Ludum Dare 23
April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World
Quest^3 - angryshroom - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Tips (Read if you're having a difficult time):
-Potions can be (and always could be) used AT ANY TIME.
-Every item increases your fighting (and some fleeing) chance.
-In the beginning, your fighting chance will be 15% less than your fleeing chance.
-Fortresses and Towers are difficult, so be prepared (with potions) before you go.
-Massing potions, and deciding when to fight or flee are very important.
-Dying a few times is normal. If you really are completely lost, head for a Fortress to get your first item.
The whole 'Tiny World' theme is part of the fact that the cubic world is tiny, and that its basically on top of a Rubik's cube. This is just what came to mind when I thought of 'Tiny World'.
Instructions are in-game.
No sound. I didn't have enough time to generate and implement it as I actually just finished. :(
-I didn't use any libraries really, I just used whatever is offered by HaXe (which is open-source).
-I did use some base code, though they were extremely simple . I actually ended up discarding most of them and rewriting them during the compo anyway.
-I used someone else's free-to-use font. There are no specifications with personal vs. commercial use, but here is the pool of fonts I got it from, and it's creator's profile: http://www.dafont.com/max.d967
-When the map moves, it always moves upward so you know what's next.
-More potions = not failing.
-Its not a very long game, and figuring out where the items are comes from exploring, really. The village shop will give you some hints after you buy <something> *hint hint*.
-It has been confirmed that the game is DIFFICULT, but not impossible! ;) Play the [Updated] version for a (hopefully) easier time.
-Be wary that if any bugs exist (I think I managed to pick up most, if not all of them :D), they will exist in both the [Updated] and [Original] version.
-I would really appreciate if you played the [Original] Web link first, primarily because that is what I believe I should be judged on. Not much difference exists except what's listed in Post-Compo Notes.
-Found out the Windows version is sort of due to some things I hadn't considered with compile targets. Opt to play the Web link rather than download the Windows version, at least for now.
-I took the comments below into consideration and made the game somewhat easier (I hope) in the [Updated] version.
-I made the text on the signs for OK and Yes/No lighter and easier to see.
