by Shymoonesk - Jam Entry

The game is a 2D roguelike. You're a sorcerer in the Minotaur's Labyrinth. You must escape before the worms invade the Labyrinth, and then kill the Beast.

All the "win condition bugs" have been corrected, sorry but i didn't had the time before.
Good game !

The minimalism seems checked :
1 hero
1 attack
1 path
1 wall
1 boss
1 door
1 key.

Made in about 15 hours by your humble 15 years old's French servant, Simon Berna, for the Ludum Dare 26's Jam (with Game Maker : Studio).
I didn't had the time to polish all the aspects of the game (animations, sounds), but it works fine.

(the music is taken from this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVTfszppJl8)

I giggled at the soundtrack choice.
Also, It was kinda pretty bad having to start again because I was hit once, specially with that full bar of hp showing on top.

It's not normal, and I can't access to my computer right now :((((

Sadly, but I got "Invalid or Deleted File." error on MediaFire :(

Retry ! You download it during the correction :)

It is a little boring, but it works nonetheless and is quite impressive on 15 hours :D

Rather strange, my window got bigger as I progressed, and I eventually got stuck. Hilarious song, though.

Very repetitive at the beginning. Also, I picked the key, and when I touched the door, it said that I need to find a key, showed the minotaur ring image, said that I need to find a key once more (I moved), and returned an error:

FATAL ERROR in action number 1 of Step EventAtk_H for object Joueur:
Push :: Execution Error - Variable Get -1.invicible(100013, 0)
at gml_Object_Joueur_Collision_16 (line -1) - <unknown source line>

But I think it's intentional, right?

Moving around felt difficult, I kept getting stuck on ledges and invisible things. Also, a bit confused what was going on in the boss part.

Wasn't very entertaining. Controls were pretty annoying too. Two stars for effort?

You weren't suppose to move during the animation of the ring ^^
Guys, sorry for all the bugs, but didn't had the time to correct all the bugs, i'm not allowed to correct those, the jam is finished. I made an exception for the first bug because it was an uploading problem :)

@Entity2D. It's normal, for the progression : the hero is seeing more and more of the labyrinth. But you can press F11 to switch to fullscreen if you want.

@TheAwesomeProgrammer. Thanks, basically the people doesn't know what hard it is to create a working game in only 15 hours.

Invalid URL :(

Ifpetrino, I finally delete the bugs, after a bit of reflexion. Retry if you want :)

Link does not work:
Invalid or Deleted File.

The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on MediaFire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or MediaFire.

Unfortunately pressing W caused errors to happen in the game. I also have some doubts about some of the stuff here being original. Also had some weird glitches with worms and spazzing out. Good first attempt, but very rough around the edges.

The Minotaur ring draw is on this site : http://www.furnation.com/krolain/minotaur/minotaur.htm
The others draws are mine, and the song is a popular Youtube video.

I get an error message when if i press "W" right after pressing "D".
But I already can't get the song out of my head. :D

Sadly I can't play it because it seems to be no Win32-version. :(

Unplayably broken - W to move north just keeps throwing an error.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
