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!

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!

Great game!

Do I detect a heavy SHadow of the Colossus or Knyt influence? Weakened deity asks you to bring it's power back, by doing something for it, but has its own motives? Endurance metre measures how long you can hold on to something? This sword is the only thing that can slay it/them? Plus the detector and collecting things to go home/ exploration reminded me of Knyt strongly. Now, down to the actual review. This game. Is awesome. A vast world, collecting things, talking to people, gahering gems/ souls. This game is probably one of the best I've played on Newgrounds. Thanks for posting!

Great game!

Nice and smooth controls, they can take a moment to get used to but after that is is very easy to control the player.
Multipule storylines are nice, only found 2 possible ones as of the current time, but don't know how many more if any, there are.

The large game map is nice but it can be slightly hard to go to a specific point sometimes. PLayers need to play the game one to to a good knowladge of where most things are.

The endurance system is very cool and runs very smooth. POwerups to reduce the endurance cost are an interesting idea.

The images/artwork are very nice and are a high detail level for a Fixel run game. The audio can seem repetitive if the player is in one area for a while but that's not a major issue.

The addition of a new medals is nice. With a single game completed the player can get 3-4 medals easily.

Great game overall! 5/5 9/10

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.
