I have played all of the games entered in the MiniLD #62 in my video compilation series and wrote an article on my favorites!

MiniLD62 Game (Prototype) submitted

After many desperate attempts at creating a “complete game”, I decided for this MiniLD I’m just gonna do what I’m best at: programmer art, buggy game physics and incomplete games.

The whole gameplay, condensed into one gif

So I ended up with this prototype for a platformer, where you use a giant sawblade to move/attack/shield yourself.

It’s ugly, missing audio, has severe hitbox issues, is nearly unplayable with a keyboard and is only a fraction of what I had planned (the usual feature creep), but it was just so much fun to make and play, that I had to share it.

Here have another choppy gif

Although the initial idea was fighting giant bosses, I quickly found, that platforming/navigating levels was much more fun that fighting. At least something learned through rapid prototyping.

So, if this sounds interesting to you, grab a controller, and enjoy cutting up helpless slimes and giant bosses (well not the planned “multistage epic final bosses” but still, I managed to implement two regular ones).
