Ludum Dare 21
Escape the Fate - Jiggawatt - 48 Hour Competition Entry
An 8-level (+intro) puzzle/action game about a curse. The objective is to kill yourself - or rather, the body you're haunting. Experiment with things like dying from fall damage or getting squished by moving objects.
Important: install the included font before playing. The game loves it so much, it seems to crash without it. Thanks to Joeyy from #ludumdare for helping me discover this. After that, start the game from /dist/curse.exe. The necessary few attributions can be found in readme.txt. And let's not forget bfxr for the sound effects.
A & D to move, W to jump (even when falling), S to flip switches. R to retry if you get stuck.
I initially submitted this game with several hours to go. Due to feedback, the update submitted on the extended time added a simple level 0.
For people with small screens (such as laptop users): I've made an alternative version which runs in a 608x448 window. This in turn made some animations play back faster, so I also slowed them down to roughly the original speed. Otherwise the code is unchanged, it's merely a bugfix. Thanks to Wallacoloo for mentioning this.
1.0d fixed a missing hard-coded event in the fifth level.
