Ludum Dare 20
April 29th-May 2nd, 2011
Theme: It’s Dangerous to go Alone! Take this!
Eunaborb - krangGAMES - Competition Entry
-Use the mouse to drag the ball!-
Traverse the universe with your Eunaborb, guide it through treacherous mazes and hone your skills in this simple and compelling game!
Includes a fully-equipped level editor and 12 premade levels, for endless Eunaborb excitement!
Alright! Now that that's out of the way...
I know, it's not exactly "It's dangerous out there!" material, but unfortunately the time constraints of Ludum Dare forced me to go light on that. Originally the game was meant to have 25 levels with a text-based cutscene between every five levels, propelling a narrative involving your journey to adulthood and your father guiding you along. Like I said, time constraints caught up and the narrative had to be cut :/ However, the game WAS designed to tell a story about how your father gave you the Eunaborb in order to survive in the universe! The theme WAS considered! :P
Other cut features include two more songs (one for the menu, one for the level editor) and the ability to load custom levels straight from the main menu, without having to go into the level editor.
Anyway, I'm quite proud of what I managed to accomplish, especially considering I missed almost the first 12 hours of development :) The game has a full level editor (from scratch). You can import/export map codes directly, and you have three save slots in-game for your favorite maps!
2 KNOWN GLITCHES:
- After playing a level from within the PLAY GAME menu, player cannot return to root menu. Refresh the game to do so.
- The mute button just doesn't work. Sorry :P
You can play the game online, download the source code .FLA, and also download the music (which includes the two music tracks that didn't make it in the final game). My internet is super slow right now, but once it's better I'll upload a .zip with ALL the external scripts and full source :)
