You find yourself standing behind the developer (my evil twin), as they perform some last-minute checks for their game. Suddenly they realize they forgot to incorporate the theme, and so they delay your playing of the game. Do you leave, making your playthrough not-so-inevitable, or do you try to play a game that half-heartedly doesn't want to be played? There is only minor lack of risk (aka major risk) to your life if you choose the latter.
Controls (changeable ingame):
- WASD: Move
- LMB/RMB or J/K: Attack and Roll
- ESC: Pause Game
- Always Face Enemies: False (Turn on if you want full-keyboard gameplay, or suck at aiming)
About the voices:
The voice of the other half of your brain was amazingly-done by a friend (here's their CastingCallClub) who didn't have the time to make their own game, but was able to record a voiceover that I could assemble and use for the 'tutorial' screen. All speech mistakes had a perfect alternative, I just didn't double-check my audio cutting, and ran out of time.
All other voices where my own. I apologize for the bad mic quality mixed with effects that try to mask it, this was a first :P
Take note when rating:
- The tutorial screen voiceover is allowed by Compo rules, but I'm going to apply my personal rule and say not to include it in ratings as it was sent over the internet.
- The keybind framework was part of my base code and allow me to more easily support different keyboard layouts. I have a feeling a lot of people will like it, but you probably shouldn't take it into your ratings
- You can find my base code here, it includes a few small-but-tedious-to-make things like a pause, sound effect, and settings framework
- There is a final boss fight, you can cheese to it by lowering the difficulty in the pause screen
- The audio was imbalanced in the submitted version, I pushed a fix that adjusted it to all be mostly equal
