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.

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!

(Remove the two spaces in the link to get it to work... I'm not sure why it's doing that!)

Feel free to pm me with any comments or questions you have!


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!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Sweet game.

While I will admit that it resembles Shadow of the Colossus in some respects, I wouldn't say it takes everything from that game. This game focuses primarily on exploration and trying to escape a strange land, while SotC was about taking down giant beasts to bring back a loved one. Besides, not being able to die isn't the point of this game.

I give you a 9. Keep up the good work, bro.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


The graphics were simplistic, yet nostalgic. The music was great. The multiple ending were numerous but easy enough to get that I could get them in one sitting. This game is great! I'll admit that it's very much like Shadow of the Colossus in my opinion, but that doesn't take away from my experience with the game. Great job!


Rated 2 / 5 stars

could use more originality

Magic plants that enhance your power, disembodied voices acking you to help put them back together, grip-meter, strong emphasis on climbing, and stone/plant fused environments, this all seems very familiar. This is shadow of the colossus. This game takes everything except the horse and bosses. that was my first issue, the second is that there's no danger, only frustration. These pixel games are the flash equivalent of a shaggy dog joke, it's a non-game.
I'm giving you four stars for the sheer size of the game world and the good atmosphere. If you worked on making your characters relatable this could be a pretty good game.

Its more frustraiting than anything. I dislike the controls why cant the up key be the jump button? The graphics are just plain tiny the whole indurance thing is not well explained. I honestly don't think that this would make the front page if it did not have medals. Next time improve the graphics (Bigger so I can actually see the guys and stuff and make the up key the jump key or even just the space bar)
