Let nothing wear you down

by Ditto - Mini LD Entry

Let nothing wear you down is an experiment in storytelling from my side. In it, you take a walk together with a boy.

I have included two Windows downloads. One which requires you to already have XNA installed on your computer, and one that installs the whole deal.

I've programmed the whole thing in C# using XNA, graphics are done in PS with mouse(my arm hurts) and music is made by my dear friend Isidor.

Link to Isidors Soundcloud,
He makes awesome stuff, check him out : )

Hope you "enjoy", let nothing wear you down.

I really love this kind of audiovisual style. Kinda like the salad fingers! It creates this nice mood. I would play it more if it was longer :).

SamoojaMies: Thanks a lot, I guess I took a bit of inspiration from Salad Fingers, eventhough I didn't think of it much at the time.. I am quite proud of the visuals, so thanks! :D

I agree; The visuals are really wonderful and they complemented the atmosphere, really don't have anything negative to say...aside from it being too short :p

Yeah very cool aesthetic, love the scratchy animations. And the music fit well with it. Nice work!

Very moody. You really convey an emotion. Very good choice of music as well.
You should buy an Wacom Tablet though, It's no use busting you arm for this. There's more games to make!

Thank you once again. I must say, I got a tablet a week ago. Lets just say I would have been able to add about 3x more content if I had the tablet during miniLD, drawing this stuff with a mouse is a paaain.. xD Well, next time I suppose!
