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.

Hmm not bad but...

[SPOILER ALERT]

While this game was interesting, It made me wonder what this game is actually meant to be about, I mean i know its meant to be an art game but the story could have been a bit clearer, i never did really get it.

The graphics where good although the thing being so small i was hard to tell what things were. I seem be some kind of white knight with a shield with red monks throwing daggers at me, and oh look a machine gun. Right.

While this was interesting it was certainly out of place. Some of the text that was just sprawled here and there was very hard if not impossible to read.

Some of the things that could have been improved are thing like shield only being able to use when standing still while it is not necessary to be able to use it while running, to be able to use it while in mid-air would be nice especially since i got shot out of the air a few times by a enemy i could not see..

Keys, Doors and Strange Contraptions make that platforms appear, Oh my.
While the key and door a good block to find something to get to the next stage i didn't even realize it was a key until i saw the same symbol on the door.
That and my key almost got stuck a few times, I'm one of the lucky ones.

This game leaves a lot to be desired on the bosses specially one being some kind of gypsy woman's face which had destructible light bulbs and a heart within. And the other being a giant woman with thorny armour and a some kind of arm cannon. Also when she was hurt she turned red, and when damaged some armour fell off and her hair changed colour......What is this?! Poison Ivy with upgrades!

Only other thing would probably be the added momentum which scores you no points.

All that being said not a bad game. A little weird for my liking but not truly bad. 5/10

Dissapointing

As i was playing this game i did feel that sure, it had a decent story line, it just had so much that couldve been better, some more time spent making this would of been better

What the hell was that?

I agree with 'deviceheretic', pretension does not suffice for quality. I got into the game not knowing what it was about other than "Oyeatia, creator and god of man surrenders his deity, ... The end begins." and about 2 minutes into the game I waswandering around like an idiot not knowing what the hell to do. Very little instruction is given and motive to continue is low. But, that's just my opinion, getting into this type of game was never my forte.

The visuals are nice though, I liked the subtle 'cave drawings'.

Bad controls

Here's what I don't understand. Why do I have to stand EXACTLY under the red circle thing so it could boost me up? Why are the controls so bad that I have to hold down buttons for every single actions I have to do? Form all the buttons, why "down" for weapons?
Now here's my opinion. The game isn't scary at all, the story & concept is alright. I love the art. Sadly, with the control flaws makes the game boring. The game itself is not scary at all, the sound at every time you re spawn aren't scary, it's annoying. I have to take my headphones off because of that. Yes I died a lot, because of the button problems. Lastly, there's nothing in the game to make it interesting to play it through, I felt like a burden finishing it (which is bad for a game)

PS. respawn the keys up to land when you die in water will be good, replaying it again is bad

PPS. I found a bug, when you use a shield to deflect bullets, the bullets stops at the shield. When removing the shield, it stays mid-air.

I'm aware of the fact that is an art game...

...but that, unfortunately, will not make some of this game's flaws acceptable. I'll admit, I didn't beat it, but that was merely because I lost a key and cannot get it back.

It's obvious that you put a lot of effort into this game, that you wanted to create an atmosphere, and something darkly beautiful. Unfortunately, this is a case of trying to run before you can walk. If you're going to create an arty platformer, you need to first make a good PLATFORMER, then you can feel confident in giving it an artistic direction. Look at Braid, or Limbo, those are games that really pushed the atmosphere of a 2D platformer...but they had solid gameplay aside from that.

The controls and mechanics of your game are clunky. I'm sorry, but they are. Until they are not, it can be appreciated, but certainly not enjoyed.
