Author Comments

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!

Great game! Found a little bug...

Hey there-
Love your game. Really immersive, reviews are right. Just... knocked a point because it glitched on my second playthrough. This probably isn't something that happens often (and is perhaps related to the air bubble glitch), but after getting flippers I just dropped down, barely hit a ledge (so I got stunned) then continued to fall down into the water. My little guy froze and I couldn't move him anymore...

Zillix responds:

Ah, that is an unrelated glitch! Thanks for reporting it!
In general, if the game freezes, you can reload it by pressing Q to go to the main menu.
Thanks for playing =D

holy crap

Awesome game overall, my only gripe is the absence of any kind of map.
It's not an absolute necessity, but it's a little comfort that would make the whole package pretty much perfect.
By the way, I've got 8 gems and now the temple only sends me either to the jungle to the east or to the fire mountain...and I can't get to either of 'em! >.<

Adventure time!

I had so much fun playing this game.. I remember when I first started I was like "No! I fell" but then it turned out I had to fall anyway...

I tried to side with the bad guy but I had a bad feeling about him so I avoided going there.

Things that were great:
Free-roam adventure. Upgrades.

Things that needed a little work:
Nothing :)

Good job. I look forward to your next installment.

Fun game.

It was an interesting game. Fun to explore the world, and it had a decent soundtrack. The graphics were nice. I got the "bad" ending, though I saw it coming way before I got there.

It's an awesome game, and was great to play. My only problem is that the medals didn't seem to work at all. I only got one, but I see several that I met the requirements for. Medals don't really matter, though, so it's not that big of a deal.

Great job! Keep up the good work.

very nice game

very nice, I like how it's very lare and maze like yet I never got lost for very long.

bu I gave you a 9 instead of a 10 for the friggin vines :)

seriously, the only thing I didn't like is I don't want to play the entire game through to try for other endings. even if I could start partway in it wouldn't be too bad.
