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!

wonderful game! I play it whenever I feel upset. i can just zone out to the strangely soothing yet sometimes abrupt music (I was startled when I first entered the volcano area). once you get a hang of the controls you feel so quick and spry! my first ending, I defeated the diety but had also killed a few of the non-speaking creatures, so I got the neutral ending. From there I found myself replaying it over and over again to try and get all the different endings. I also like how the dialogue of the other dwarves above changes per ending you end up completing.

[SPOILERS for MYSTERY ENDINGS if you'd rather figure them out on your own! do go try that first. once you get a sense of where everything is and a better handle on the controls, you can finish the game in no time.] defeat the diety without killing any creatures to get the first ending. for the next ending, collect all the gems and restore power to the deity. finally, you get the last ending if you kill 20 creatures then defeat the deity. you receive the final achievement once you've completed all the endings, and it doesn't matter in which order you complete the endings.

i don't know if its absurd to wish there were achievements and/or endings for, let's say, killing every single creature above and below... or defeating the diety without collecting a single gem... just hypothetically though! it's not like I tried them both while trying to get all the mystery endings or anything.

anyway, thank you, author, for creating such a short and lovely game! keep up the good work and stay safe:)

Just as i remember it

bloody amazing i think i got a bad ending ps i murderd everything as so i got the lightning

One of my favorites!

so, im not the only one that played Knytt...
