screen, but love how the view area opened up as the player evolved. Reminded me almost of Katamari Damaci, constantly growing till you consume the universe. Well done!

Cosmologicon says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 3:56am

Incredible graphics! An impressive amount of graphical assets. Especially good job on the last scene. Galaxies are hard to draw well in pixel art. The level design is actually very well thought out, even though there wasn't much to it.

csanyk says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 4:43am

I actually liked the animation. It was enjoyable watching the creature grow/evolve into new forms. I felt like I was stuck in the beginning area for most of the game, and then it ended abruptly, saying I had reached my limit. I wasn't really sure what to make of that.

flyingbear says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 5:26am

Excellent graphics and awesome narrative at the end. The sight-limiting mechanic was a nice touch. The 3rd stage dino-esque evolution made me laugh. He just looks so goofy!

nseward says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 6:21am

This is a game that I wanted to make but didn't have the amazing graphic skills that you have. Hats off.

Erephy says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 10:22am

Just loved your pixel art, (that first guy we play is insanely cute, I wanna pet him).
Idea and the humor at the end is amazing too.
All I can say is some bacground music.
Overall, Excellent job!

Rob says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 12:18pm

Despite the difficulties you faced with programming made in your comment youve done a really good job, congrats, very enjoyable game

eyehawk says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 12:31pm

Amazing graphics done in a short time! I didn't have any sound come through though? Also if there was enough time, more levels would have been great.

berareu says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 1:03pm

Awesome, awesome game. Sure, the gameplay starts to get a bit repetitive in the dino phase but the graphics are sooo goooooood and the ending is both scary and interesting at the same time :) The evolution of the creature is amazing! Great work!

Zed says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 2:24pm

It looks really pretty! Well done on your art. Some really weird symbolic storytelling going on, too. Needed sound, though.

keenblaze says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 2:42pm

Great art + something innovative in the gameplay = awesome game!

Aug 28, 2012 @ 3:02pm

Really nice pixel art ! Simple and colorful :)
It's really amazing for something done in only 48h (minus sleep/break) !

SimianLogic says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 4:27pm

Great art, polished platform mechanics. Impressive for such a short amount of time!

Priapus says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 4:53pm

Really like the artwork. Concept is neat and I had a lot of fun playing. To bad there's no sound.

Liked the twist.

Aug 28, 2012 @ 5:29pm

One of the best combination of fun / production value / theme interpretation, i've played so far. Very nice work!

JaJ says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 6:42pm

Amazing! I think I got as far as I could go but I was a bit sad to get the same game over screen as before. Amazing entry though!

Aug 28, 2012 @ 7:38pm

Well, that escalated quickly. Very nice game!

Nidjo123 says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 7:40pm

What a masterpiece! Graphics are great, idea is very cool. Only if it would be a bit longer! Congrats!

Jeremias says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 7:43pm

I'm really fascinated of your visual skills. As you mentioned in your intro-text, there are problems with animations. Sometimes items disappear. Another part is the gameplay: There should be a competition like avoiding gaps (to fall in) or enemies to avoid. As I said above.... I'm _really_ fascinated respective the graphics.

Do you have a blog or something like that where I can see what projects you worked or you are working?

kato9 says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 7:57pm

Really nice pixel art and animation. Gameplay is a little shallow, but the crazy ending makes up for it. Nice work!

darkshadow says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 8:09pm

Amazing graphics, the landscape is stunning. I also like how your field of view improve and your jumping ability with each stage.

sampyxis says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 8:27pm

Wow - really liked how you used the theme - great job

TravisChen says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 8:33pm

Great work, best game I've played yet!

Aug 28, 2012 @ 8:36pm

Best graphics I have seen for any 2D game so far and no other has even come close, the game itself was also very good. 5 Star Graphics! :)

wibblymat says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 9:47pm

The last bit was, uh, a slightly different tone to the rest. Very nice graphics, and well paced so it kept interesting.

CappaGames says ...

Qaterknan says ...

I like the idea of the limit. But yes, the end was kinda scary. (Btw great graphics)

Sakuyan says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 10:26pm

@Jeremias just follow me on twitter I usually dump everything there :D

and thank you everyone <33333

Aug 28, 2012 @ 11:01pm

Lovely idea and character! A bit frindy though.

avalonknight says ...
Aug 28, 2012 @ 11:12pm

That was fun. Liked how the view is limited at first, but widened out as you evolve. I was cracking up at the last portion. I think I spotted a few animation errors, mainly from a programming perspective, such as walking while eating. Just little things that didn't hinder the experience, and the art was so well done that it's forgivable.

diki says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 1:01am

Fine little katamari-like with a twist ending :) Nice!

Aug 29, 2012 @ 1:54am

Awesome job. The game may have been a little easy (you can stand next to the spawn until moving to the next "level"), but I really enjoyed it. As others have said, the ending was great and the graphics were beautiful. Great work!

tigerj says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 2:16am

I would really like to see this continued after the comp.

xhunterko says ...

It was great. Graphics are awesome! The gameplay was rather boring, but the creature grew up quickly so it was quite fun.
The end was really unexpected.

Fun, great graphics, overall best game I played here so far :)

Aug 29, 2012 @ 1:25pm

Brilliant graphics, you're so much talented in pixel-art.
Despite the game itself is a bit boring and not challenging enough I really liked the ending, which is beautiful.
Good job!

raarlac says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 4:48pm

That end is so scary hahaha loved it

Rex Peppers says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 4:49pm

Audio would have been nice, but the graphics are great. Liked how the perspective changed as the player got bigger.

FunByJohn says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 5:01pm

Haha, it felt really scary when you were eating like planets, and galaxies and in the end the universe, great mood points for that.

NateNaterson says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 5:48pm

Beautiful graphical style and animation! The ending was surprisingly creepy and thought provoking.

Starmen says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 5:51pm

Super nice work. Really amazing atmosphere, graphics were fantastic, and it's one of the few HTML5 games I've played that has felt this good. Really nice work.

NostraDamon says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 7:14pm

I love the Worlds Eater at the end!

Awesome work

Aug 29, 2012 @ 9:23pm

Great graphics, wish there was sound!

Mach60KAS says ...
Aug 29, 2012 @ 10:03pm

Wow, I adored the art style for this! The ending kinda spooked me, but I thought it was very interesting indeed. The game mechanics are a bit bland, but I think they would end up like that if you put so much effort into the graphics. :) Great Job! :D

Sergey Mohov says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 12:43am

Wow, awesome! One of the best ones I've seen so far! Good job!

Jungorend says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 2:35am

Wonderful graphics, and wonderful use of the theme. Really quite a gem, I really enjoyed playing it. The mechanics are straightforward but I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing in this case.

juaxix says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 7:27am

I liked the idea of cutting the camera and open as the char grows, the animations and graphics are cool, i miss some sounds and music.

There is no limit man.

Vennril says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 8:04am

Amazing art style and palette. And the creatures are so adorable! One of the few games I played multiple times. Love it :)

alvivar says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 12:47pm

That's the kind of ending that I like! Nice done!

Aug 30, 2012 @ 2:05pm

Nice graphics and concept, took a moment to figure out where I was supposed to be going, but managed to finish it. Damn that was one disturbing ending.

dick_claus says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 3:23pm

Nice concept, and pretty graphics.
Required a decent effort to complete.

SaintHeiser says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 3:33pm

Awesome story!!! I like the ending. It is so philosophical! It would be awesome with audio! Nice job!

matheod says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 5:31pm

Finish :p
Really funny.

Saturnyn says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 5:57pm

Nicest Sprites I have seen so far, awesome design (music is nice too :).
I got stuck in a wall once but could finish it on second try.

very well done!

infernet89 says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 6:22pm

Woha, awesome graphics! And the idea of a limited field of view was brilliant, good job!

MrDanH says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 6:39pm

Cool concept, would've been nice to see more intermediate stages before the conclusion but there's a limit to how much can be done in 48 hours :)

Puzzlem00n says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 7:09pm

Interestingly freaky. Nice job! You have a TON of comments!

gnx says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 7:34pm

An impressive journey you have here. Stellar graphics and unexpected conclusion. Really liked it all.
Gameplay there isn't much, and I find it slightly suffers from the lack of any kind of audio to heighten the moments.

Great job still.

Kinokochan says ...
Aug 30, 2012 @ 7:37pm

Beautifully designed game with very pretty art!
I loved the simple concept and the way I was encouraged to continually interact with the environment.

Pacing between each stage got a bit slow sometimes, as there was often only one thing to consume per stage. That was well worth it though, as the final stage was amazing. I was very amused!

Audio would have been nice, but your amazing art more than makes up for it.

Aug 30, 2012 @ 9:05pm

Graphics really are amazing all the way through, you should be really pleased! Gameplay is interesting and that ending was strange but in a good way. Really love the way this looks and the animation all the way through

cobrajs says ...
Aug 31, 2012 @ 1:37am

Graphics were excellent, gameplay was alright. The graphics make up for the gameplay. Interesting concept, though.

One of the best entries I've seen so far. Stuck to the theme, great art, great game play, game has a satisfying ending. Just ticks all the boxes.

odrega says ...
Sep 1, 2012 @ 10:33pm

Wow, just wow. I couldn't create graphics that good even if i had a week. though a walking animation would have been nice.

thewiseguy99 says ...
Sep 1, 2012 @ 11:57pm

That was very nicely done and was really fun for me. Good job.

Evil Cult says ...
Sep 2, 2012 @ 7:54am

Wow lots of comments here. If you are anything like me you are reading each and every one though :) Loved the graphics, they are amazing! Even without sound this game conveyed a great mood but I think music/sound could have added a lot more to it. The gameplay was a little lacking but I didn't really mind because the tone of the game kept me interested. I found the ending a bit creepy so it's quite impressive you managed to get that emotion out of me in the time you had. I think with a tiny bit more polish and introduction of sound this game could be a really special experience.

sclark39 says ...
Sep 2, 2012 @ 8:49pm

Amazing graphics. You may hate programming, but you still did an awesome job. The platforming elements feel very solid, and I love the way the creature evolves. It's a very peaceful platformer. :)

yosh says ...
Sep 2, 2012 @ 11:09pm

Amazing graphics!
It's really missing sounds and a better ending I guess ^^

angrygeometry says ...
Sep 3, 2012 @ 3:15pm

nice concept. sometimes when jumping on platforms the character would freeze and you had to move left/right to unfreeze him, but all in all, good work.

free_napalm says ...
Sep 3, 2012 @ 9:38pm

Nice work with a nice twist at the end, but also the best animation I have ever seen in a LD game.

raver says ...
Sep 4, 2012 @ 9:08am

Great animations and nice character movement physics.

Spaceoff says ...
Sep 4, 2012 @ 2:12pm

Graphically very well made, pretty fun too but short. The lack of sound is quite a disappointment and would really have gone well with the rest of the game but oh well.

fruitfly says ...
Sep 5, 2012 @ 9:25pm

the best game i have seen so far.
the pixelart is amazing! you did all this in the 48h? i am impressed!
I love the animations of the entities; espcially the bird and the tail-wacking of the dinosaur. I love the ending. I love the general fell of the controls and the mood in general. i think sound could have added a lot to this; but hey: its only 48h and you have to compromise on something if you have such high-polished pixel-art...

Haddy22 says ...
Sep 5, 2012 @ 10:36pm

super polished- great ideas went into this. I loved how as you evolved you got a bigger screen vision window as well. Nice work!

patrickgh3 says ...
Sep 5, 2012 @ 11:36pm

The graphics were nice to look at. I liked the concept. It was also nice how the level was tiny, and had a variety of unique objects, which made it interesting and fun to move around in.

kddekadenz says ...
Sep 6, 2012 @ 5:08pm

The graphics are good but not perfect. Sound is missing. The concept is very obvious (eating stuff to evolve), I don't like this.
Cool idea for the end.

zx81 says ...
Sep 6, 2012 @ 5:34pm

The game is really cool, although there's no music the game is superb because of the beatiful graphics!

jprogman says ...
Sep 7, 2012 @ 3:41am

Cool idea. I'm hoping for a bigger area to find more food so I don't have to wander around the same area constantly. Otherwise, I could see some great potential with this work.

KEFIR says ...
Sep 8, 2012 @ 4:05pm

Wow! It was cool. But half-man-god scared me a little

Cyboot says ...
Sep 12, 2012 @ 8:52pm

Really nice game!
Very nice graphics, and lovely animations.
And also fun to play, even if very easy.

You did a great Job!

axcho says ...
Sep 13, 2012 @ 5:12am

I liked the art, and I was disappointed that I could not get past the second stage, the jumping creature.

DWallin says ...
Sep 14, 2012 @ 2:21am

Nice job! The last level felt a bit out of place however and the bird kept flying the same exact path which made it too easy to just farm it. I would have tried to implement some sort of puzzle type thing to force you to work towards something while maintaining your food level instead of just focusing entirely on maxing your food intake.

Cute game. It's repetitive but I like the sense of progression and the sprites are great.
