Swappy Dungeon

by ShadowBrain - Mini LD 59 Entry

Swappy Dungeon!
A simple generated dungeon game, with swappable tilesheets!
I always enjoy these MiniLDs. So relaxed.

The background music was taken off of, I did not create it, it was made by "Rolemusic" on there.
Any sound effects I made using BFXR.

Total time spent on game: 24,5 hours.

The tilesheet you choose affects difficulty and visuals of the entire game, so choose wisely! :D
(You can pick a new one after each run.)

Controls are basic and straightforward:
WASD or Arrowkeys - Move
Space or Mouse1 - Attack

360 Controller:
LStick or Dpad - Move
A or Y - Attack

Controls are rebindable in the input tab in the window you get when you first start the game.

Enjoy! I had a lot of fun making this.

It looks awesome! but unfortunately it doesn't run on Mac, it says it can't be opened.

But it does work under wine. Great game! I wish some of the random sprites had trasparency, those who don't look aweful.

Yeah I can't fix that, will have a look at it when I get the package of spritesheets & website source after the jam ends, then I can sort it a bit :)

mac build comes in as a .rar and when i renamed to .app, it says i can't open powerPC applications. :( this looks really cool

The .app is inside a folder inside the .rar, you should be able to open it I think, I've never had anyone tell me .rar wasn't open-able on macs :O

sweet! I had a bunch of unfair kinda things where I was killed right as I entered a new room, but not a big deal I don't think.

with the mac not executing, you gotta go into the MacOS folder and chmod the executable to be executable (chmod 755 or whatever). I think that zips tend to handle file permissions a bit better cross platform, but I am not 100% sure.

Okay. it turns out i didn't have an application to unpack rar files. i downloaded one and changed the permissions as jonbro suggested and it worked! its a really cool game. i wish the weapon was a little easier to use, as you have to get right up close to the enemies. also there should always be a reward for defeating a big enemy. the rooms were nicely constructed and always felt fresh. you made all the different sheets work surprisingly well, none looked terrible. very solid overall.

Looks so good and done so quick! How did you manage to get the shop to change colors to match the tiles?

ShadowBrain says ...
May 18, 2015 @ 2:16pm

The shop and UI just use tiles from the sheet that gets changed globally :D

If you're talking about the 3D shop, I jsut unwrapped the model onto the spritesheet (rather sloppily but hey, it works.) so that just gets swapped too as it's still the using the same file for its texture :)

This game rocks! It's also a great way to test how good a spritesheet is :)

How did you manage to make every sprite sheet look decent??

ShadowBrain says ...
May 21, 2015 @ 2:10pm

There's a few sheets that are sorta weird looking but yeah, I just followed the template sheet and had my fingers crossed others did too, and it worked out for the most part :D

Awesome! Music was great! How did you make the chest be certain colors. I couldn't find what sprite you used

ShadowBrain says ...
May 24, 2015 @ 10:28am

I used 2 from the lower row and the weird purple color from the end of the first row in the ground tiles I believe. :)

Nice! :D Found while scrolling the frontpage on LD! You tweeted me a while ago about making a sheet from my picture :D Bookmarking this to try it when I get home from work! :D

Working on it man! After I finish up a small other project I'll get back to the expanded version of this. Hope to have it done before the end of this month.
