The Tourist

by lekiy - Competition Entry

After a day out taking pictures, you find yourself in a mysterious crypt.

WASD Movement, left-click to move though dialogue
hold left click and release to, attack, space to jump.

I know the game is difficult, because of the ladders :/ but the game is beatable, however short. I did not get time to add a ending so beating the boss is sufficient.

It's a bit off theme but it's a fun game nonetheless

I can't hear any sounds, some music and sound effects would be nice. Difficult but fun though, well done!

Agh! The game is more difficult and unforgiving than dark souls.

Pretty difficult, sounds would be nice, otherwise I loved the art. And one issue is the feet can be seen under the pillars :P

Nice game, the difficulty is pretty hard though. Enemies or your preojectiles seem to have too big hitboxes, as the projectiles hit them before the graphics do. The characters feed clip through the pillars. Clibing up ladders can be wonky, if you climb into a wall or ceiling, you fall off. And after dying a coupe of times and having to go through the intro againand again, I gave up :/

cool game, liked it. The ladders are a bit hard to climb, because you fall off if you go left or right on them.

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! Simple mechanics that still offered a decent amount of challenge.We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description.

Nothing personal but i hate your ladders, just climbing business.

I hate that rude one and only heart too.

I have come to like playing it despite my added hatred for one-shooting skeletons, no idea how that sorted out this way though.

Graphics look nice but take a closer look at the gameplay, this Zelda II restart feels like a punishment.

Unfortunately I cannot play your 64 bit executable on my 32 bit system.

Pretty fun game, well done with the art. there were some slight bugs such as I couldn't climb the ladder until I jumped and then climbed, anyways good job with the game :D

Pretty decent platformer.

I think it would have been better if you had followed the control conventions of similar games, I'm mainly thinking of Cave Story here. I.e. arrows to move, ZX etc to shoot/jump. I know you probably made it WASD because of the mouse aiming.

Right now I feel the movement takes a back seat because of the aiming, feels counter-intuitive. Maybe it's just me and what I'm used to :)

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Many solo participants enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
