Hey folks! We made it! Here’s our game for the jam: The ZIGGURARK!

ss1

 

As an Explorer controlling half-cut, genetically recombined animals you have to wander through the dungeon of Tezcacoatlus, the Assembler God.

He’s a badass guy who has The Tool, an ancient relic capable of cutting animals in half creating hybrids. You take control of one hybrid and your goal is to get to the end of the eight levels in order to save your own life.

Hybrids has the good and bad sides of the animals they are made of: the body of a gorilla is extremely powerful, but its legs are slow.

…but what if you have the body of a gorilla running with the legs of a rabbit? You go FAST.

Move around with the arrow keys and fight with WASD, a-là Binding of Isaac. There are wooden crates throughout the levels: if you find one and you break it, you can recombine half of your hybrid with a new animal.

Because, you know, if you’re struggling with a turtle-rabbit hybrid maybe you need a stronger half… :-)

We are a team of two and we coded the game in HaxeFlixel, with art made in Pyxel Edit. It was our first game together (and absolute first with Haxe) and, even if it’s not as nearly as polished as we wanted, we had tons of fun making it. We made it in about 36 hours of work.

I really look forward to playing your games…
