DARWIN MUST DIE!

by mutuware - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My first game for my first Ludum Dare!
Didn't complete the finish screens, or do animations. Darwin looks like Obi Wan Kenobi.
Didn't have time to sneak in a kitten.
Still at least I got the awesome plot in there :)

Trying to do headshots is always fun. Was surprised that you can even shoot yourself. Doing a kind of old cityscape by just having different muddy colored rectangles works surprisingly well.

It was designed that you were supposed to protect an oblivious Darwin, walking home deep in thought. You cannot interfere with Darwin for worries about changing the future. But you can shoot bad guys! Didn't have time to add any texture to the buildings, but they are passable.

A bullet animation would be cool. I like the look of those clouds.

I started trying to do animation but it was a mess! So I ended up giving Darwin a trenchcoat instead of legs :)

Clouds are easy, I followed this 5min tutorial.

Had fun playing this! The controls are a little unclear at first, but seeing the crosshair makes it intuitive enough to pick up fast.
The minimalist art works well - it gets the point and mood across.

Very silly. A little clunky, but I liked it.

So it is Obi Wan walking through the canyons of Tatooine while Tusken Raiders try to shoot him :) Fun, I enjoyed having to protect a character Gun Smoke style.

I had my volume quite loud, and first reaction once the game started was to shoot the only guy on screen. Yep, that sound scared the crap out of me lol. Not bad game, gets difficult fast though! One-shot-kill is quite tough, especially when you can't quite tell which of the enemies will shoot next.
