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!

Replay value!

ok, i finished this game twice and i love it! maybe a bit too easy for a jump 'n run, but still really nice
the game design and mechanics(collect stuff) reminds me a lot of knytt.

also theres a minor bug: when you collect the pearl and bring it to the owner, she drops an item. if you dont pick it up and move to another screen, the dropped item disappears as well as your pearl -> you have to collect the pearl again to get the detector to drop again.

now excuse me please, im working on the last two achievements now hehe.

Incredibly fun!

There are a few games, that have interesting stories, worlds, and gameplay, that I play over and over again, even though I know the endings. This is going on that list.
Between the complicated worlds, the puzzles, and the freedom you have to get different endings, (not to mention the awesome music in every area) this has the feel of the very best of the old-school platform adventure games. Awesome. Keep up the good work!
