The Dark King is about to release the Black Plague upon the kingdom. Find and distribute the antidote before everyone dies (or I guess you could be a sadist and just let them all die)

- Arrows (or A and D) to steer
- P to pause
- V to switch view
- Q to toggle quality

This game has been a beast to build... please read all these notes for full info

Main game engine is pseudo-3D, which is quite CPU-intensive, so if it shows lag, try switching to medium quality (use Q). This is also the reason that the graphics are quite simple: the game (or rather, the average PC) simply can't handle complex graphics in a 3D engine.
Game has two modes - STORY (hard and easy have different endings), and SURVIVAL (online 500-place scoreboard, bonus pick-ups)
Many thanks to Ani-x for the animations and the majority of graphics, to Dan for the game concept, and to the various AP musicians for the audio

This game was supposed to have been submitted before the end of Feb, so it's a week late - I underestimated the amount of time required to insert cutscenes and subtitles. I'm quite happy with it, though, hopefully it was worth the delay. I'll warn you now, hard mode is HARD

Thanks for playing

Very nice.

Awesome job with the pseudo-3d, it's very well scripted. I really enjoyed this one. The graphics are fairly good, the sounds are good enough, gameplay is good, storyline is great...good job all around.

As a side not, that girl's pretty dang hawt.

good.. but

your highscore system on survival is fucked right up... it wont even submit scores...

might wanna look at that, there's very little more frustrating than trying your ass off, beating a highscore and then nothing happening..

other than that though, spiffy game!

Nicely Done

Good job. Very addictive and entertaining. Also, it's a very interesting take on a game as there seems to be little variety these days. Loved the music too, gave the feeling of really being on an epic quest. You have a lot of potential - keep it up. One thing I might've done is add in some variety of challenges, such as actually getting to fight the knights at the start. Thumbs up!

Slick animation, sweet story, very interesting...

Of course, I'm talking about the cutscenes, not the actual game. I got into the story really well, but having to play that wagon crap in the middle really dragged it down. It was worth replaying to see the story and whatnot, but I probably couldn't take another one of those drive straight and dodge 10,000 copies of the same object games without losing my mind.

Work on the gameplay, or at least make it into a sweet movie. ^_^

p.s. Loved that loading screen!
