Endeavor is a game about a dwarf trying to uncover an ancient secret. Or maybe it's about exploring, climbing, and swimming. Or perhaps it's about collecting powerups and treasure. Or possibly it's just about killing things.

With multiple endings, quests, interactive npcs and ambient critters, it's my most involving game yet! It features many original musical tracks, several upgrades, and an engaging climbing and endurance scheme.

Controls:
Left/Right arrows to move
X to jump
Up/Down arrows to climb
P to pause and display collections
C to advance text
Q to return to the title screen (Use this if the game gets stuck for some reason!)

Volume controls:
-/+ to adjust volume
0 to mute

This game was made in one month for the Ludum Dare October challenge, though it took another month for release!

If you like this game, be sure to check out some other AWESOME games that inspired me!

Enjoy!

Note: Once you've reached an ending, you won't be able to get a different ending without restarting the game. Don't worry, getting the other endings is much faster when you know where everything is!

Update: Some people are getting lag whenever they touch a flower- this is due to an auto-save feature that I've decided to remove (note that the game still autosaves whenever you collect a powerup or switch screens, just not on touching flowers anymore). I've submitted the latest version which should get approved soon, so bear with me! Thanks for playing!

Update 12/2: There seems to be a bug with running out of endurance underwater and getting trapped in air bubbles. I'm working on fixing it! If this happens, press Q to return to the main menu, and then reload your save file.

Update 12/3: Patched to fix the underwater bug, pressing escape now pauses AND unpauses. Added tip menu screen to press p to see collections. Also added an additional creature on the island above the light beam. Hopefully the update goes live soon!

Update 12/11: Added a link to a full map of the game, see above!

Best Game Ive played in a long time

Been on Newgrounds since nearly the beginning. Never felt the need to quit being lazy and put forth the effort to write a review. Till This. Reminds me of Shadow of Colossus and a hand full of other games. Music was spot on. Mechanics while a tad frustrating at times, simple enough and enjoyable to keep trying. Love the simple yet superb scenery with all the ambient objects and creatures. really felt like I was in different biomes and ecosystems. Great game again. Looking forward to more.

Nice game

I likes it. Beat it, then went back for seconds.

Just so you know, I found a glitch. I killed the guy in the breathing hole underwater with lightning, right by the entrance to underground section, and just as I did, I ran out of endurance at the same time I killed him, causing me to float upwards as though I had run out of air, and even though I passed through the air pocket and refilled my endurance, I couldn't move when I hit the ceiling of the air pocket. Doubt it's something that would happen to most people, I'm chalking it up to fluke, but thought I'd give you the heads up regardless.

Simply amazing

This is without question one of the best flash games I've ever seen. The pure creativity, open world exploration, advancement of abilities, and variety of endings make this a near perfect game; though I honestly can't find anything to complain about.
