11/8/11 Still working on the medals guys, hang in there. Also tried some more optimizing to fix the slippery/sticky controls issue some of you have. (also, if you have a FB tab up, try closing that)

**CONTROLS** LEFT/RIGHT walk left/right UP = Jump DOWN = Raise shield (while standing)/Use Weapon(later in game,while standing)

Oyeatia, creator and god of man surrenders his deity, descending to the green earth in search of a lost love. Gyossait sleeps in the warm black heart of the dying planet, her dreams seep into the weakening minds of man. The end begins.

Update History:

11/5/11 Patched vanishing keys, walking off map, alternative ending, Medals implemented but pending.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

As an art game - great

But art and gameplay seem always seem to be to some extent mutually exclusive. Not to say it was awful - overall I enjoyed playing - but I think the jumping could've been tweaked a little so the transition from being airborne to walking was a bit smoother, and other such tiny probs could've brought the gameplay up a few levels.
The aesthetic of the game itself is what did it for me - and I admittingly did find it haunting - but not understanding wtf was going on probably helped! The dark palette was effective (I've never seen such a dark pixel game) and disjointed ambient 'music' work to some effect.
I actually often principly dislike art games; which often overlook gameplay completely; but the designethic worked well enough to support the good-but-not-great gameplay.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

art is art

well to start off, I'm going to say I played the game fully, not half way, or pick it up then drop it, no I played it fully. I am also going to tell you that I am a fan of art games, and I know its Halloween, so of course the theme will be haunted or scary of some sort.

now then onto the review, to be honest this game has atmosphere, but that's about it, It has a much of a disturbing and creepy atmosphere you would if you were to watch an an experimental film, or reading very scary literature such as things called "creepy pastas," however art wise, there isn't much to it, I understand most of this is fantasy or symbolism, but i can't see it, nor can i get it, its like telling someone to draw a "scrakyloid ekynios"(made that up by the way) you're only going to interpret it by what you can see or get, so what I got from this is that some alien is here to save a goddess, from a god that went wrong. but it doesn't make much more else sense than that, form an art perspective its like painting a really bad Picasso, with a meaning of a story you made up. in short If you have something unfamiliar with us, make sure you express that clearly.

Graphics wise, it wasn't so bad, I love pixel games, and pixel art, some of the background could use some more work though, as well as some of the props, so no real complaints there.

NOW THEN, the gameplay is very bad, now its one thing to make a game that has artistic qualities, and make it so that way there is a story behind it, but the thing is, when there's no comprehendable story, the gameplay is severely noticeable. the physics engine was okay, but jumping is very sticky, and narrow, I found my self trying to jump in a narrow path onto a fan thing (red halo thing that boots you up) and often finding that I missed it, and had to go again, walking is okay, but very slow, I found jumping to be a more faster way to get around, normally this would be a problem, however since you wanted to incorprate enemies and such, it makes for horrible controls.

the level design seems roughly uninspired, as do puzzles and enemy placement, it would seem that with the type of enemies in the game you could at least have accomdated for them as well, such as a jump shoot, or a shield jump.

Sound wise, again, is terrible, and yet at the same time is alright for this type of atmoshpere, with out it, it wouldn't have made the same atmoshpere that the game was supposed to go for. for this type I would say that it was okay and meh at its best, it would have been nice to include some creepy and melancholic piano pieces or such sort. even some expiremental violins would be still keeping the atmosphere.

Overall, its OKAY, its certainly not the best game where there has been a very creepy and disturbing atmosphere, but this one was handled where you need it to. it just needs small and minor improvements, done to mostly game mechanics and story writing, other than that it did give me a very creepy and disturbed atmosphere, however only to the point where it got annoying.

7.5 really

It had some flaws, but overall i thought it was pretty nice. I felt the character went to slow and was lagging. Overall I thought a lot of the visuals were nice but some individual sprites looked weird (like the main character, he looked liked a weird fucked up marshmellow man). Thought the level designs were pretty good. The story was vague but interesting. Thought some of the backgrounds were nice, and honestly the front page picture of the game is what attracted me to it and i think tis a really amazing picture. Not bad. Dont fret about the ppl giving 1 and 0s, hell at least you actually developed you flash skills. hope to see whatever u do next!
p.s.>what is the ending song? i like it a lot, in fact im still listening to it in the game right now!


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Keep trying

This game tries to create an atmosphere and fails hard at achieving so. The game itself was boring, the story was utter nonsense trying to be something deep, and overall the only thing which is OK are graphics. Even so, and it hurts so say this after your hard work, this game is not good. To put it simple: I would not buy it.

I really couldn't pick up...

No introductory with instructions, no backround story, nothing much. Just dropped onto a wierd planet, from a wierd looking open head... I really couldn't understand what the eff was just happening, and I Ragequit. Damn. that was TOO confusing.... It did have some good-freaky music, and random appearing trees, but yeah. I really didn't like the game...
