theme: Greatest Fear

by Zillix - Competition Entry

I have a huge fear of heights. As mundane as that is, it carries over into my gaming- if I run a character too close to an edge, especially in 3D, my stomach drops. My goal was to recreate that feeling for everybody else, as best as I could.

I got my inspiration from a BBC Planet Earth episode, where I saw a mountain goat living its normal life on the sheer cliff of a mountain, and I thought about how frightening that would be for me.

I actually made the game last weekend, but I took some time to have a friend who had shown some interest at my last LD to write some music for me.

Left and right arrows to move.
X to jump
Down arrow to drop down from an edge
Hold up arrow to grab the underside of an edge

Wow, good job! I like how cohesive the entire game feels. The wind effects really annoyed me, so the controls got a little frustrating as I got higher on the mountain. The goat was cute.

Fantastic! Really well done, and incredibly difficult. I'm impressed!

Yes I did have a fear of falling while playing this - it built up pretty well! : )

Not to reiterate what increpare said above but, I felt a hollow spot in my stomach while playing your game, it felt great and that is awesome. Cheers!

Ditto what everyone else has said - also I loved the emotional impact of the introduction: a set of simple but powerful statements that really set the mood. Wonderful game!
