    The Legend of Marilia - Doft - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    A 3D First-Person Zelda like game. Made for my princess <3

    WASD - move
    Mouse - look
    Left Mouse Button - attack
    ESQ - pause
    M - mute music

    About the theme, throughout the game you get new items, getting stronger, which is kind of an evolution...

    I didn't really like it. I felt like it was boring.

    This is a good, complete, suspenseful dungeon crawler. Made it to the end boss on level 3 but he's tough! Theme seemed to be "piss your pants in fear" and not evolution though.

    I really enjoyed this game! The atmosphere and game play were great. My only complaint was the music, it got pretty repetitive.

    i like dongeon crawler :)
    Mouse control is maybe too sensitive, that make the game hard to play.
    cool entry :)

    @shard123 Yeah, the music was made in the last hour, and I admit it gets annoying, that's why I was sure to make a mute button (m) :)

    Liked the mood and I'm a big Zelda fan so points right there for being a 3D Zelda game :)

    Did feel like I was just getting lost though. Maybe a few clues as to where to go.

    @BumpkinRich Yeah, if I had time i would definitely add compass and map :D

    Cool gameplay. I love these retro 3D games. It reminded me of Delver or 'Judith by Terry Kavanagh'. Have to be honest in saying I didn't pick up on how this relates to Evolution.

    I really liked it, but after the second boss I got lost and gave up.

    @Crushenator it's not a very strong relation, the idea is that you get new itens and get stronger, which is a kind of evolution. This was the only idea that motivated me (making a zelda like game), I didn't want to make a game about blobs or things getting bigger since most people would also have this idea.

    @andreyin But you were so close to the end of the game :(

    The bow and the sword look and act really nicely. Then the mood is dark and scary with lots of things to jump out at you. Only problem I felt the dungeon itself a bit lacking in variation, add in some more textures then change the shape of the rooms a bit to add a few pillars and buttresses to the walls.

    Music was pretty badass. Might have used a few different textures or something between the rooms, kept doubling back without realizing. Cool stuff!

    Enjoyed it, could be something really great with some time and polished, dug the old school in 3d feel, also the dark caverns, with music provided a strong spooky atmosphere, well done!

    Aug 31, 2012 @ 6:57am

    @zakchaos Did you really like the music? Even I thought it was crappy :D I almost didn't put it in the end

    Made me think of King's Field. Good stuff. Got turned around a few times but that's not a bad thing.

    Sorry for the delay guys, finally added source.

    hahaha cool. Congrats, bro. I like the "zelda feeling" and the minecraft style.

    I liked. The puzzles are well made and the atmosphere of the game really gave me chills sometimes.
    However, I think it doesn't fit very well into the theme. You can say that you get upgrades, ok, but the character itself isn't really growing, it just getting more weapons.
    It is very easy to get lost too because all the walls look the same and you can't see very far.
    The final boss was good until he changed the fireball pattern, which turned him suddently very difficult and I gave up. Maybe I did something wrong, but that's what I think.
    Great game.

    The game itself is cool but I don't see the link with 'Evolution'. Also, you should have tried to compose a little bit longer music. (loop is too short!)

    Hi!,the music rythm base almost turn me crazy ,and why is all the scene so dark? are you using fog?, i got the advice "there is no turning back now" but i dont know what it means at all...ah, i guess that this is the entrance...good, i cant turn off the music...altought i love the sounds of the attack and this feature itself, i muted all sound. I managed to understand the simple quest was to activate all the blue diamonds, after that, 3 giants rabbits get off my soul... enought for me, thank for the experience

    You should be able to use M to mute the music... And they are not rabbits, they are rats lol

    Nicely done, I quite enjoyed the graphics, sound and general mood of the game. I'd say it needs a bit more work in level design, as right now it involves getting lost a lot and not a lot of excitement when that happens.

    Good going! Hope your princess was happy :)

    Fantastic! It was really fun to discover new rooms and items in chests that could make the trek forward possible. It does feel very complete and was fun to play through.

    I think the enemy behavior could be improved if they didn't start moving towards the player until they had line of sight, I really had to watch out when entering new rooms or rounding corners because enemies tended to hug the walls while trying to get to me before we'd even seen each other!

    Also, nice touch with the differently colored walls on different levels. Helps reinforce that it's a new level.

    Actually, I put enemies on the doorsides on purpose, to catch players by surprise. But I agree about making them stay still until they have line of sight, shouldn't be to hard to add with Unity's Raycast.

    I think the rooms are too big, but it's still a good game :)

    Nice, but you get lost too much, and I'm not sure it actually fits the theme

    Nice game, I liked the overall feel with the graphics although a little more variation would be nice, of course 48 hours is not a lot of time... :)
