Ludum Dare 23

The Underground Court - caranha - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You are a faerie, half insect, half man, who lives in a world separate from our own. In this game, you must venture from your comfortable home underground into the realms of men, in order to find delicacies to your queen.
Your final goal is to enter the very lair of Men, avoid his monstrous guardians, and acquire the ultimate prize for your queen. Can you do it?
This is my second dare. My initial idea was based on the movie "The Secret World of Arrietty", where a family of tiny people lived hidden in a house, taking food from the house while avoiding the "big people".
The original plan was to have other aspects to the game such as expand your own underground realm with specialists to help you, dealing with humans who would try to close the ant holes, etc. But due to my terrible time management, I only got so far as the "keep the queen alive, and go for the prize" part.
At least, compared to my previous LD entry, this was a big improvement. Mobs, Music, Real time, pausing, this game has many technical options not present on Maze Explorer, even if it might look a little less polished. More info about that on my upcoming post-mortem.
