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!

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!

I should've known...

This game reminded me alot of Shadow of the Colossus but mixed with Zelda/Mario, and just as in SotC, I again inadvertently helped restore power to the evil deity lol! But that's my loss, the game was very good overall and I played it all the way through to the end. I also thought the music did a good job of setting a unique mood for each area; It was great.

Mmmmm...pixels...

This game is brilliant. The graphics, the sound, the environments, the characters...all awesome. I can see you put a lot of work into this.

I could tell throughout the game that getting the gems was probably a bad idea, but I didn't see the alternative until it was way too late. This is definitely worth a replay though.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go back and try again. :)

after i jumped off the cliff and talked to malor, every flower i touched would make the game freeze for a couple seconds. got too frustrating. im sure the game is great but i wont be finishing any time soon
