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.

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!

You can find a full map of the game at
(Remove the two spaces in the link to get it to work... I'm not sure why it's doing that!)

Feel free to pm me with any comments or questions you have!


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!

I absolutely love this game

I absolutely love this game. The concept of a platformer without any enemies, and without any real way to die is done to absolute perfection. This game drew me in for about 2 hours to complete all three main endings.

And then an additional 3-4 trying to complete it as quickly as possible. Overall I was absolutely enthralled by the simplicity of this game.

Also while making the speedrun I noticed one semi-glitch which was very frustrating. And that is that if you take the evil route, the guy *spoiler* which gives you teleport only gives you teleport if you are standing on top of him, something different from just about every other character in the game. Besides that great job :)

This game was so much fun to play. The graphics are a bit of a turn off but I'm glad I stayed and gave this game a chance, because it is very fun once you get into it a bit.

I will be returning to find other endings, achievements, and areas that I didn't in this play through. Thank you for entertaining me for a good hour or so. =]

This game seriously gave me shivers when I finished it. I felt so sad, for some incomphrehensible reason.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I got all the achievements in four run throughs of the game. It was an amazing game, don't give it up!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great Game

I loved the plot, it was simple yet well presented.
The music? Great.
The environments were delightfully retro.
The endurance system was interesting.
Most importantly, it was just fun to play. Good Job.
