Error fixed, you don't need to download the RTP anymore. I'm extremely sorry.

About the source code : the game is made with RPG Maker, you can open the game with this program.

I'm not sure it fits the theme too well, but I loved this game. I especially liked the part where you have to escape the castle.

I will try to remove accents when I will be back at home. (but it seems that english systems can run it)

FoxFiesta says ...

Problem solved. You can now play entirely even if your system doesn't supports accents. (é) Thanks again for your patience ;)

Really great game, complete with a great atmosphere. Feels like its got nothing to do with Evolution tho. Good work all the same! Enjoyed it thoroughly.

This looked like a cool game, and I tried it in wine via linux, but it blew up :( sorry!

Fun game. I was starting to think it was going slow then I got to the last area.

As a note, the fireball(?) projectiles shot out were really small and hard to see so I ran in to them often and had to restart. I would suggest making the projectile bigger or zooming the level in a bit more (i.e. instead of having nearly 3/4 of the viewport black, zoom the graphics so that the circle takes most of the visible area).

Thank you for your comments guys ! I really appreciate it, and I'm happy that you liked the game !
And sorry josefnpat, but I can't do anything for you. :(

Sweet! I am seriously impressed with the "script" as it were -- I know how hard it is to make some kind of coherent narrative in a game in only 48 hours.

Really Awesome Game! Possibly my favorite so far... I can clearly see you wanted the 'Castles' theme though xD

This was very good. A complete game with consistent art and gameplay. You set the mood well throughout, and the sand slowly consuming the castle was great. It felt like there was a story, even if there was no dialogue whatsoever.

The only thing you could've done better is to tie the game more into the compo theme.

One of my favourites so far :)

Great game, it takes a moment to figure out what certain things do, but then it becomes intuitive. Very nice mood, graphics and the background music really set the scene nicely. Good job.

Is that Figaro Castle from FF6? That's the first thing I though of when I seen that.

Eheh, I suck at graphics, so yeah it was my model/inspiration. I'm surprised that you recognized it ! :D

I really liked this game - the minimal graphics suited it really well! The music was pleasant too, but I think the final level could have given the player more time or been a little easier. Still, great effort :)

Nice little adventure. It felt very old school in a good way. The sounds in this game were very satisfying for some reason.

Great game, thanks for making it:)

Very good! I love exporation games like this and the mood was very nice. I didn't finish what I assume was the final level, because I couldn't beat it. I don't think the controls were tight enough to pull that kind of level design off without it getting too frustrating for the player.

Nice game. The music was great but i found the sound effets 'aggressive'. too loud maybe.
