Gorilla Rescue

Disclaimer: The following game might "trigger" someone as it is a game related to an old meme, which is about Harambe

Hello ladies and gents, my team and I are actually game developer students from South East Asia with little experience in developing games. This is our first shot on Ludum Dare and hopefully it could bring a tiny bit of fun even though it would contain bugs and funky animations.

Actually this is not our initial idea, our initial idea was actually a larger scale project which obviously we failed to create but we took part of what we made for that game to create this one. Anyways lets talk about the game itself.

Its a top down isometric game where you play as a gorilla in a simulated forest cage. The Gorilla usually encounters dumb children falling down and decides to help them reach the cabin nearby where humans can pick them up. However in doing so he also violates the rules. In this game the zoo condemns the gorilla to death but his will to help the dumb children lives on. What he wants to do ? its quite simple save as many children as he can before he's sent to kingdom come so people may know him as a savior rather than a mad ape.

Graphics have this special, low-poly charm that makes the game theme feel lighter, and focuses on the gorilla in a light-hearted, gentle giant manner that makes the game much more interesting than it would be if the game was about mauling "dumb children" (as described by the author).

The music adds to the heroic feeling.

RIP Harambe

I think the instructions should be more clear. It never told me to take my dick out.
