Tiktaalik's Tale

by _AM_ - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Tiktaalik's Hyper Evolving Tale is an exciting journey about survival of the fittest. Will Tiktaalik help form the future where beautiful land mammals can exist? Or will fate fiercely swing against our bravely ancient creature? Only you can determine all of our future!

To be honest, this isn't even a game. I got way too ambitious for my own skill and spent a majority of my first day only doing sprite work, of which a large majority is not featured in the game (obviously). However, I really enjoyed the event and learned a lot! I might flesh out this game because Tiktaalik is just so handsome.

Update: Added proper Windows executable.

If you need a single game to feel better about almost any other entry, here it is!

That was excellent! So moving! A tour-de-force of game development!
Seriously though, bad luck on the theme, other excuses, ect..

Nickolai51: I actually really loved the theme and went right at it. I always thought Tiktaalik was a great symbol for evolutionary progress and would make an attractive protagonist. I also always thought of myself as a horrible artist with a lack of understanding priorities. I think this game represents both of these things really well!

To future downloaders: This is not a game, there is no meaningful interactivity to speak of.

I know you were making a joke and all, but I don't really enjoy having my time wasted.

Quintans: I agree. In the second paragraph of my description, I addressed this, but it does not make up for the fact that I did not complete a game in actuality. I am terribly sorry for your lost time.

I like that you used Tiktaalik and I like your rocks. Well, more game the next LD, right?
