The Dark King is about to release the Black Plague upon the kingdom. Find and distribute the antidote before everyone dies (or I guess you could be a sadist and just let them all die)

- Arrows (or A and D) to steer
- P to pause
- V to switch view
- Q to toggle quality

This game has been a beast to build... please read all these notes for full info

Main game engine is pseudo-3D, which is quite CPU-intensive, so if it shows lag, try switching to medium quality (use Q). This is also the reason that the graphics are quite simple: the game (or rather, the average PC) simply can't handle complex graphics in a 3D engine.
Game has two modes - STORY (hard and easy have different endings), and SURVIVAL (online 500-place scoreboard, bonus pick-ups)
Many thanks to Ani-x for the animations and the majority of graphics, to Dan for the game concept, and to the various AP musicians for the audio

This game was supposed to have been submitted before the end of Feb, so it's a week late - I underestimated the amount of time required to insert cutscenes and subtitles. I'm quite happy with it, though, hopefully it was worth the delay. I'll warn you now, hard mode is HARD

Thanks for playing

What the Hell?!

This is absolute shit. I'm sorry but-- I'm not. This is absolute shit. What the hell were you thinking? The entire game, from concept to execution is a poor and mismanaged waste of, I would imagine at least, dare I say months of your life... It's such a shame... you could have gone on a course or something in that time. Oh well, I'm sure you're very proud... front page and all. Well I wish you all the luck in the world in the future, and look forward to seeing what you create when you develop some sort of inspired opportunism.

You're funny.

To be honest I didn't like it one bit, mainly due to the fact that I couldn't see anything happening when I pushed the buttons. The pause and quality buttons worked but that's all.

Maybe a better attempt is needed at this?
