Underground Fortune

by Root - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Underground Fortune is my game for the theme "Beneath the surface" made in 48 hours in this competition.

It is a 3D First Person Shooter/Adventure game.

Controls are simple:
You can either use W,A,S,D or Arrows.
Everything else is in the game.

Game is made in the Game Maker: Studio engine which uses GML as a programming language.

Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy the game and please leave your opinion here in coment section.
Well, it was a journey. I will definitely participate in the next one as well.

I was afraid that this would be to easy or hard but the difficulty spike was just right

Was fairly interesting to play an fps without a mouse. Not too bad for 48 hours.

Interesting idea. Nice job on the 3D in 48 hours.

Great work on the 3d in 48 hours. It reminds me of the original Doom or Wolfenstein.

I loved this return to a older style of fps based more on exploration and the slower pace of the game added to the game. Overall a really fun title, have seen a lot worse on retail.

Unfortunately, only the floor and ceiling showed on my screen. And they were made up if weird textures. This happens a lot to me with 3D games made with Gamemaker :(

I really wanted to play!

Windows 8

Great old school feel. Pretty good base for a game for 48 hours.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all the good feedback from you guys!

And @r2d2upgrade yes, there are some problems when running GM games on Win8s, pretty hard to fix though.

Really liked the mood and the gameplay was also very nice. Oldschool-shooter feeling, very enjoyable!

I love the retro shooter feeling I get from this :)
This is a really great game! Congrats!

Would be nice to get a little more feedback when you get hit, and the bats seem to go through you when you're fighting them. Otherwise, a cool game!

well put together game! I really enjoyed it. The walking was a bit nauseating. It would be nice if he returned to some kind of normal height when not moving, instead of stopping somewhere along the swing. I especially liked the environmental details and the sound, difficulty was spot on. Good job! PS there were some spelling/grammar mistakes. BUT SERIOUSLY I LOVED IT

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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 ( 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.
