Some Happier Star

by mike.cullingham - Mini LD 62 Entry

* Version 1.0.1 is available as the post-jam version. I fixed a few bugs and did a bit for game balance. Also removed most of Edgar Allan Poe's poem because I felt there was too much text to read.
* The pre-battle conversation is super-rushed, but it's basically a conversation between a Hamadryad and her tree, who has used artificial means to extend its life. Her life force is tied to the tree's, so it's definitively a "final" boss. Hopefully not too pretentious. :-)

Very good game. I loved the way the gears worked and the background was beautiful. Very good graphics with lots of detail.

Thanks @stevenjmiller. I was really happy when I got the gears animating the way I wanted so I'm glad someone noticed.

Fun game, cool graphics. I included it in part 3 of my Mini LD #62 compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out!
