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!

Enjoy!

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!

This is worth playing

Really, REALLY, one of the best games I have ever played. This game is peaceful and relaxing and worth playing until the end =3 But i still rate it 9 due to the mazes.

Nice

Good story, but you can get lost and confused easily.
The graphics add a special feeling to the game.
Good job

Brilliant game, I loved every minute of it. The only thing I never found was the mushroom so I'll have another go sometime and try to find it to see what it does. Maybe I'll not destroy the world in the process next time.

Wonderful game, but so you're telling me that in order to get a good ending, I gotta do it ALL OVER AGAIN?! (I tried to just meet all the requirements at the same time, I'm a completionist) Well, I am very sad, because I'm not persistent enough for that right now. Maybe much, much later I'll be interested again. Still though, 4.5 / 5 stars, because I enjoyed the experience, but remember: people will probably collect gems on their first run, and when they find they got the bad ending, it might frustrate them and put them off the game.
...Don't worry about it though, the game was great, and I'm sure that I'll return and do it right again later. I want all medals anyway XD
