This isn't technically my first game, but it's the first one I've actually finished. I have a tendency to make games super complex, and wanted to make something as simplistic as possible, without actually sucking completely. (Hopefully I've succeeded.)
I do have a few other games I'm working on, mostly shooters/action/adventure games. So, none of my future games will be anything like this one, most likely.
I decided at the last second to add in an option to play the game using the mouse. It wasn't designed with that in mind, and it does make the game a lot easier, but I enjoy playing it that way as well so I didn't want to limit people.
Edit: I had a weird graphical glitch when you died when I first uploaded it. It should be fixed now.
Edit2: Made some difficulty/graphics changes.
