In the original version of my game I locked the window size to 1280×960, which turned out as a bad thing to do. Some people were complaining that the edges of the screen were cut off. To solve this problem I have now implemented an options-menu that allows you to switch between window sizes. You can also press F5 to toggle. While I was at it, I also made a proper windowed-mode and fixed some minor bugs. I don’t know how the game looks on widescreen now – if there are any problems, please report!
If you have experienced low framerates, you can now press F10 to deactivate the dynamic vignetting effect and replace it with a single sprite. This damages the look and mood very badly – use it only if the game runs really slow! (press F11 to see the fps)
The Darkness You Wander Alone
This is a short retro-acion-platformer. You are wielding the sword of swords to shoot your way though darkness and hordes of mysterious hostile creatures. Enjoy!
I spent most of the available time on that darkness/vignetting effect and on playing around with sine wave interference (which you can see in the title screen), but I think that was worth it. I’d love to add more content, a story and an actual ending – we’ll see…
Also, this was not only my first Ludum Dare but this is the first game I ever released.
Controls: Arrow keys + Z + X
The tools I used:
- Game Maker 6.1
- Musagi and Audacity (sound)
- Gimp (some graphics)
This is Eelfroth, signing off. I was in!
EDIT: Does anybody have the new Game Maker version and can compile the game for mac, please?
