Ludum Dare 24
August 24th-27th 2012 :: Theme: Evolution
A Cycle of Ages - Red Mike - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Caution: contains kittens!
Windows version built with py2exe. Other versions are pure Python 2.x. Requires Pygame, preferably up to date.
Transitions between levels and startup involve a lot of data being juggled around. 600MB of RAM are needed, generally. If it fails, it will give out a pygame.error about running out of memory. There is nothing I can do about this without rewriting the engine.
BETWEEN LEVELS, the game might appear STUCK. If the music is still going, it's not actually stuck, just loading the level. I should have made that more clear in the text on the page. Wait for up to 30 seconds. The loading process is sadly very slow.
I'd appreciate it if any comments also included how easily you drew the link to the theme, or if you even found a link between the two. I'm especially interested in hearing if you thought the theme was subtly introduced or very obviously.
The game has no sounds, except for the music track. There appears to be a bug with the music making it so it might not start up properly on non-Windows OSes.
Arrow keys - movement.
Escape - quit.
M - mute music.
