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!

If you like this game, be sure to check out some other AWESOME games that inspired me!

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!

Nice!

Definitely loved the music and game play. Had this Shadow of the Colossus feel to it which was a really great touch. I'll be playing this again to get the other ending, because I think I got a bad one. Ha Ha. Awesome work! Definitely a 10/10 and 5/5 from me.

WOW. Just... Wow.

This game was nothing short of epic.

This is the first pixel game ever to actually give me chills. Just, WOW. Keep up the great work!

I dun goofed

What an amazing game! I kept getting this sense of foreboding while I was playing it, and I didn't realize how much I'd f**ed up until it was too late :P Good story and interesting game.



Sweettt

This is a very interesting game for a pixel style. It is very adventurous and it's like one of those games you should pay for to play (please don't charge anybody :P) It's ideas are amazing and the controls are easy to learn. It doesn't take 5 minutes to get across one "room" or area (whew). I know it's probably been asked several times before and you or someone else might or might not have said it already, but how do you kill something?... T.T
