The Plurality

by nate427 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Made in Java with Slick2D.

I tried my best to learn how to make applets before this, but I didn't and I'm sorry, you'll have to download it. :C

Also, sorry about the lack of sound. :P

I'm 14, but please don't be gentle with your criticism. I love making games and want this to be a learning experience, please give me pointers.

There are two endings, try to get both!

Use the WASD keys to move, Shift to push crates, and S to open doors or hide under ledges.

If you get stuck somehow press J to reset the level.

Press K to go to the next level if you're a dirty cheater.

You need updated Java v7 to run this. Unfortunately it only works on 64bit computers, sorry about that. :C

): no mac version. looks cool but I won't be able to play it. Slick2d is cross-platform, isn't it? why is this windows only?

I'm sorry about the lack of Mac versions. Unfortunately I don't have access to my computer right now, but tomorrow I will port to Linux and Mac.

Very cool game.
I like the graphical styling, too.
Also, I really enjoyed the alternate ending. Nice message.
9/10, would play.

Kralle, did you unzip the downloaded file before executing the .jar?

It extracted a file called ""... which in turn extracted "ThePlurality"... Mac OS X Lion

+ nice mood and story
+ good graphics

- why do you have to start the game from the beginning when you get caught?
- the game froze several times and became unresponsive

Nicely done! BUT.... I dont know what to do on the last level though. If I press the switch when the eye pops out, he disapears and I have to start over from the last level. If I go out in the Air Lock... it starts over from the last level.

Can't play this game. Throw an error when launched: "could not find the main class". (Win7 x64)

Good game! Didn't like the fact you must start from beginning if Eye see you, and sometimes i got gameover even if i wasn't under the Eye's light ray.

I wish you didn't have to start all the way over when you get caught by one of the eyes. Pretty interesting concept though. Keep working on it.

Aug 27, 2012 @ 7:35pm

Really excellent atmosphere, the design works really well and the plot was nice. Fantastic job

Interesting concept, I thought the narrative really held it together. Hope you expand on this in the future, good work.

I really liked the theme / plot. You pulled it off well in the dialogue and graphics, and it was the main thing that kept me playing. I have a few nitpicky issues with the gameplay, like how the eyes don't turn around smoothly, but they aren't very significant. Nice work!

App did not run

Kind of hard to run, annoying that you have to restart the levels and the eye things went spaz every time they turned around. I liked the minimalistic graphics and general feel to the game but I found it difficult to play because I couldn't tell where the eye's beam was going to be.
